RAGE 2 Released

RAGE 2 (aka Rage 2) is now available on Steam, offering a sequel to id Software's 2010 first-person shooter. This return to the apocalyptic wasteland is developed by Avalanche Studios in conjunction with id, and the announcement has word on the game, which puts you in the boots of Ranger "Texas" Walker:
Let the RAGE-ing commence! RAGE 2 is now available worldwide for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. In RAGE 2’s “shooterverse,” you’ll experience classic id Software combat in an insane Avalanche Studios open world as Ranger Walker, the world’s closest thing to a superhero and best hope at overthrowing the tyrannical reign of General Cross and his mutated Authority minions.

WATCH the launch trailer here: https://youtu.be/PLQg-Vq2zQk

Master your devastating arsenal of flesh-chewing weapons combined with your performance enhancing Nanotrite-infused abilities to help turn the enemies of the wastes into bags of flesh. From the River Hogs of the swamps, to the Goon Squad of the wastes, to the sewer-dwelling mutants, to the samurai-esque Immortal Shrouded, everything in RAGE 2 is out to get you. Make sure you get all of them first. Want to learn more about what RAGE 2 brings to the table?

Denuvo DRM is now removed. Just saw that on Steam.

Seriously? LOL.

So they paid what was presumably a big chunk of money to have that shit on there for exactly, what, 18 hours? What a bunch of fucking morons.

Also the menus are horribly slow on my system (Threadripper + 1080ti). Moving anywhere, either page to page or even on the same page, is about .5 - 1 second per click. Luckily the map comes up pretty quick, but everything else is so slow.

The menus are fully ray-traced. You just need to move up to the 2080ti, and the performance will be snappy.

No issues with slow menus here, and the tutorials stop relatively quickly other than for new powers/weapons. Also I don't think the animations are long at all for picking up chests and stuff. You just click E on them and then can walk away, you get all the stuff without standing there waiting.

Every 60-120 seconds the game pauses and tells you about how to do something really basic.

This one is driving me crazy. Talk about abruptly taking you out of the game. And there's no way to make it clear faster. Same stupid animation for how much money you got, same stupid animation for leveling up. QA must have had a hidden switch to turn that off or they'd have killed themselves while testing.

Also the menus are horribly slow on my system (Threadripper + 1080ti). Moving anywhere, either page to page or even on the same page, is about .5 - 1 second per click. Luckily the map comes up pretty quick, but everything else is so slow.

Watch a play thru, man the tutorial popups are insane, it's worse than a mobile game.

Every 60-120 seconds the game pauses and tells you about how to do something really basic....(and this goes on for the first 1hr of gameplay, probably more) who the hell wants to read a manual when you should be shooting stuff? The whole point of games is to discover through play and experimenting.


.... and then there's forced training rooms for the power abilities.....

just awful game design.




it's a shame because the gun play looks pretty fun, I'd definitely pick it up if it had coop (which it doesn't lol).

I was referencing the art design specifically.

Review copies were supplied by Steam. They did it that way to prevent pre-release release, or is it premature release.

Ah, good call. Hopefully they patch it out then, and hopefully it doesn't take a year like with Dishonored 2.

It doesn't have Denuvo on the Bethesda launcher supposedly, so that's probably why. God knows why they used it on Steam alone.

It's pretty solid. Has a little day one jank but nothing too bad. Default keybinds are terrible but everything can be changed. Depth of field is HORRIBLE, make sure you turn it off or it's blur city everywhere. Gunplay is solid, gameplay is good. Recommended if you like Far Cry type games and want one in this setting.

Looks like Borderlands assuming that Gearbox stuck with the more realistic art design.

And it seems to have A LOT more contents than e.g. Anthem.

My toilet bowl has more content than Anthem. That's literally the lowest bar in the universe to clear.

But you do understand that between the open world in FarCry (which is a part of the posting you did not quote) games and the open world in your toilet bowl, there is plenty of room for different levels of contents?
