offers an E3 2019 trailer
for RAGE 2
, offering a look at the future of the shooter sequel in a clip styled
after an 80s television intro. The clip shows off the free weekly content coming
to the game, as well as a glimpse of the Rise of the Ghosts expansion coming
later this year. Here's the roadmap:
Oh, that’s right. It’s a bunch of
awesome free shit, including new vehicles like the pilotable Mech and the
one-wheeled Armadillo, new dynamic events, new Cheats, and so. Much. More. Now,
you might be thinking to yourself, “Wow. Why are they giving all this stuff away
for free?” That’s a stupid question. It’s because we just love you guys, like,
so much. We would give you the moon if that weren’t such a stupid gift.
Seriously, where would you keep a moon? That’s not a present; it’s a
responsibility. Take a look at the latest RAGE 2 trailer for a sneak peak at
everything coming up and get the full breakdown of everything you’ll see below.
Here’s everything you’ll have access to over the next month:
- Pilotable Mech “Boom Bringer” vehicle – Mechs aren’t just for the River
Hogs anymore. Hop into the new Boom Bringer Mech and…. Well, bring the boom.
And the explosions. And the mindboggling amounts of pain.
- Global Worming dynamic event – Aside from having a really excellent
name, the Global Worming event introduces the Sand Worm, a massive new enemy
that will require all your Ranger skills to take down.
- Bug Swarm dynamic event – Don’t you love leaving your house in the
warmer months and immediately being assaulted by millions of flying insects?
Yeah, neither do we. Let’s kill all those little bastards.
- One-wheeled “Armadillo” vehicle – The name is cute, and if you ask us,
the vehicle is pretty cute, too. Cute in an “Oh god, it’s coming this way
and it’s not slowing down and it’s going to run right over me” kind of way.
So maybe not that cute. Definitely rad, though. (Did you know that
armadillos can transmit leprosy to humans? So cute!)
- “Ghost” motorcycle – Be the edgiest kid in the wasteland with the new
Ghost motorcycle. A hint of what’s to come in the upcoming Rise of the
Ghosts expansion, perhaps?
- Stanley Express missions – Visit key locations around the map and find
Stanley, an excellent source of missions and a machine-shaped friend.
- New Cheats – Get the TV fatal and OzzyMan voice packs, the Rejector Seat
Cheat, and more!
- New weapon skins
- New Daily Events
- New Wasteland Challenges and Community Events
The trailer also teased the Rise of the Ghosts expansion, which is coming
later this year. This huge expansion will add an entirely new questline, region
to explore, and faction to the game, in addition to a new weapon and ability to
add to your already impressive arsenal.
The teams at Avalanche and id Software have been listening to your comments and
feedback and are also working on new difficulty modes and a New Game+ mode, and
we’ll have more on that in the coming weeks.
