RAGE 2 – Rise of the Ghosts Rises

The Rise of the Ghosts expansion is now available from the in-game store for RAGE 2, the first-person shooter sequel from id Software and Avalanche Software. This post has all the details along with an Official Launch Trailer illustrating the news. Here's word:
Abandoned by the Rangers and left for dead, Iris has a score to settle, and she’s picked the perfect faction to help her achieve her goals of bringing the entire wasteland under her control. During the Authority Wars, Iris assumed control of the Ghosts and led them to the Overgrown City, promising them power and “enlightenment.” That’s really just a nice way of saying she brainwashed them and performed strange experiments on them, which granted them powers provided the process didn’t kill them.

Since going into hiding in the Overgrown City, the Ghosts have begun mining Feltrite, for reasons unknown. These mining operations have caused the air in the Overgrown City to become so polluted that the few remaining civilians are forced to wear gas masks just to avoid Feltrite poisoning. Now, desperate for aid, those civilians have turned to Ranger Walker as a last-ditch effort to save themselves from complete annihilation at Iris’ hands.

In addition to a huge new story, Rise of the Ghosts also introduces:

  • New Faction: Ghosts – Powered by Feltrite and armed with their own nanotrite abilities, the Ghosts have been left to their own devices for years. While growing their army in the Overgrown City, they’ve under undergone intensive brainwashing and formed a cult around Iris’ ideals.
  • New Region: Overgrown City – Explore a city overtaken by nature, where even the air is choked with Feltrite dust. The Overgrown City is home to a band of friendly survivors looking to take back their island from the Ghosts.
  • New Weapon: Feltrite Laser Launcher – This powerful new weapon incinerates any enemies in its path with a lethal Feltrite-infused beam. Just make sure it’s charged up and you’ll be ready to go.
  • New Ability: Void – Target an enemy with Void to grab them and suspend them in the air ragdoll-style before sending them flying with Shatter, or focus the ability to make your target’s head explode. Either way, you’re probably having a good time.
  • New Vehicle: Ghost Motorcycle – With all the heavy Feltrite pollution in the air you’ll want to stick close to the ground, but you can make your way through the Overgrown City in style with the new Ghost motorcycle.
