Rage 2: Everything You Need to Know About the New Title
Rage 2’s gameplay trailer simply exudes glorious mayhem, especially the launch video that released beforehand, doing its part in revving up the excitement for this epic sequel. It’s as if the chaos of Mad Max and Borderlands, and DOOM were all mixed in a basket. Oh wait, Rage 2 IS the brainchild of the same folks that developed every single one of those. Of course, Bethesda is loving their “outrageous post-apocalyptic sequel” and want to share a few definitive details on the game’s features including factions, setting, explorable landscapes, and all the vehicles galore.
Bethesda community manager, Neil Gorton, revealed that Rage 2 is a “fast-paced first-person action” game with “outrageous vehicle combat” in wide-open wasteland. There will be factions, mutants, epic abilities and the reprise of an old foe, the Authority. To fit into the whole aesthetic of post-apocalyptic destruction, plenty of neon lights, explosions and weapons will be at the player’s disposal to enjoy and revel in. Here’s what Gorton wants anticipating gamers to know:
Rage 2 Gameplay Features
The Last Ranger
When 80% of the Earth’s population was destroyed by an asteroid, the tyrannical Authority rose up to seek control and every scrap that slipped through their fingers was snatched up by those who remained. Some survivors fought for what resources they could and banded together in an attempt to rebuild society, but many decided this lawless new world could be a land of opportunity. Bloodthirsty gangs rose up in the chaos and every faction warred to rule this wasteland. You will play as Walker, the last Ranger. Robbed of your home and left for dead by the Authority, you’ll need to rage for your freedom using every tool at your disposal.
Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons and gear, strange and powerful Nanotrite abilities, and Overdrive, a unique skill that lets you push your guns far beyond their mechanical limits. It’s up to you to crush the oppressive rule of The Authority once and for all!
Lush jungles mix with treacherous swamps and sun-scorched deserts. The wasteland is massive and varied, but you’ve got the arsenal and vehicles needed to fight for every inch.
Pedal to the Metal
You’re going to need a way of getting around this huge world, but luckily for you, Rage 2 has a collection of wasteland-ready vehicles. From motorcycles to monster trucks to gyrocopters, you’ll have everything you need to turn the badlands into your personal playground of destruction.
Factions also have their own modes of weaponised transport, so always be on the lookout for a new ride. If you can see it, you can drive it.
Factions and Foes
Walker’s road to take down The Authority is going to be a tough one. A rogue’s gallery of monsters, mutants, and madmen await you in the wasteland. Just don’t go into the sewers empty handed.
If that wasn’t enough information to take in one sitting, there’s more to come shortly during E3 2018. Make sure to look out for announcements through June 12th to the 14th, for spectacular updates on your favorite franchises. From publishers and developers like Square Enix, Bethesda, Microsoft, and more – it’s going to be a great year for video games once again. What do you think of Rage 2 thus far?
