Back in 2011 a game called RAGE was released, which came from DOOM and Quake developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks. Bethesda already has a post-apocalyptic franchise in Fallout, but this game was more of a Mad Max or Borderlands type of post-apocalyptic caused by an asteroid hitting the planet instead of a bunch of nuclear warheads.
While it was an enjoyable game for the most part, it also proved to be pretty forgettable as well. It’s not a game people talk about much, if at all. For that reason, it was a little bit surprising to find out that RAGE 2 is on the way. id Software is once again working on the game but this time they’re joined by a second developer in Avalanche Studios, who’s very familiar with open worlds and post-apocalyptic games having made the Just Cause series and their own Mad Max game in 2015.
To unveil the game a short announce trailer was released first, followed by a gameplay trailer. You can read more info on the game and watch the two trailers below.
WHAT IS RAGE 2?
Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together two studio powerhouses â€“ Avalanche Studios, masters of open world insanity, and id Software, the gods of the first-person shooter â€“ to deliver a carnival of carnage where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.
THE LAST RANGER
Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons, devastating Nanotrite powers, and Overdrive, the ability to push your guns beyond their mechanical limits.
PEDAL TO THE METAL
From monster trucks to gyrocopters, use an assortment of rugged and wasteland-ready vehicles to speed across the badlands. If you see it, you can drive it.
FACTIONS & FOES
Fight against ferocious factions for control of the wasteland, each featuring a rogueâ€™s gallery of madmen, mutants, and monsters hungry for blood.
THE WASTELAND AWAITS
Seamlessly traverse a vast and varied landscape, from lush jungles and treacherous swamps to sun-scorched deserts in your pursuit of The Authority. The wasteland is massive, and youâ€™ve got the arsenal to fight for every inch.
With E3 2018 fast approaching, we’ll no doubt be seeing more of this game soon.
