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.
Quickie video game history lesson: back in 2009, publisher Bethesda Softworks’ parent company ZeniMax Media acquired id Software and brought them into their stable of game developers. The company was responsible for the creation of the modern first-person shooter genre with titles like Wolfenstein 3D, DOOM, and Quake. Back in 2014, the Wolfenstein franchise was resurrected with Wolfenstein: The New Order (developed by MachineGames). Then, just last month, came the return of DOOM, with id handling development themselves.
Now the third id Software classic has officially found new life. During Bethesda’s E3 2016 presentation Quake Champions, which is also developed by id, was announced with a cinematic reveal trailer that you can check out below.
