And yesterday the official Rage Twitter account tweeted: "C:DesktopVideosAnnounceTrailerMonday". It also shed a bit more light on the story behind the game in a blog post this morning and peppered it with a few screenshots. We can't imagine Bethesda would want to ape that forgotten title, but we do see the similarities. Here's a just under two-minute taste of Rage 2 gameplay.
Which platforms will Rage 2 be released on?
However, retailer Amazon also separately confirmed that there will be a pre-order bonus: an exclusive mission, a vehicle, a pistol and an armor piece. You may know Avalanche Studios as creators of the Just Cause series or as the developers behind Mad Max. Right now, we don't have very many details about what this sequel contains. Like the first game, it's another open world, post-apocalyptic adventure, but this time around it's being made by Avalanche Studios and id Software.
The Rage 2 footage shows off both human and mutant enemies inhabiting its open world. Meaning that the leak of not only this game but several more by Walmart could actually be legit. That being said, this first look at the gameplay makes me think it has potential to be the sequel we didn't think we needed.
We will play for Walker, the last Ranger of the Badlands, which is a hard path of struggle against oppressive Government.
The asteroid mentioned in the trailer has resulted in Earth's population being reduced by 80 percent, and the "Authority" organization has attempted to take control. There are a number of factions fighting for power.
Taking on the role of Walker, the last ranger of the wasteland who has lost his home and has been left for dead, players will be tasked with bringing down the Authority and their oppressive regime.
It seems the information about the sequel's developers was not meant to be revealed today, however. Rage 2 most definitely looks awesome, and we're looking forward to it.
Along the way you'll pilot everything from monster trucks to gyrocopters; if you can see it, you can drive it, apparently.
What should I expect from Rage 2 gameplay? It is argued that with proper use neotricula abilities, Walker is able to emerge victorious from even a hopeless fight.
