After a leaked image of a RAGE 2 posting at Walmart, followed by a week of teasing from Bethesda’s Twitter, RAGE 2 was finally confirmed yesterday. This initial trailer was live action and really only served to confirm the existence of the game, providing very little real details about it. However, following through on their promise, a gameplay trailer went live today for Bethesda’s upcoming first-person shooter.
Here it is:
The sequel is a joint effort between developers id Software and Avalanche Studios. From the description:
In the year 2185, humanity’s numbers are dwindling. Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule who remains with an iron fist. You are Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland. Robbed of your home and left for dead, you’ll tear across an unforgiving wasteland battling bloodthirsty gangs to find the tools and tech needed to take the fight to The Authority and crush their oppressive rule once and for all!
The announcement of RAGE 2 is certainly surprising. The first game released in 2011, and public talks of a sequel only arose within the past few weeks after the leaked Walmart posting. Still, it will be interesting to see how they plan to build on the universe of the apocalyptic, fast-paced shooter.
RAGE 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
