"Rage 2" Video Game Trailer Highlights Savage Action & Brutal Villains

16 May 2018

We'll likely be getting some more details at E3 next month but so far, we've had one live action teaser, and a second gameplay trailer. Judging by platform support from the first Rage game back in 2011, we predict that Rage 2 will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Rage 2 is happening, we learned for certain yesterday, with Doom masterminds id Software and Just Cause and Max Max developer Avalanche Studios at its helm.

The world first learned of "Rage 2's" existence last week when pre-order info supposedly appeared on the Walmart Canada website for it and various other unannounced titles like "Gears of War 5", "Borderlands 3", and "Lego DC Villains". From the swamplands and jungles where enemies lurk among the dense foliage, to the open deserts where a passing vehicle is more likely to mow you down than offer you a ride, the world of Rage 2 is not a gentle, nurturing place.

What's really interesting, though, is that Avalanche Studios is working on Rage 2 alongside id Software. This week it has all been confirmed and today we have a new gameplay trailer.

"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". While it is hard to draw a conclusion from just this one series of scenes, the clip immediately shows that Rage 2 has more character and tries to be more charming than its predecessor.

We've got a lot more to show you from RAGE 2. But barring some colossal screw-up in development, Rage 2's gunplay will be incredible. This is a game, at least we hope, that demands creativity. As Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland and a threat to their power, you have been robbed of your home and left for dead.

However, just because Rage 2 will not feature loot boxes doesn't mean that the game will not feature microtransactions, another business model that has also been criticized by some.
