Rage 2 Officially Announced With True Open World FPS Experience

As Bethesda promised, today was published albeit short, but still a trailer demonstrating the gameplay and the description of Rage 2, officially announced last night. Punk aesthetic and all. Also, this announcement indicates Rage 2 could be properly open-world, which the first game struggled with. "The game brings together two studio powerhouses-Avalanche Studios, masters of open world mayhem and id Software, gods of the first-person shooter-to deliver a carnival of carnage", Bethesda explains.

The game is set during 2185, where humanity's numbers are dwindling. The wasteland is massive, and you've got the arsenal to fight for every inch. It is up to the player to take on rival gangs and topple The Authority's oppressive rule using unique weapons, tech and vehicles scattered around the world. Because of that, it's imperative to gear up and learn the ropes of who is who in the game of RAGE 2.

While they didn't go into too much detail regarding gameplay and plot, they did outline a few basic facets of, what they refer to as, "a new first-person shooterverse".

In addition to this, the website confirms that RAGE 2 is being developed by Avalanche Studios, the developer behind Mad Max, alongside Id Software. On your quest you'll leave a bloody trail across the badlands, gunning and running down all the teeming hordes of enemies in your wake.

The game will reach PS4, Xbox One and PCs sometime in 2019, with more info expected at Bethesda's E3 event on June 10th.

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. Robbed of his home and left for dead, he now rages for justice and freedom. Well, not to worry as Bethesda has told us that they'll be releasing more information regarding the game tomorrow, May 15, at 10 AM EDT.

According to an accompanying press release, you'll get to visit a variety of post-apocalyptic terrain, "from lush jungles and treacherous swamps to sun-scorched deserts".

Along the way you'll pilot everything from monster trucks to gyrocopters; if you can see it, you can drive it, apparently.
