With the announcement came the opening of the game's official website, which offers us more information on what to expect from the sequel to 2010's post-apocalyptic adventure. If not, this shooter might just be a flop before it is ever released.
We also get a look at plenty vehicles, mecha, and traversal.
"That's right, this is a f****ing AAAAAA game". In a world of cookie-cutter sequels, it proved to be a refreshing new idea with plenty of heart.
It looks like we don't have very long until we find out what Rage 2 gameplay will be like! The short trailer is filled with a colourful cast of characters that do everything from vape to pouring energy drinks into their eyes.
The first trailer features a much more colorful aesthetic compared to the original Rage. From sentry guns to murderous boomerangs and that satisfying shotgun, there was no shortage of fun weapons and ammo types to use.
This game will no doubt take the stage during Bethesda's E3 conference. With Avalanche Studios involved it's not too hard to imagine third-person gameplay and a wider, vibrant open-world with explosions galore akin to its work on the Just Cause series. That said, I'm wondering if they'll be sticking to the same game engine or switching it out to the IDTech 6 engine that powered DOOM (2016), and Wolfenstein II games.
"Now you'll have to rage for justice and freedom", says Bethesda in a statement. If getting around a huge map isn't enjoyable then you will undoubtedly grow frustrated with an open-world after all.
Regardless, it's freakish. I'm hoping to be won over-after all, Bethesda has a habit recently of taking properties I don't much care about anymore and spinning them into gold (Doom, Prey, Wolfenstein). Unfortunately, it doesn't showcase any gameplay, but that's just around the corner.
Update: Turns out we didn't have to wait for E3 or even tomorrow.
