As promised, Bethesda and Avalanche Studios have released the second Rage 2 announcement trailer. The first one, which appeared on May 14, 2018, was a general announcement with actual actors. The new, almost two minute video focuses entirely on in-game footage showing off different features.
Here is the official description for Rage 2:
“In RAGE 2, you’ll dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. You can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything. 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.
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 Rage 2 footage shows off both human and mutant enemies inhabiting its open world. We get to see how cars, explosives and guns are used as weapons. It seems like the player character, Walker, is able to use technology or a boost from explosions for higher jumps and to hover. It also seems like there may be mech suits of some sort.
Rage 2 is in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
