  • Rage 2 Gets Release Window in 2019, First Screenshots, and More info on Vehicles and Gameplay

As promised, Bethesda has released the first gameplay footage for RAGE 2, and you know what? Players assume the role of Walker, the last Ranger of the dystopian wasteland left behind and the only threat to the Authority's power.

Thankfully you don't have too long to wait until you can get involved in the mayhem, as Rage 2's release date is set for, well, sometime in 2019 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

The first Rage game released was for iOS.

Digging deeper into Bethesda's updated site, its Rage 2 page reveals that the upcoming sequel is "developed in association with Avalanche Studios, trading as Fatalist Entertainment AB", thanks to Resetra user Stygr. Given their expertise with open-world games, we can assume Rage 2's world will be vast and full of interesting activities to partake in. The first official gameplay trailer arrived with a burst of neon, guns, mohawks and our favourite, weird weapon, the wingstick. With Avalanche's involvement and Doom-like elements, Rage 2 might help the franchise live up to its potential.




Bethesda revealed that the game will give users a true open world FPS experience.

We're also impressed by just how many enemies seem to be on screen at a time, especially given it is an open world game with vehicles. Perhaps a smart move considering the number of massive games out towards the end of the year such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2. In the video we see the rampant insanity in a post-apocalyptic world where no law, no order, no society as such. The remaining humans form gangs, while the Authority tries to "rule with an iron fist". "You see, in a world where there are no rules, insanity rules".

Even if RAGE 2 isn't the primary focus of Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference, you would expect that the publisher will still be making a big song and dance about the game.
