As promised yesterday, Bethesda released the first gameplay of its upcoming open-world first-person shooter Rage 2.
The video shows pretty much what you could expect from the game, which is co-developed by id Software and Avalanche Studios, and that means tons of shooting action and destruction.
We also get a look at plenty vehicles, mecha, and traversal. It’s mayhem. As a bonus, we also get a small story introduction:
“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 game is certainly promising, even if its tone has shifted quite visibly from its predecessor released in 2011. I, for one, am definitely interested in seeing what the collaboration with Avalanche will give birth to.
You can check out the video below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy yesterday’s colorful teaser trailer.
At the moment, the game doesn’t have a specific release date, but we know that it will come for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
