Following the gameplay reveal of Rage 2, Bethesda followed up with the first screenshots and a release window for the upcoming open-world first-person-shooter by Avalanhe Studios and id Software.

Funnily, the press release mentions that this is an “AAAAAA” game because it involves two AAA developers. Cheeky Bethesda.

The game will launch in 2019, so there is plenty of time to get to see more, but we already know that a brand new trailer and “much more” will come at E3 2018.

One thing is for sure: the game has a very distinctive art style, and the graphics are definitely top-notch.

We also get a few more tidbits of info:

THE LAST RANGER

Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons, devastating Nanotrite powers, and Overdrive, the ability to push your guns beyond their mechanical limits.

PEDAL TO THE METAL

From monster trucks to gyrocopters, use an assortment of rugged and wasteland-ready vehicles to speed across the badlands. If you see it, you can drive it.

FACTIONS & FOES

Fight against ferocious factions for control of the wasteland, each featuring a rogue’s gallery of madmen, mutants, and monsters hungry for blood.

THE WASTELAND AWAITS

Seamlessly traverse a vast and varied landscape, from lush jungles and treacherous swamps to sun-scorched deserts in your pursuit of The Authority. The wasteland is massive, and you’ve got the arsenal to fight for every inch.

You can check out the screenshots 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 besides the 2019 window, but we know that it will come for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
