Rage 2 Launch Date Announce, New Trailer Flaunting Its Open World Also Revealed

At the Game Awards, Bethesda, Avalanche Studios, and id Software are bringing Rage 2 to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on May 14, 2019.

During the Game Awards, Bethesda and Avalanche Studios revealed Rage 2 will be blasting to Xbox One, PS4, and PC near you on May 14, 2019.

A trailer was also revealed and continues to exemplify the goofy tone previous footage have shown. While it shows off new gameplay, the real focus here is the game’s world. From Mutant Bash TV’s return to Wellspring’s colorful makeover, we are starting to get an idea of what Rage 2‘s wasteland holds.

It was no surprise this trailer was revealed. Earlier this week, Bethesda gave a little tease of the trailer via the official Rage Twitter account.

Speaking of little teases, Rage 2‘s existence was outed back in May thanks to the infamous Walmart Canada leak prior to this year’s E3. The retail listing showed a slew of unannounced titles; some of which, like Gears of War 5, did get revealed at E3 while some, like Splinter Cell, did not. After the leak, the official Rage Twitter account jokingly made some notes over the listing.

After the leak and a series of teases, Rage 2 was officially revealed alongside an announce trailer. Shortly after, the first gameplay trailer was shown flaunting the game’s fast-paced shooting and powerful special abilities. I had some hands-on time with the game during E3 where I said, “the base mechanics of Rage 2 feel just as good as Doom. The fast-paced shooting and feeling of power are reminiscent of the 2016 reboot with a few, fundamental differences that make this unexpected sequel unique.”
