The first gameplay trailer for Rage 2 is here, and it looks absolutely insane. Publisher Bethesda has teamed up with id Software and Avalanche Studios to create an open world shooter that looks like Resdient Evil meets Destiny. Creepy looking creatures walk around with hideous intruments fitted to their body while the main character uses a combination of guns and powers to defeat his foes. The game is based on a post-apocalyptic Earth where an asteroid kills most of the population. Gangs have taken control, leaving the world to run something like it did in Mad Max. The main character, Walker, is on a revenge quest to hunt down the men that left him for dead. The official game synopsis goes as follows:
“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!”
While Rage 2 has no official release date, it is expected to hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2019.
