Rage 2 Gameplay Trailer Showcases Insanity-Fueled Apocalyptic Gaming Glory

Rage 2 Gameplay Trailer Showcases Insanity-Fueled Apocalyptic Gaming Glory

While everyone thought that the leaked announcement of Bethesda's and ID Software's RAGE 2 was fake, it apparently isn't. Bethesda took a refreshing approach to the leak by, instead of refusing to comment, taking to Twitter and making jokes about the leak: Peter Hines, Vice President of Bethesda Softworks, simply said, "This is why we can't have nice things".

Next stop: Sunday, June 10 at 6:30 pm Pacific, when RAGE 2 will blow the roof off Bethesda's #BE3 showcase with a new gameplay reveal and much more.

If you like open-world FPS titles set in a dystopian universe, then Rage 2 looks to be right up your alley (and mine, too).

Looking at the brief gameplay trailer, you can already see the game forming.

Rage 2 will be a collaborative effort. Publisher Bethesda has teamed up with id Software and Avalanche Studios to create an open world shooter that looks like Resdient Evil meets Destiny. Boasting first-person shooter madness and Mad Max-style driving bits, Avalanche will undoubtedly be leveraging its experience with the Just Cause games, and, well, Mad Max, obviously. The year is 2185, you name is Walker and you are the last Ranger of the Vineland.

Microsoft and Amazon show Alexa-Cortana integrations for first time
For instance, you can invoke Google Assistant by saying "Ok Google" or "Hey Google" but the same does not happen in Alexa's case. It is the first known portfolio of podcasts to be made simultaneously available on both Alexa and Google Assistant in the UK.


Don't expect to be playing Rage 2 this year however, as Bethesda have confirmed that it will be out in 2019. Robbed of his home and left for dead, he now rages for justice and freedom.

We're not sure whether Rage 2 will continue the storyline from the first game, but it does seem to have a similar setup. You must fight the overbearing rule of The Authority, kill the insane gangs, and bring sanity back to the wasteland. As Walker in RAGE 2, you also will learn how to channel Nanotrites into weapons and push them into Overdrive to unleash unrelenting hell.

Interestingly, in combination with all the upgradable weapons you can spot in this trailer, you'll also be able to crank up the rampage using a collection of powers called Nanotrites.

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