'Rage 2' (ALL) Gets Release Date, Open World Details - Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 7, 2018 @ 2:05 a.m. PST

Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. Rage 2 brings together a true open world FPS experience where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.

Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together two studio powerhouses — Avalanche Studios, masters of open world insanity, and id Software, the gods of the first-person shooter — to deliver a carnival of carnage where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.

An asteroid has annihilated 80% of the earth's population, and humanity's numbers are dwindling. Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule with an iron fist. As Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland and a threat to their power, you have been robbed of your home and left for dead. Now you'll have to rage for justice and freedom. With ludicrous vehicle combat, super-powered first-person mayhem, and an open world full of emergent madness, you will tear across an unforgiving wasteland battling sadistic gangs to find the tools and tech needed to crush the oppressive rule of The Authority once and for all.


The latest trailer for RAGE 2 showcases the massive open world, multiple biomes, soaring gyrocopters, crushing monster trucks, big-ass guns, Mutant Bash TV mayhem, a taste of some serious Faction-action … ya, it was a panoply of pure pandemonium.

The seamless open world of RAGE 2 is full of opportunity for an enterprising Ranger. Any time you want to veer off the main path, you’ll find a lot to explore.

“Once you leave the starting area, the entire world is open, and you’ll encounter dynamic events everywhere you go,” says Willits. “You may find a bandit outpost to clear out, or a race you want to run, or a convoy that needs destroying. Completing these types of activities will also help your relationship with some of the key characters in the main story. Everything you do will be rewarded.”

The Torn Plains Racetrack is heaven for speed demons and adrenaline junkies. Win different cars by racing on the curvy, multi-path tracks, riddled with jumps and hazards. You can also come across drivers anywhere in the wasteland and challenge them to a quick pick-up race. The starting and ending points for a pick-up race are based on where the race is initiated, so no two courses are the same.

Convoys are massive, heavily defended fortresses on wheels; they’ll require skillful driving and all your combat expertise to take them down. Convoys consist of a monstrous leader that is protected by a number of different vehicles, from fast attack bikes to medium-sized muscle cars, all armed to the brim and ready to tear you to pieces. Both the Immortal Shrouded and the Goon Squad have their own convoys with unique faction vehicles that patrol different areas of the world.

Face off against wave after wave of progressively more challenging enemies in the Mutant Bash arena to win prizes and wasteland fame. Now hosted by a woman named Desdemonya, this new Mutant Bash TV is crueller and more twisted than ever before. Be sure to stock up on ammo, grenades and Wingsticks before you attempt Mutant Bash. There’s a resupply phase between waves, but it’s just barely enough to keep you in the fight.

Locating Arks is your key to upgrading Walker with new gear and nanotrite abilities, but not all of them are easy to find. Some you’ll discover through missions, and some you’ll locate by gathering valuable intel around the wasteland. Talk to folks in town and keep an eye out for data pads or audio recordings that might hold some useful information.

Your allies in the wasteland are going to have plenty of work for you. Go back to them often to see if they have additional quests (with additional rewards, of course).

Feel like doing a little hunting? Some of the hub cities will have bounties you can pick up. Hunt down your target and take them out for a sweet prize. There’s no “dead or alive” in the post-post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Just because you’re saving the world doesn’t mean you can’t help the little guys. While cruising around the wasteland, you may come across someone getting chased by a group of bandit vehicles. Should you manage to get all the attacking cars off the civilian’s tail, you’ll be roundly rewarded.

With their unrivaled control of the skies, the Authority can strike at any time, anywhere in the wasteland. Incoming Authority aircraft are capable of dropping both troopers and Sentry Turrets, which should be avoided at all cost until you’ve got enough firepower to wipe out a small town.

“I like to say that RAGE 2 has a high ‘distraction factor’ when playing,” jokes Willits. “I often get sidetracked by something as I drive past, or something happens dynamically in the world. I find that I can spend hours just driving around or flying. I really enjoy the Icarus mini-copter the best. It’s an amazing way to see all the sights. One of the cool things about the Icarus is that it’s a reward for people who explore. It isn’t found on the ‘golden path’ of the game. It’s not just given to you, you need to earn it. But once you have the Icarus, the whole game opens up to you in a new, exciting way.”

Key Features:

  • WELCOME TO THE SHOOTERVERSE: id Software's shooter pedigree and Avalanche Studios' open world prowess is dream-team-made-real for RAGE 2. It's more than a shooter, more than an open world game — it's a shooterverse.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Head to the wasteland for pure pandemonium as Rage 2 is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 14, 2019.
