'Rage 2' (ALL) Details Upcoming Content, Teases Rise of the Ghosts Expansion - Screens & Trailer

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.


What’s that coming up on the horizon for RAGE 2?

Oh, that’s right. It’s a bunch of awesome free shit, including new vehicles like the pilotable Mech and the one-wheeled Armadillo, new dynamic events, new Cheats, and so. Much. More. Now, you might be thinking to yourself, “Wow. Why are they giving all this stuff away for free?” That’s a stupid question. It’s because we just love you guys, like, so much. We would give you the moon if that weren’t such a stupid gift. Seriously, where would you keep a moon? That’s not a present; it’s a responsibility.

Here’s everything you’ll have access to over the next month:

  • Pilotable Mech “Boom Bringer” vehicle – Mechs aren’t just for the River Hogs anymore. Hop into the new Boom Bringer Mech and…. Well, bring the boom. And the explosions. And the mindboggling amounts of pain.
  • Global Worming dynamic event – Aside from having a really excellent name, the Global Worming event introduces the Sand Worm, a massive new enemy that will require all your Ranger skills to take down.
  • Bug Swarm dynamic event – Don’t you love leaving your house in the warmer months and immediately being assaulted by millions of flying insects? Yeah, neither do we. Let’s kill all those little bastards.
  • One-wheeled “Armadillo” vehicle – The name is cute, and if you ask us, the vehicle is pretty cute, too. Cute in an “Oh god, it’s coming this way and it’s not slowing down and it’s going to run right over me” kind of way. So maybe not that cute. Definitely rad, though. (Did you know that armadillos can transmit leprosy to humans? So cute!)
  • “Ghost” motorcycle – Be the edgiest kid in the wasteland with the new Ghost motorcycle. A hint of what’s to come in the upcoming Rise of the Ghosts expansion, perhaps?
  • Stanley Express missions – Visit key locations around the map and find Stanley, an excellent source of missions and a machine-shaped friend.
  • New Cheats – Get the TV fatal and OzzyMan voice packs, the Rejector Seat Cheat, and more!
  • New weapon skins
  • New Daily Events
  • New Wasteland Challenges and Community Events

The trailer also teased the Rise of the Ghosts expansion, which is coming later this year. This huge expansion will add an entirely new questline, region to explore, and faction to the game, in addition to a new weapon and ability to add to your already impressive arsenal.

The teams at Avalanche and id Software have been listening to your comments and feedback and are also working on new difficulty modes and a New Game+ mode, and we’ll have more on that in the coming weeks.

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.
