Avalanche Studios and id Software team up for an outrageous post-apocalyptic sequel
Fast-paced first-person action and outrageous vehicle combat come together in the wide-open wasteland of Rage 2, the brainchild of the brilliant minds at id Software and Avalanche Studios.
Armed with an array of devastating weapons and gadgets, plus a host of crazy abilities, you’ll face off against violent factions, monstrous mutants and the oppressive Authority – a returning threat from the first game. Explosions! Neon! Ridiculous vehicles and even more ridiculous guns! Witness all the carnage in our just-released gameplay reveal trailer.
The last ranger
When 80% of the Earth’s population was destroyed by an asteroid, the tyrannical Authority rose up to seek control and every scrap that slipped through their fingers was snatched up by those who remained.
Some survivors fought for what resources they could and banded together in an attempt to rebuild society, but many decided this lawless new world could be a land of opportunity. Bloodthirsty gangs rose up in the chaos and every faction warred to rule this wasteland.
You will play as Walker, the last Ranger. Robbed of your home and left for dead by the Authority, you’ll need to rage for your freedom using every tool at your disposal.
Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons and gear, strange and powerful Nanotrite abilities, and Overdrive, a unique skill that lets you push your guns far beyond their mechanical limits. It’s up to you to crush the oppressive rule of The Authority once and for all!
Lush jungles mix with treacherous swamps and sun-scorched deserts. The wasteland is massive and varied, but you’ve got the arsenal and vehicles needed to fight for every inch.
Pedal to the metal
You’re going to need a way of getting around this huge world, but luckily for you, Rage 2 has a collection of wasteland-ready vehicles. From motorcycles to monster trucks to gyrocopters, you’ll have everything you need to turn the badlands into your personal playground of destruction.
Factions also have their own modes of weaponised transport, so always be on the lookout for a new ride. If you can see it, you can drive it.
Factions and foes
Walker’s road to take down The Authority is going to be a tough one. A rogue’s gallery of monsters, mutants, and madmen await you in the wasteland. Just don’t go into the sewers empty handed.
That’s all for now! Remember to keep a lookout for more information coming at E3!
