Just a day after releasing a teaser, the full Rage 2 trailer has indeed hit the web. Bethesda has both iD Software, and Avalanche Studios teaming for this one, and the result is impressive looking. I’m thinking a decent description might be Mad Max on steroids… and possibly some kind of hallucinogen.
Lots to like there for shooter fans. I was firmly in the “we don’t really need a sequel to Rage” camp too, but I might not be now. Honestly, it’s kind of hard not to be excited about this game after seeing that trailer. Everything looks good in this one, including the enemies, the weaponry, and the setting. The graphics are looking sharp as well, defying the wasteland setting from the previous game to produce something colorful and beautifully detailed.
I have to add to, that I’m particularly excited by iD Software’s continued involvement. I kind of assumed tYes, Avalanche has a solid rep, but iD just came off of making one of the best FPS’ in years. To have them getting back into Rage
This trailer and the screens that you see below though, are all you’ll be getting till Bethesda’s E3 showcase. That’ll be on June the 10th, at 6:30pm. As to when the game itself will be hitting platforms, that’s much further off. Rage 2 arrives next spring, in 2019.
In the meantime though, have a peek at the first volley of screens. Looks like Rage 2 is going to be bringing one pretty apocalypse with it.
