Check out the first gameplay trailer for Rage 2

RAGE 2 just released its gameplay trailer, and it perfectly embodies a world where insanity rules. Punk aesthetic and all.

Shown by way of a one minute trailer we're given a quick rundown of the narrative, in a world "devoid of society, law, and order" (yep, checks out).

Bethesda is promising a "carnival of carnage where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything". Humanity's numbers are dwindling, and it's up to you to fight for what's left under the rule of the tyrannical force known as The Authority. Rage 2 follows Walker, the last Ranger of Vineland, as he fights to survive the chaos of the dystopian world into which he was born.

Since Rage 2's listing appeared on Walmart Canada, Bethesda revived the title's official Twitter account to address the leak.


Just as they promised, Bethesda has given a first look at how Rage 2 actually plays and confirmation that id Software is involved. Based on the concept of muscle cars in the desert, Rage was a hit among those who praised the game's incredible technology, fun world, and reliable shooter gameplay. One other really interesting thing about RAGE 2 is its vehicle selection: according to the company's press release, if you see it you can drive it (and consequently use it as an implement of total havoc). Think of it as a sequel to Doom's glory kill system - where you previously received "just" health and ammo, Overdrive also amps your guns' abilities and increases the chances of better rewards from fallen enemies.

With the RAGE 2 ad having been leaked online, we won't have to wait much longer for an official announcement scheduled for later today. "Rage 2" is now scheduled to hit stores in 2019, and will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons and gear, unusual and powerful Nanotrite abilities, and Overdrive, a unique skill that lets you push your guns far beyond their mechanical limits. There are a number of factions fighting for power.
