Well, this is unexpected but it was already known as last week, Walmart Canada outed RAGE 2 in their listing. Back in 2010, the original RAGE was released to mediocre reactions which made this sequel a bit of a surprise to everyone. RAGE was best known for mashing elements of the FPS genre with lots of driving elements, basically Mad Max. It was also the last game to be headed by John Carmack, who went on to seek out new experiences with the Oculus Rift.
E3 is very soon, which means there’s alot of announcements coming in these next couple weeks as we ramp up towards this momentous moment each and every year in the gaming industry. Bethesda announced RAGE 2 today , a sequel that came as a surprise but not really. The announcement doesn’t show gameplay footage which will come tomorrow and I’ll do a full breakdown on it. Bethesda Softworks released a synopsis on what the game is about:
“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.”
There is no release date set but expect it this fall, it looks like this fall will be extra cramped outside of the usual suspects. Stay tuned tomorrow for a breakdown of the gameplay footage, I hope RAGE 2 ups the original game.
