RAGE 2 Gets its First Gameplay Trailer, where Insanity rules the World

Prior to the official announcement, nearly everyone was saying it was Rage 2, and it turns out they were right.

Weeks before its annual E3 press event, Bethesda has released the first gameplay trailer for Rage 2.

Fans had found out that a sequel was in the works thanks to a major leak from Walmart Canada last week.

And yesterday the official Rage Twitter account tweeted: "C:DesktopVideosAnnounceTrailerMonday".

Unfortunately, that's all the info we have for now, but it's certainly enough to get me excited for a game I had no previous interest in. If that is happening then it will probably be after its official release on the other platforms since Switch ports are time demanding. This is a studio with a long pedigree of creating open-world shooters with plenty of action and things to do.

Watching the Rage 2 trailer will definitely give you the Mad Max vibe, since the series has taken quite some inspiration from George _'s popular series of films.

With E3 2018 coming up fast, it's likely that we'll get more information on the Rage 2 release date, so check back soon for the latest release date news. You can listen to it via Apple Podcasts or RSS, or just listen to this week's episode by hitting the play button below.

The trailer below showcases the kind of madness you can expect from the game. "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".

It seems the information about the sequel's developers was not meant to be revealed today, however. In the video we see the rampant insanity in a post-apocalyptic world where no law, no order, no society as such.

Looking at the brief gameplay trailer, you can already see the game forming.

RAGE 2 gains inspiration from both its predecessor and Mad Max and it shows. Walker will have an assortment of weapons at his disposal, which will be upgradeable. Nanotrite and Overdrive abilities will be also available, adding more fluff to its otherwise raw fights. While it is hard to draw a conclusion from just this one series of scenes, the clip immediately shows that Rage 2 has more character and tries to be more charming than its predecessor.
