General Gaming RAGE 2 - Information Thread, update: "Everything vs. Me" and "Weapons & Abilities" trailers

Recommended Posts

Hey is this game going to have any kind of multiplayer? I plan on replaying the first game shortly before this one comes out. I remember enjoying it more than most.

None at all (so far)

Michael Huber recently got some more time with Rage 2 and he comes back to share his thoughts on this frenetic open world shooter.

Rage 2 is the mutant spawn of two very different shooters (Polygon)

The sequel to Rage feels stretched between an id-style shooter and chaotic, open-world adventure

 

Rage 2 has id-quality shooting, but I wish the world had more personality (PC Gamer)

It's more ridiculous than Rage, but does it go far enough?

 

Rage 2's Vehicle Combat Needs Some Tuning, but is Already Producing Wild Gameplay Sequences (USgamer)

We talk to the game's developers about what largely feels like a secondary concern at the moment.

 

Rage 2’s wasteland is colourful, but lacks personality (PCGamesN)

Doom's combat is hidden below the surface of Rage 2, but it's smothered by the open world that surrounds it

 

So Rage 2 has absolutely lost it: gyrating elderly ladies, sausage helmets, and blonde-quiffed mutants await you (GamesRadar)

Why play Rage 2? Id has plenty of reasons waiting for you in the post-apocalypse

 

Rage 2 Makes You An Unstoppable Superhero--When You're Not Busy Driving (Gamespot)

It definitely shoots like an id Software game.

 

I played Rage 2 and it's a vibrant kick-ass post-Apocalypse (COGConnected)

The Makers of Mad Max and DOOM Do Not Disappoint

 

Rage 2: id’s shooting is fine, but this pink apocalypse feels overfamiliar (VG247)

Rage 2’s pink-apoca-party looks like a lot of fun from a distance. But it all hangs on id’s shooting, which is usually great in the controlled space of something like Doom. But I don’t know if there’s much of an appetite for it during an open world full of lukewarm takes on the average action shooter. 

 

‘Rage 2’ Offers More than just Fallout From the Borderlands (Fandom)

Hands-on with Mutant Bash TV, Chazcar Derby racing and more.

This game looks like a massive improvement over the first. Huber mentioned that you can complete objectives without having to talk to the quest giver in advance, which is excellent.

I don't get the whole "world lacks personality" comment. How much personality do you need? Do you want the trees to sing and dance for you? 

 

I'm sorry, but when I walk outside and look around, I don't see a lot of personality. Not that I don't think games should have some kind of feel to the environments, but I honestly don't understand what critics are expecting to see. Disney World maybe?

A lethal dance-off for a sweet new ability, a high-flying trip over a hostile open world, a fight against a very angry man in a mech suit… RAGE 2 has it all in this brand new extended gameplay video.  Don’t miss the ending for a sneak peek at what’s coming next!

You’re not just Walker, the last Ranger. You’re a Wasteland Superhero!

 

Using your arsenal of powerful weapons and hi-tech nanotrite abilities, you’re going to wreak havoc on the baddies lurking throughout RAGE 2. While they are super powerful on their own, you’ll get maximum damage by pairing those weapons and abilities for crazy combos that will knock the socks off* (*absolutely obliterate) anyone that stands in your way. The Authority doesn’t stand a chance!

 

See some of those combinations in action in our latest video!

 

RAGE 2 will be available on May 14, 2019.

Fucking Christ yes! This at least looks like the most fun single player shooter I've seen in some time! Please don't let me down now!

So I was originally excited about Borderlands 3...but for some reason this has surpassed that as my likely choice of next shooter I will buy. But I've heard that Rage 1 was kind of bad. Is this true? This seems like a weird cross between Doom and Borderlands, is that a good comparison?

I was pretty hyped for this until I found it its Single Player only.  Now I'll probably pass on it.

 

The difference from Borderlands, as far as I know, is that Borderlands is a loot game with random gear rolls, where as this game will have set guns more similar with a Doom game.  

 

I haven't followed it much though so I maybe wrong.

Single Player only Blasphemy in todays gaming scene.  I may still get it but I was looking forward to multiplayer car battles

Rage 1 wasn't bad... it just came out right around the same time as Fallout 3 and people were expecting it to be more of an RPG than it was. It was fine.

Bethesda and Walmart Canada have decided to have some fun with Walmart's leak of RAGE 2 prior to E3 last year.

 

This was the RAGE 2 twitter account after the leak:
