Bethesda Softworks revealed the first gameplay video of Rage 2, its upcoming open-world FPS by id Software and Avalanche Studios for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
That’s just crazier than the first Rage. Well, you got my attention. I will buy this game over COD and Battlefield. AHHAHAHAHA ! Oh, i’m going to enjoy this.
Avalance (Mad Max) and iD Soft might be a match made in heaven by the looks of it. A game like this is right up my alley, post-apocalyptic raiders on steroids :D Keeping a close eye on this.
FPS genre seems that cannot be evolved further , is repeating itself over over to the level of extreme boredome, ...they are all the same to my eyes
@naruga Still hate Western game, aren’t ya ? Have you hear the game call Doom ? It was over top and bloody and violence. People love it.
@UFC .....i finished DOOM and i almost (almost) platinumed it ..and i liked it a lot ...but that s exact what i msayign -RAGE2 seems like a copy paste of it and doesnt interesting me a lot
I was thinking the same, looks like Mad Max meets Doom, looks like it'll be an absolute blast.
@naruga is that a bad thing ? Doom was awesome game. Rage 2 will have similar like that and l love it. And you know what rage mean ? Extreme anger and insanity. Rage 2 is what mean to be RAGE.
It's exactly what i expected. Mad Max + Just Cause, in RAGE skin. I knew it would be goofy and over the top. I'll still play it but i would've rather seen a proper sequel to RAGE via id. RAGE had a great foundation, it just needed a bigger world and better story. This game looks fun but it feels 100% like an Avalanche game, not an id game. Also, RAGE was a visual stunner yet RAGE 2 does not appear to be. I know people are hyped for RAGE 2, but i was hoping for something different.
@naruga, What is putting me off is the appearance that you have some sort of psionic powers. So its post apocalyptic open world wasteland genetic modification....make up your mind Avalanche. Its almost as if they are throwing everything at the gamer and that isn't always a good thing. I am not saying the game won't be a blast or really good, but that kitchen sink mentality is enough to make me wait and see.
Mad max meets doom meets fallout 4 meets bioshock....
OMG I'm so excited. What the hell is that melee attack he does at 59 seconds? Looks like the Destiny Warlock "force push" kind of melee. I love it. It's really quick before it cuts away, but it looks like the guy hit with it explodes. O_O
You guys seem to be over analyzing the mess outta this trailer. It looks like the first Rage crossed with Mad Max. That sounds pretty good to me, and it looks even better. All this extra stuff you guys are going off on seem to be in your minds. The first Rage had cool weapons but didn't let you play with them enough (limited enemies and levels) IMO, and Mad Max had almost too many things to do and not enough ways to do them. Getting Avalanche on board was a sharp move by Bathesda and I'd, the two teams seem like they'll compliment each other really well.
PS4 and Xbox can’t handle it. PC version the way to go. And you can tell that it was the pc version in trailer cause it was 60 frames.
A fun open world FPS ala Mad Max, Fallout and Just Cause? Where do I sign up??
I agree especially if bad company 3 will have loot box like battlefront 2 progression
Looks alright, but I'm not getting my Hope's up.
ytf does all FPSes move the same exact way? Shoot with right hand, use auxiliary ability with left in obvious way with left hand
Familiarity and ease of picking it up. Some games might benefit from a change in layout or controls, but generally it's a bit of an unnecessary risk.
I'll pick it up if it has co op.
I doubt this will have anything on the next battlefield. Looks good, but battlefield will have a heck of a lot more to do seeing as its multiplayer.
This is an unbelievable change...which was obviously needed Even right down to the boxart...just compare them. Sometimes this kind of stuff works and other times it feels like it came out of nowhere like what Ubisoft did to WatchDogs 2 by suddenly making it light, vibrant, hipster like with a huge boost in colour. I think this could be pretty good and if it is then honestly I think it's time Bethesda got someone to go back to Quake to give that a reboot. Doom did well, Wolfenstein, Rage might so Quake should be next. Only one I think they failed at, in MY opinion as I loved the first original game was Prey...could have made it a new IP it was that different..
I think it'll strike a nice balance. There are some rather grim-looking areas to be seen in the trailer as well, much darker than the first Rage. Im hoping to see more at E3.. but not counting on it
They should definitely revisit Quake.
Yeah man Quake is amazing...I'd love to see what they could cook up for a single player story
Dude, Quake Champions? I've enjoyed the beta. But yea, I'd like to see a story driven one also.
That looks insane. Will get!
DAAYUM!!! id is back!
Well colour me surprised as hell.
I bet those pessimistic turds have changed their minds. This is the 2nd fps this generation that caught my interest after Titanfall.
All this needs is an insane protagonist and boss. I'm intrigued.
I can't simulate what's going on 🤣🤣🤣
anyone else notice it hasnt been announced for the switch :P
Not surprised they were apparently held back by technical limitations with the first game last gen so I didn’t think it would appear on Switch
We're you really expecting it to be announced for the Switch?
i wasnt expecting it on the switch. it was supposed to be a poke at the people saying how powerful the switch is.
@vladstad Who said it is powerful? Everywhere you look (especially on this site) people say the Switch is as powerful as a potato. However, since Bethesda managed to get Doom and Wolfenstein running on the Switch, this game might be possible also.
Wow! this looks insane! Is it running on idtech or the just cause/mad max engine?
I believe it was mentioned to be running on id Tech 6.
Yeah, I was wondering the same, did they confirm this anywhere?
id Tech 6 is very well optimized, we're in for a nice visual treat just like Doom.
Update response: looks like they're going with Avalanche's Apex Engine after all. I apologize for that. Now I'm worried that framerate is going to be sacrificed (save for potential performance modes on upgraded hardware).
wow.. that looks like pure insane fun.
This looks nucking futs!
The best way to avoid a bad language mark on here. ;) Indeed, it does look insane.
It looks crazy good, meow!
I guess we get the release date at E3 then?
I knew they were going to re-imagine the series if they were going to make a sequel. Looks awesome as hell and I'll definitely be giving this a shot.
Looks like a lot of fun!
fool me once. i got fooled by buying the first one and i got nothing but mediocrity and dull and repetitive gameplay. but they never fool me twice. feel free to buy this rehash. just don‘t complain aftetwards that you expected so much more and blahh.
That’s not even close. It looks crazier than first one. ID Software and Avalanche Studio are match made heaven.
I enjoyed the first game. Whatevs
These are entirely different developers taking a bit of a different angle on the game. Why judge the game by the past one made by different developers instead of waiting to see how this one turns out?
Wow this looks awesome!
Okay you know what despite my mixed opinions on the original RAGE I think I might get this.
I'm wondering if they're using the ID tech 5 engine for this?
Looks like a gangbang between Mad Max, Borderlands, Splatoon and RAGE. It looks amazing.
Who is the one being banged?
This looks my kind of GOTY material. INSANE.
The first game was unplayable trash, I'll hold off for now but expectations are very low right now.
I didn’t have the problem with the game on console. But was the first one buggy on PC ?
The game was riddled with bugs, it was very rushed and just not good. Nobody asked for this sequel.
“Nobody asked for this sequel.” Really? Have you been around in other gaming forums?
Anyone can make a cool looking trailer and have the game suck. Heres hoping the game is good and fun to play
Had do adjust my games wanted list with the addition of Atomic Heart & Rage 2.
Mad Max + Bulletstorm + Borderlands = Rage 2 Looks cool but I do how many more open world games I can take. Almost everything is open world now even the next Splinter Cell is rumoured to be open world as well.
and to top it all off avalanche's history with open world games is very mediocre. who is developing this avalanche or ID? as someone who liked the 1st game i am hoping for a great game but avalanche usually takes one step forward and 2 back. they didn't even fix/patch some of the problems in mad max/just cause 3 it was very poorly supported we as gamers get fooled so quickly let's wait for the game to be released they can make any trailer look awesome. I know this for a game to be coming out in 2018 with other heavy hitters this better be great(not just good) otherwise it will be in bargain bin soon after launch they should launch this in early 20189 when this game can get some real media attention not during holiday season when you have so many AAA games getting released
I’m not completely convinced on it after seeing that, but I got a Serious SAM vibe from it which is a good thing. Not too sure about the double jumps & floor smashes though.
That looks fun!
I chose the wrong time to watch this video. Shot some Jim Beam out my nose & I have decided that watching a video of any kind for the first time is a bad idea when drinking liquor & my sinuses burn like hell. Purchased the first Rage on release day & still play it , Rage 2 looks like it'll be another game that is pre-ordered at BestBuy which will get me a 20% discount & able to pick it up on release date.
Pics or it never happened.
