Avalanche Studios and id Software team up for an outrageous post-apocalyptic sequel


Fast-paced first-person action and outrageous vehicle combat come together in the wide-open wasteland of Rage 2, the brainchild of the brilliant minds at id Software and Avalanche Studios.

Armed with an array of devastating weapons and gadgets, plus a host of crazy abilities, you’ll face off against violent factions, monstrous mutants and the oppressive Authority – a returning threat from the first game. Explosions! Neon! Ridiculous vehicles and even more ridiculous guns! Witness all the carnage in our just-released gameplay reveal trailer.

The last ranger
When 80% of the Earth’s population was destroyed by an asteroid, the tyrannical Authority rose up to seek control and every scrap that slipped through their fingers was snatched up by those who remained.

Some survivors fought for what resources they could and banded together in an attempt to rebuild society, but many decided this lawless new world could be a land of opportunity. Bloodthirsty gangs rose up in the chaos and every faction warred to rule this wasteland.

You will play as Walker, the last Ranger. Robbed of your home and left for dead by the Authority, you’ll need to rage for your freedom using every tool at your disposal.

Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons and gear, strange and powerful Nanotrite abilities, and Overdrive, a unique skill that lets you push your guns far beyond their mechanical limits. It’s up to you to crush the oppressive rule of The Authority once and for all!



Lush jungles mix with treacherous swamps and sun-scorched deserts. The wasteland is massive and varied, but you’ve got the arsenal and vehicles needed to fight for every inch.



Pedal to the metal
You’re going to need a way of getting around this huge world, but luckily for you, Rage 2 has a collection of wasteland-ready vehicles. From motorcycles to monster trucks to gyrocopters, you’ll have everything you need to turn the badlands into your personal playground of destruction.

Factions also have their own modes of weaponised transport, so always be on the lookout for a new ride. If you can see it, you can drive it.



Factions and foes
Walker’s road to take down The Authority is going to be a tough one. A rogue’s gallery of monsters, mutants, and madmen await you in the wasteland. Just don’t go into the sewers empty handed.



That’s all for now! Remember to keep a lookout for more information coming at E3!

Rage 2 PS4 release date confirmed – watch the new trailer
Prepare for open-world mayhem in Bethesda's upcoming all-action sequel

The wasteland of Rage 2 is your playground – your very bloody playground – and in a world where there are no rules, insanity rules. Go anywhere, shoot anything, explode everything. Rage 2 will be available on PlayStation 4 from 14th May 2019. Get a fresh look at the chaotic and crazy world in the latest trailer.


Open-world mayhem
The seamless open world of Rage 2 is full of opportunity for an enterprising Ranger. Any time you want to veer off the main path, you’ll find a lot to explore. As id Software Studio Director Tim Willits explains, there’s never a dull moment when you’re prowling the wasteland.

“Once you leave the starting area, the entire world is open, and you’ll encounter dynamic events everywhere you go,” says Willits. “You may find a bandit outpost to clear out, or a race you want to run, or a convoy that needs destroying. Completing these types of activities will also help your relationship with some of the key characters in the main story. Everything you do will be rewarded.”

Races
The Torn Plains Racetrack is heaven for speed demons and adrenaline junkies. Win different cars by racing on the curvy, multi-path tracks, riddled with jumps and hazards. You can also come across drivers anywhere in the wasteland and challenge them to a quick pick-up race. The starting and ending points for a pick-up race are based on where the race is initiated, so no two courses are the same.



Convoys
Convoys are massive, heavily defended fortresses on wheels; they’ll require skilful driving and all your combat expertise to take them down. Convoys consist of a monstrous leader that is protected by a number of different vehicles, from fast attack bikes to medium-sized muscle cars, all armed to the brim and ready to tear you to pieces. Both the Immortal Shrouded and the Goon Squad have their own convoys with unique faction vehicles that patrol different areas of the world.

Mutant Bash
Face off against wave after wave of progressively more challenging enemies in the Mutant Bash arena to win prizes and wasteland fame. Now hosted by a woman named Desdemonya, this new Mutant Bash TV is more twisted and cruel than ever before. Be sure to stock up on ammo, grenades and Wingsticks before you attempt Mutant Bash. There’s a resupply phase between waves, but it’s just barely enough to keep you in the fight.



Ark hunting
Locating Arks is your key to upgrading Walker with new gear and nanotrite abilities, but not all of them are easy to find. Some you’ll discover through missions, and some you’ll locate by gathering valuable intel around the wasteland. Talk to folks in town and keep an eye out for data pads or audio recordings that might hold some useful information.

Helping out allies
Your allies in the wasteland are going to have plenty of work for you. Go back to them often to see if they have additional quests (with additional rewards, of course).



Bounties
Feel like doing a little hunting? Some of the hub cities will have bounties you can pick up. Hunt down your target and take them out for a sweet prize. There’s no “dead or alive” in the post-post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Saving friendly drivers
Just because you’re saving the world doesn’t mean you can’t help the little guys. While cruising around the wasteland, you may come across someone getting chased by a group of bandit vehicles. Should you manage to get all the attacking cars off the civilian’s tail, you’ll be roundly rewarded.



Authority attacks
With their unrivalled control of the skies, the Authority can strike at any time, anywhere in the wasteland. Incoming Authority aircraft are capable of dropping both troopers and Sentry Turrets, which should be avoided at all cost until you’ve got enough firepower to wipe out a small town.

Create your own chaos
“I like to say that Rage 2 has a high ‘distraction factor’ when playing,” jokes Willits. “I often get sidetracked by something as I drive past, or something happens dynamically in the world. I find that I can spend hours just driving around or flying. I really enjoy the Icarus mini-copter the best. It’s an amazing way to see all the sights. One of the cool things about the Icarus is that it’s a reward for people who explore. It isn’t found on the ‘golden path’ of the game. It’s not just given to you, you need to earn it. But once you have the Icarus, the whole game opens up to you in a new, exciting way.”

Rage 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 – 14th May, 2019. Pre-order to receive the exclusive Cult of the Death God mission and don Nicholas Raine’s legendary armor and Settler Pistol. The RAGE 2 Collector’s Edition is also available for pre-order. Get the full breakdown of all the included goodies here: RAGE 2 Collector’s Edition & Deluxe Edition.
