[RAGE 2] appears to be a definite shift in tone from the original
I actually liked RAGE for what it was, despite all of it's flaws. I even did a video for my very first YouTube channel showing people how to get the Passive Aggressive, Keep 'em Coming, and Bringing Home the Bacon achievements all together in the Mutant Bash on Nightmare difficulty. I thought it was a fun game that had a lot of that old world Id studios charm that I grew up with. Having said that, the game definitely had it's problems and wasn't received particularly well. It was set up for a sequel, but I never expected one to come. BUT THEN THIS HAPPENED.
RAGE 2 is a post-apocalyptic open world first-person shooter in development by Id Software with the help of Avalanche Studios. It was announced by Bethesda Softworks on May 14, 2018 as a sequel to the first hit sci-fi first-person shooter racing game RAGE, released in October of 2011. On May 15, the following day, a Gameplay Trailer was released.
The game is set in 2185, far after the events of the first game, where we play as Walker, one of the last Rangers in the wasteland, which had his home robbed and taken by the Authority, the primary antagonists of the first game, and Walker tears through the Wasteland to seek vengeance and to end the Authority's oppression. Not much is known about the gameplay however, despite the gameplay trailer having been released, but it is clear many elements will be returning, including more heavily customizable Vehicle Combat, Wingsticks, and Mutants, and possibly, wider customization of guns.
RAGE 2 will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the Spring of 2019. It was announced on May 15, 2018 that pre-order bonuses will include a unique mission called "Cult of the Death God", the "Settlers Pistol" from the original RAGE, "Nicholas Raine Armor", and a Monster Truck for use within the game.
Here's the official gameplay trailer. I don't hate it. To be honest, it looks fun. But it's definitely a tonal departure from the original, and I'm not sure how I feel about that yet. On the one hand, yeah, they probably did need to change things up because the original went nowhere in particular. But on the other hand, this just looks like a hodge-podge of a million other games. It looks like a different flavor of Borderlands, I think:
