We knew RAGE 2 was set to launch at some point next year, but now thanks to The Game Awards 2018 we have an official release date. The event revealed that the game will launch on all supported platforms on May 14th, 2019, with a new “Open World” trailer being revealed that you can check out at the bottom of this post.
The following is a brief snippet on the game from the official Bethesda website:
“Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together two studio powerhouses – Avalanche Studios, masters of open world insanity, and id Software, creators of the first-person shooter – where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.”
The game’s open world is described as “seamless,” and is “full of opportunity for an enterprising Ranger.” While there will be an engaging campaign for players to get immersed, there will also apparently be plenty of side quests to indulge in if you feel like veering off the main path. The game’s entire world is open upon leaving the starting area, so players will have complete freedom to do whatever they want basically from the get-go.
RAGE 2 will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 14th, 2019. Be sure to check out the new “Open World” trailer below.
