Since E3 2018, publisher Bethesda has been teasing fans with chaotic game trailers, screenshots and lively details on their upcoming sequel, RAGE 2. However, Avalanche Studios and id Software have still been able to keep much of the game under wraps. That is, until now.

In an extensive round-up from Game Informer, RAGE 2 has let loose many details on the follow-up to 2010’s post-apocalyptic FPS title. While The Game Awards earlier this week provided a deeper look at the game – as well as a set release date – with a brand-new open-world trailer, there’s still loads of information about the upcoming carnage inducing shooter we’re still uncovering.

Earlier this year, Bethesda shared with fans that the game was being co-developed by the developers of the original RAGE, id Software, and the Just Cause/Mad Max dev team, Avalanche Studios. The game follows along the same path of mayhem set forth in the debut title, with returning weapons like the bloody dangerous wingstick.

However, there is a brand-new firearm that will be making its debut in RAGE 2, and that’s the coveted gravity gun. Traditionally used in the iconic shooter, Half-Life 2, RAGE 2 will have its own twist on the uniquely devastating weapon. Tagged enemies are catapulted into whatever objects the player is aiming at when firing off the secondary trigger, resulting in some pretty gory kills.

The inclusion of the brutal gravity gun is a nice bonus bit of info to keep us eagerly awaiting the 2019 release date, but there is some rather unfortunate news, as well. Regarding the game’s multiplayer mode: well, there isn’t any.

Long-time RAGE fans will remember the various online modes found in the first title, however, the development teams behind the sequel currently have no intention of taking the sequel outside of the single player campaign. For anyone looking to scratch that co-op post-apocalyptic itch while waiting for Borderlands 3, you won’t find it in RAGE 2.

Also, the story in RAGE 2 stands alone as a completely solitary experience inviting newcomers to join in on what the second installment in the series has to offer. References to the first game will be made, sure, but players won’t miss anything important in the story if they missed the series the first time around.

But for those who have indulged themselves in the debut release in the series, the sequel looks to correct the mistakes that held the game back in 2010. The vast open world will now be free to explore after the credits roll, an applauded decision in relation to the first game’s awkward closure and the crooked ruling of eliminating players from exploring the world post-game.

RAGE 2 is slated for release on May 14th, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Until then, check back for more details on the upcoming apocalyptic shooter.

In the ongoing conflict against the Automaton invasion fleet, the Helldivers 2 players have successfully halted their advance. However, the situation has now reached a tiresome stalemate. Yet again, the machines refuse to take a break from their relentless pursuit of progress, with reports emerging of the Factory Striders being deployed in record-breaking quantities.

There have been reports of alleged machines that were supposedly encountered during Operation Swift Disassembly, which was just the beginning of a larger campaign. However, these accounts should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are unverified and seem to be more on the imaginative side. Factory Striders have gained a reputation as formidable weapons platforms that can produce more Automatons while enduring significant damage. If the machines are able to withstand such a relentless assault, it will be necessary to develop innovative strategies.

Have you come across groups of Factory Striders in Helldivers 2? Which strategies are proving to be the most effective in taking down these armored brutes? The Orbital Railcannon Strike will prove to be a valuable asset in the comments section below.

Todd Howard affirms that the timeline of the Fallout series is coherent and well-constructed

The recent release of Amazon’s adaptation of Fallout has ignited a renewed interest in the series and brought attention to the captivating alternate history that forms its foundation. Fans have expressed concern that the TV show’s events might be at odds with the plot of the Obsidian Entertainment video game New Vegas. Warning: Spoilers ahead for New Vegas and Amazon’s show!

Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard and Fallout TV executive producer Jonathan Nolan recently sat down with IGN to discuss the timeline. Howard was taken aback when showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet presented him with the surprising concept of obliterating Shady Sands, the bustling capital of the New California Republic, in the aftermath of the events in New Vegas. Howard eventually warmed up to the idea: “After discussing it, we realized that this could be a significant story moment that many things hinge upon.”

It seems that they had to make some tough decisions to ensure everything fell into place, but Howard emphasizes the importance of preserving the integrity of the Fallout timeline: “We take great care with the timeline. There seems to be some confusion in certain areas. However, all the events from the previous games, including New Vegas, did occur. We take great caution in that matter. We’re really pushing the limits here, but the explosions occur right after the events of New Vegas.

What are your thoughts on this? Is it up to par? Even though it may not have a significant impact on the overall quality of the games or show, it is comforting to know that those in charge are paying attention. We value your feedback and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

Evaluating Fallout 76’s Value in 2024

If you’ve been keeping up with the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, chances are you’ve been relying on PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium to access and enjoy one of Bethesda’s legendary RPGs. We decided to bypass the highly acclaimed Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3, opting instead to explore the vast landscapes of West Virginia in Fallout 76. Infamous for its initial reception, Todd Howard’s “Fallout with Friends” has evolved significantly over the past six years. However, does that imply the game is of high quality? Is it worth playing in 2024?

As we ventured out of Vault 76 for the very first time, we were determined to find the answers to those burning questions. Recalling our escapades on the Push Square YouTube channel, we encountered quest-giving NPCs—a feature that was surprisingly absent upon release—awe-inspiring bases built by fellow players—and an abundance of loot that could easily burden us 76 times over.

In the midst of the vast array of open-world online experiences, we found ourselves quite enthralled by the combination of 50s classics playing in the background as we obliterated the heads of ghouls. And to top it off, we were able to enjoy all of this with our friends. Exploring the wasteland in the company of a ragtag band of survivors adds a unique element to Fallout 76, setting it apart from other games in the series. However, does it manage to prevent us from uninstalling and transitioning to one of the mainline entries in the series? To discover more, be sure to watch the complete video!
