Nighttime visibility is also improved significantly aside from tweaking some lighting presets. In response to past complaint of simple looking vegetation and water effects, a little color vibrancy is added to make them look alive.

One of his primary combat moves is a ground-pound attack called Slam, which is capable of delivering devastating damage to enemy as it is performed from height. Aim from a higher surface to drop it on 'em for maximum impact and leave them as paste.

Another powerful attack move is known as Shatter, where Walker throws away his foes off his face in situations where he is overpowered by a herd or just simply makes their heads explode using a smashing kinetic blast.

Barrier is used to put up a portable shield to block incoming projectiles while killing anything that touches it and Vortex drags a bunch of your enemies into one place. A well-timed combo of this two will result in a slaughter of a small group.

These are the abilities you can pick up on the go and a regular use of them will make you a master of superpowers. Plus, over 70 badass upgrades are available for your abilities ranging from cooldown decrease to damage increase and more.

RAGE 2 Release Date

New trailer of RAGE 2 revealed at Game Awards 2018 showcases the open-world wasteland that players will enter on May, 2019.

Initially the reveal of upcoming first-person shooter title RAGE 2 was sort of fun filled with the leak from Walmart listing and then the reveal video getting leaked out but the kind of hype came with it kind of died down after the showcase at E3 2018.

Now that they are wrapped up launch of Just Cause 4 for Square Enix, developer Avalanche Studios and publisher Bethesda Softworks has released a new gameplay trailer for a game that was long abandoned for years, at The Game Awards 2018.

The protagonist Ranger will go to raid bandit outposts, run races or may destroy a convoy and each time, some new mayhem will present itself for him to take care of and improve his bond with some of the key characters throughout the story.

You'd thing that a post-asteroid world would be less crowded but gangs of adrenaline junkies and mutants will prove you wrong. Although a sequel to 2010 release Rage, you will have hard time comparing the tones even though the time has shifted a lot within the game.

Another thing that can have you baffled is that where on Earth did these scumbags found all those fancy convoys and guns? Have you seen them in action already? The middle-sized cars that you see around can tear through decent barricades.

Factions like Immortal Shrouded and the Goon Squad patrolling the areas will open up opportunities for you to engage in some spectacular vehicular combat. Have we also mentioned about the boomerang weapon called the Wingstick? It is super-awesome!

Events will come, enemies will cross path to get into a shootout and you will turn the wasteland into a bloody playground. Even with all that guns blazing and limbs of the enemies getting splattered on everywhere, you can realize at one point that a colorful post-apocalypse doesn't look that scary at all.

With a massive open-world map that allows you to go anywhere and blow stuff up, all the game lacks at this point is probably a co-op play. And you know what the best part is? There are no load times now! So, go crazy and blow something up!

RAGE 2 now has an official launch date of May 14, 2019, when it will be released worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Surprisingly, that is actually pretty sooner that what fans expected and haven't actually hoped anything like it. However, this one is definitely a welcomed one.

Bethesda is having a pretty hard time these days following the unsuccessful release of their online action role-playing game Fallout 76 and the PR disasters they are facing for the title on a daily basis. Hopefully, Avalanche Studios can help them redeem themselves from this shipwreck.

She furiously walks into a sick bay asking her men, how her base got destroyed? As her soldiers explain how they were outsmarted in every step by the stranger, we see disbelief in her eyes. She refuse to buy that one man can cause such havoc on her army alone.

More of them double downs on how they were easily out by this unsung action hero, that they don't even know the name of. Given the fact how an unstoppable force Rico is, their humorous responses was somewhat accurate to his charismatic persona.

Some was amazed to see him coming from the sky and some were bedazzled to his panther-like movement but she still thinks her men are lying. Before walking out of the room, Gabriella warns her goons that when she finds out what really happened, they would wish they were dead.

Aside from taking down evil organizations, Rico Rodriguez chases down destructive tornado in Just Cause 4.

Three years after the release of Just Cause 3, action-adventure title Just Cause 4 got leaked through a Steam listing shortly before developer Avalanche Studios and publisher Square Enix could officially announce the game during E3 2018 press conference.

People who were looking forward to see protagonist Rico Rodriguez back in action got what they wanted and a gameplay trailer was revealed too. Recently at Gamescom 2018, another gameplay trailer is dropped for the game.

The trailer heavily focuses on extreme weather within the open-world of this titular action game and how our hero handles it. As he goes to Solís to stop the tyrannical paramilitary group called The Black Hand, he faces some climatic obstacles.

There is an armored vehicle called the Storm Chaser, which Rico uses to chase a towering tornado by taking down a few wind cannons placed there to keep it under control and divert the wind from current course while it takes down everything on its way.

RELATED: RAGE 2 Official Gameplay Trailer

To take down one of those wind cannons, he uses a railgun and this weapon has a secondary fire option like any other guns from the game. He can also take assistance from a drone and use it for grapple point.

The developers used a redefined version of their Apex game engine to create a dynamic weather system that obeys the laws of physics during blizzards, rain, storms and devastating tornados. Avalanche just teased us what sort of destruction real-world climate change can cause in future.

Before Just Cause 4 finally launches on December 4, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, we will probably know more about the game from the developer and publisher.

So far, the game looks more like its predecessor Just Cause 3 and despite having many gameplay mechanics tweaked, people are still skeptical because that game had a mixed response from fans in general.
