Rage 2 Official Gameplay Trailer

The official gameplay trailer for first-person shooter Rage 2 from Bethesda showing off intense apocalyptic mayhem.

We had a lot going on at this point with upcoming first-person shooter RAGE 2 from id Software and Bethesda Softworks. First there was a Walmart listing which leaked that the game is in development, then the announcement trailer got leaked online and they eventually released it after taking down the leaked one. The first live-action trailer didn't give away much except for the type of tone the game will adapt and announced that they will drop a gameplay reveal trailer today!

Just as they said yesterday, the official gameplay trailer is finally here. If you expected it to be intense and feral, then you guessed it right.

With this trailer, we are back on the wasteland but not quite the one from the first game but something that looks similar to Mad Max. The protagonist is the last remaining Ranger named Walker and not U.S. Marine Nicholas Raine this time. Into the vastness of empty desert and concrete jungle, you will go through hordes of uncivilized goons to reach your primary goal of ensuring the downfall of The Authority. Since your character has been robbed off everything he owned, he shouldn't have any problem to follow that agenda.

Although it was solely a gameplay trailer, we got a good chunk of back-story as well, which is mostly vague and typical for such type of game. They really have made the gameplay better this time as you can see in the clip above. Whether it is some mohawk sporting skinny punks or hulking mutant enemies, shooting at them mercilessly is sure looks fun. The visuals are improved as well as a bigger open world is for players to roam through. On top of these, there is that damn pink color almost everywhere!

Currently, action shooter RAGE 2 is planning to release on 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The original RAGE came out in 2011 and after six long years, developer id Software is bringing the franchise back along with Avalanche Studios. Bethesda probably have had plans to release these trailer to E3 or at least not just now but thanks to all these recent leaks, the publisher have had enough and straight out dropped it out of the box.

RAGE 2 Officially Announced

It was only last week, when a Walmart’s listing leak lead to the news that sequel to 2011's first-person shooter from id Software and Bethesda Softworks is actually happening. Instead of shooting down the idea, they playfully trolled back at Walmart Canada by offering notes to improve design efforts on their placeholder listings. Then they started posting teaser image that clearly said RAGE 2 is coming until the reveal trailer got leaked as well just before the official release and now we are here.

The live-action cinematic trailer showcases a newly revamped world of RAGE 2 without hinting any clue about the game's plot.

The trailer looks like a hybrid clone made out of Mad Max: Fury Road movie and Borderlands game. Of course it officially confirms that we sure are getting a sequel to RAGE but at this point there was very little to not know about that. At first thanks to that Walmart listing, then Bethesda decides to be a sport by teasing for a few days on social media and then the leaked clip has done it all. Still, the official clip is a bit longer than the one which was leaked earlier but later taken down from YouTube.

If not all but many fans who waited for official confirmation for this project may have expected what they just saw, because a couple of punk-ass dancing and jumping around with big-guns amidst a confusing, pink atmosphere doesn't remind them of anything from the first game of the series. Since RAGE was developed to showcase their new game engine, perhaps the developer and publisher agreed upon going for a soft-reboot approach with this one like they did with Doom, Prey and Wolfenstein II.

If they are truly aiming for a revamp as the changes suggest, it may even turn out to be successful considering their previous track record. E3 is due for next month and we already halfway through May, 2018, so by then we can definitely wait for a full-length trailer to delve deeper into the game's plot maybe! In the trailer's closing card, they mentioned that a gameplay reveal will take place tomorrow, May 15.

RAGE 2 Confirmed by Leaked Teaser

Earlier before the release of official teaser trailer for first-person shooter RAGE 2, Bethesda suffered another leak on the internet.

Back in 2011, developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks came up with a first-person shooter RAGE, which was set on a post-apocalyptic world like the one we saw in Mad Max. The game was very well received by both fans and critics, so it would be pretty natural if fans want a sequel of the game after six years, right? For the past few days, we witnessed a number of leaks from Walmart listings, their publisher has been hinting about it and now a teaser for RAGE 2 is leaked.

People already got interested when a leaked Walmart listing has showed RAGE 2 as an upcoming release. Bethesda neither denied, nor confirmed about the authenticity of the news but decided to troll Walmart Canada with the official Twitter account of the game. Although, they have been teasing everyone by dropping images from the game for some time now and even subtly revealed the date for teaser trailer, it eventually got leaked on the internet somehow before they could officially release it.

The version that was uploaded to YouTube has since been taken down for obvious reasons but Twitter user @Wario64 managed to make an animated GIF version of the clip posted along with his Tweet. Looks like the wasteland is into the color pink now as every other maniacal punk is either coloring their hair pink or spraying it everywhere. We still not sure why! Hope to find it out very soon. Other than that, it was a mad, mad world already on the original title and sequel should be more than that.

So far, we do not know yet that what platforms are it going to be available for or when is it due for release, clearly because all these leaks are a bit disturbing. No story or anything that seems like a gameplay was also absent from the video as it was meant to just tease us and the publisher is going to drop an official announcement later today anyway. So, we will not have to wait too long for finding out more.
