Rage 2 may be mainly developed by Avalanche Studios (Just Cause, Mad Max), but it contains plenty of references to id Software’s glory days. The game will include a host of 90s-style cheat codes, and, as we see in new footage from IGN, the game will let you wield Doom’s infamous BFG 9000. We also get a look at some vehicular combat and intense gunplay in and around the game’s tropical biome. You can check out the footage for yourself, below.
Looking pretty solid! Definitely more interesting than the last couple Avalanche open world games, which are always well-built, but have a tendency to be a little dry. Haven’t been keeping up with Rage 2? Here’s Bethesda’s official rundown on the game:
Dive headfirst into a dystopian world without 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 – to deliver carnage where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.
The Wasteland Awaits
Seamlessly traverse a vast and varied landscape, from lush jungles and treacherous swamps to sun-scorched deserts in your pursuit of The Authority. The wasteland is massive, and you’ve got the arsenal to fight for every inch.
The Last Ranger
Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons, devastating Nanotrite powers, and Overdrive, the ability to push your guns beyond their mechanical limits!
Pedal To The Metal
From monster trucks to gyrocopters, use an assortment of rugged and wasteland-ready vehicles to speed across the badlands. If you see it, you can drive it.
Factions & Foes
Fight against ferocious factions for control of the wasteland, each featuring a rogue’s gallery of madmen, mutants, and monsters hungry for blood.
Rage 2 unleashes its fury on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on May 14.
