Rage 2 Drops a Bonkers Launch Trailer, BFG 9000 Confirmed to be Deluxe Edition Exclusive
Rage 2 explodes onto shelves in less than a week, and Bethesda has released a launch trailer to drum up some last-minute hype. The trailer’s concept is neat, as it starts at the game’s final boss, then reverses, showing some of the things you’ll experience in your wasteland adventures. Annnd then it rewinds a little too far to the era of the original Rage, and beyond. Check it out, below.
Fun stuff, although it ends on kind of a downer note, as it confirms Doom’s infamous BFG 9000 is only available as part of Rage 2’s Deluxe and Collector’s editions. A Bethesda rep made this clear on Reddit. You can get more details on Rage 2’s Deluxe Edition here.
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.
