The wait is nearly over. Bethesda has released the launch trailer for Rage 2.
Rage 2 will be released in a mere five days, and it looks to be an early game-of-the-year contender. While the originalÂ game reviewed well (79 metacritic rating) and did feature enticing fps sequences and was supposed to be the showcase game for IdTech 5 (but was subsequently plagued with optimization issues on PC and console), it never really seemed to steal the overall mind-share that Rage 2 currently has. Be it the sequels expanded color palette, the belief that how well optimized Doom was on PC will translate to a far smoother launch (although it has been noted by Gamespot back in 2018 that it will not be using the Id Tech 6 engine and has opted to use dev partner Avalanche Studios’ engine from the Just Cause franchise), or just the fact of how social media is weaved into the fabric of our lives that it’s hard not to see previews of the game; Â everything about Rage 2 has the arrow pointing up. Way up, actually.
Strap in for a the comedic launch trailer featuring some nice self-deprecating humor based on their non-ending of the previous game.
Pick up Rage 2 on PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 14th.
