  1. Any info on which platforms it is for? I assume PS4, XB1 and PC

    Terrible aesthetics. Hopefully the game doesn't have that kind of attitude. You can make a "I'm having fun because I get to blow shit up" vibe without having people flipping the camera off.

    where were you last year? ALL four of their SP games last year underperformed.

    And yes, Fallout and Elder Scrolls have and will always be big sellers.

    Much more interested knowing Avalanche are involved. Pretty interesting choice to go from Mad Max to fucking Rage tho

    Cool style, can't wait for gameplay

    This isn't the first or last post in here like this I'm sure, do people notice this, really?? Do you always jump straight to counting black people in trailers

    Hell yeah, really liked Mad Max! Now we just have to wait tomorrow to know if it will be a TPS or a FPS, hope we will get both options.

    "Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together a true open world FPS experience where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything."
     
  15. I don't have a link, but if you watch gameplay.

    The mutants crawl in from the windows and vents and attack you.
    THey charge you and throw themselves towards you and stumble around when shot.

    I noticed that the ghouls in fallout 4 do nearly the same if not identical animations and behave the same way when stagered/throwing themselves at you.

    --------

    My guess Rage 2 is a test bed for Bethesdas new game engine, similar to how rage 1 was a showcase of IDTECH 5

    How big part was driving in the first game? Is it like the Mad Max game?
     
  21. Seems like it's co-developed by id Software and Avalanche

    I played RAGE for a bit around the time when it came out, but I never did finish it. Wanted to play it last year, have it on my Steam, but somehow the game never worked for me. Is it one of those "doesn't run on Windows 10 64 bit issues?", cause that would suck.

    Anyway, I really liked the idea of the game and while it wasn't executed as well as people hoped, I still enjoyed what I played at the time. It's a shame I didn't get to finish it.

    The tonal shift is fascinating and I wonder what caused that, maybe the success of Mad Max: Fury Road, or the underappreciated Mad Max game? Speaking of which, I finished it on PS4 again yesterday (thanks Plus!) and found myself wanting more Mad Max. Can't help but think what could be improved or added in a sequel. There's possibly no chance of ever getting a sequel, but it would be fun if you could romp around the wasteland in co-op, Far Cry 5 style. Perhaps alternating positions with one driving and one taking up the role of Chumbucket.

    But let's see what RAGE 2 is going to be like and what kind of other changes we can expect in the gameplay, tomorrow.

    Maybe they've gone full open world this time. Not sure I want an open world Rage game tbh. The first was linear but well structured.

    I actually enjoyed this trailer quite a bit. Yeah, it's goofy as hell, but I'm OK with the Mad Max devs throwing Fury Road, Borderlands, and Far Cry in a blender and seeing what comes out. Never played the original so a major tonal shift doesn't bother me much.

    I wonder if they got the job because of Mad Max, or if Mad Max 2 was in development, got cancelled, and turned into a Rage game.

    Probably not, considering it's Avalanche. Probably using the engine they used for Mad Max.

    Definitely PS4/XB/PC and maybe Switch later(?)
    Also that "co-developed" feels like PR talk; Avalanche will definitely be doing the heavy lifting on this one.

    Just to remind everybody what Avalanche Engine (APEX) is capable of (not my screens)

    Love the tone of the trailer, seems they aren't taking this seriously at all and just running and having fun with it. Smart move in terms of marketing on that front.

    Never played the original but I'm very interested in picking up the sequel

    Seems like this confirms a marketing deal for Microsoft as well. Could show up at their E3 presser if Bethesda is trying to get this out there now to clear space during their presentation.

    Weird trailer, but i’m very okay with the “Fury Road on Acid” tone of it. Bring on that ingame footage!
