Fresh gameplay footage has emerged of Rage 2, the new open-world first-person shooter in development at Avalanche Studios and Id Software.

I’m pretty sure Bethesda just keeps showing off the same location, again and again, presumably to keep the rest of Rage 2 shrouded in secrecy. It doesn’t make for the most exciting gameplay footage then, but it does at least give us a better general idea of what we can expect from moment to moment gameplay in Rage 2.

And that is firing guns. Lots of them. Spraying giblety chunks across the wasteland. Movement agility appears to be the order of the day here with Walker, the protagonist, capable of double jumps, air dashes and strafe dodges.

Visually it’s difficult to tell because of the low-resolution footage, although there’s almost certainly a graphical downgrade from the previous footage shown. It does appear as if they could be playing Rage 2 on the Xbox One though, so we’re definitely still hopeful the PC version will look noticeably better.

There are no system requirements available just yet although we do know Rage 2 will be using the same Apex game engine used just recently for Just Cause 4. We’re yet to see how this engine fares for first-person action, although we’re cautiously optimistic thanks to the involvement of Doom developer Id Software.

Rage 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 14th, 2019. It looks almost certain that Rage 2 will be exclusive to the Bethesda store on PC.

As a person who played and enjoyed more than half of the first game with its story, i was expecting more than this.. To be honest i wasn't excited when i saw the trailer in the first place ...this just looks like a little furbished bulletstorm kind of a game, just run-gun-fun-trolol..another game that has shifted from its origin and turned into another pointless game of nowadays sadly...

I mean Rage was a massively disappointing game. A boring and predictable storyline with an uninspiring empty world. Arguably the only good thing going for it was its decent shooting mechanics. That's pretty much it... Here on Rage 2, you can at least see that the gameplay is a lot better and more refined. Enemies look grunty so far, I hope they show more badass enemies in the near future. According to them; the world is much larger and detailed so personally me I won't be losing any sleep over this change considering how terrible the first was, IMO.
The gameplay flow and consistency remind me a lot of DOOM and that's a glorified run gun shooter not implying there's anything wrong with it.

Seems like another one o those games that really don't want you to get frustrated and encourage you to just stand behind cover for 3 seconds to fully recover. I like open world games, I like shooters, but this just looks so boring and awful for some reason.

Well, it's not bugthesda developing the game so there is hope. Tbf though, I doubt anyone but Bugthesda could create a game like Fallout 76.

Remember when Todd Howard was talking how 5 studios worked on fallout 76 and shat it out.

so should I be worried, that the first word that comes to mind is "boring"?
Also, kind of a lack of blood during the shooting...

Blood is probably just turned off for PR reasons.
