Now we’ve got that Far Cry New Dawn tryhard out the way, it’s time to turn our attention back to Rage 2. Bethesda has just dropped a rather delightful new trailer for the first-person open-world shooter, packed full to the rafters with all sorts of maniacally inventive death-dealing.
“Using your arsenal of powerful weapons and hi-tech nanotrite abilities, you’re going to wreak havoc on the baddies lurking throughout Rage 2,” says Bethesda. “While they are super powerful on their own, you’ll get maximum damage by pairing those weapons and abilities for crazy combos that will knock the socks off* (*absolutely obliterate) anyone that stands in your way. The Authority doesn’t stand a chance!”
Now that’s a damn fine trailer.
The fingerprints of both id Software and Avalanche Studios are all over this one, from the brutal combat to the playful mechanics. Rage 2 evidently isn’t a game that takes itself too seriously, right down to that excellent Wasteland Superhero theme tune.
Rage 2 is out on May 14th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
