As promised yesterday, Bethesda has shared the first gameplay footage of id Software and Avalanche Studios’ upcoming sequel to Rage.
“In the year 2185, humanity’s numbers are dwindling. Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule who remains with an iron fist,” the game’s description reads.
Players will take on the role of Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland. Players must travel across the unforgiving wasteland battling bloodthirsty gangs to find the tools and tech needed to take the fight to The Authority, the group that robbed Walker of his home and left him for dead.
To help Walker in his quest, he will have access to various Nanotrite powers, such as a devastating slam attack or a lethal energy push. Walker can also channel these powers into his weapons to access Overdrive, a unique skill that pushes guns beyond their limits. While in Overdrive, guns do more damage and gain new attributes, enemies drop better rewards, and Walker’s health starts to regenerate.
More information about the game will be shared during Bethesda’s E3 press conference on June 10th.
Rage 2 launches in 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
