First Rage 2 Gameplay Trailer Looks Intense!

Bethesda Softworks, id Software and Avalanche Studios has today released the first Rage 2 gameplay trailer. Yesterday we shared with you an announcement trailer with the promise of a Rage 2 gameplay trailer, and today we can now take a look at what to expect in the wide open world of Rage 2.

The two minute trailer shows a huge world with different environments, packed full of crazed and insane enemies. While the premise of Rage 2 remains the same to its predecessor, it appears this game will be a lot more open, with plenty of exploring to be had. While the trailer starts off with a bit of cinematics, the second half shows a fair amount of actual gameplay.

Watch the official first Rage 2 gameplay trailer from Bethesda Softworks, id Software and Avalanche Studios below:


In RAGE 2, you’ll dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. You can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything. The game brings together two studio powerhouses – Avalanche Studios, masters of open world mayhem and id Software, gods of the first-person shooter – to deliver a carnival of carnage.

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. You are Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland. Robbed of your home and left for dead, you’ll tear across an unforgiving wasteland battling bloodthirsty gangs to find the tools and tech needed to take the fight to The Authority and crush their oppressive rule once and for all!

Here’s our favourite screen-grab from the new Rage 2 gameplay trailer:
