While there's no context right now, Bethesda has confirmed that a full gameplay trailer will follow later today. The amalgamation of id Software's shooting and Avalanche's open-world travel should be a flawless pairing for a game we never knew we needed.
The asteroid mentioned in the trailer has resulted in Earth's population being reduced by 80 percent, and the "Authority" organization has attempted to take control. "Bloodthirsty gangs rose up in the chaos and every faction warred to rule this wasteland".
The world first learned of "Rage 2's" existence last week when pre-order info supposedly appeared on the Walmart Canada website for it and various other unannounced titles like "Gears of War 5", "Borderlands 3", and "Lego DC Villains". You emerge into this vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and the Authority - an oppressive government regime that has a special interest in you in particular. With a wide array of weapons, vehicles and unusual powers, Walker sets off to take down the tyrannical Authority. Driving might not be the first thing that you think of when you see a first-person shooter, but its importance can't be understated, especially when it comes to Rage. Walker will have an assortment of weapons at his disposal, which will be upgradeable.
Among the arrows he can choose from his Nanotrite ability quiver are the power to crush enemies into paste from above in a devastating slam attack or send them flying away from him with a lethal energy push.
He can also use his powers to "Overdrive" his weapons giving them powerful attributes. Fans of the franchise can watch the trailer below, and get a better look at the environments, baddies, and bruisers that they will be destroying when the game finally releases.
