Rage 2 discussion

    Amongst a flurry of odd leaks and cheeky twitter banter from Bethesda and the relaunched official @Ragegame account, we have the first trailer and 'official-not-so-precise' release date of 2019 for Rage 2

    Thoughts?

    Yes, the comparison to MadMaxx/Fallout/Borderlands not withstanding, I think it looks like a lot of chaotic fun. I think a lot will depend on any RPG elements (can the character/weapons/vehicles be customized, factions/alliances joined, etc) and obviously the story and gameplay have to be top notch.

    But an Open World Post apocylyptic playground? I'm intrigued.

    What say you?

    Doing some more reading here: https://bethesda.net/en/game/rage2

    Apparently weapons are going to be upgadeable (not surprised) and factions joinable.

    I am too, though I haven't played the OG Rust in AGEs

    My interest in this is piqued. I'm into the artistic direction and the trailer seems cool, but I really want more info before I'd consider preordering. I'd be very into the idea of being able to customize a monster truck in which I can ride around and terrorize a post-apocalyptic hellscape... but at least at first glimpse on this tiny teaser website, it doesn't sound like those will be upgradeable. "If you see it, you can drive it." Maybe down the road in a DLC...?

    Ultimately I'm with you though, I feel like it could go either way, and how much it really is like an RPG or if its more just a shooter will really determine which way I sort of fall on it.

    From what I hear about Rage, it was basically a lot of shooting at people and blowing stuff up. But the story element was (so I'm told) sadly lacking.

    That would have to improve dramatically to pique my interest, frankly

    Edana - agreed on wanting to customize a monster truck! And yeah I think I’d need some good rp elements to be too engrossed.

    Paul - yeah hard to know about the story. It seems a tad generic at present.

    Honestly it all depends on the price of the game. I'm not paying $100 (Australian Dollar, this is the base price for new games here) for it unless it's the next...I dunno, God of War really and is toted as having the best story in all of gaming. So it interests me, but I'll pick it up in a year or two depending on how well it sells (the less it sells the quicker the price drops)
