Rage 2 gets announced with a trailer

Following the release of Prey a year ago, Bethesda has announced a new game in yet another series we had believed to be dead. "Head to the wasteland for pure pandemonium in 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC".

Id and Avalanche have already described the game in stunning detail, stating "In RAGE 2, you'll dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order".

Avalanche Studios (Just Cause, Mad Max) has teamed up with id Software (DOOM, Quake) to throw players into an open world where they can "go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything".

Bethesda Softworks made Rage 2 official Monday followed by the release of a gameplay trailer today.

From the trailer, we can see there will be plenty of guns to use, a variety of different characters and creatures, and a vast world to explore.

Gas prices up to $3.09 in much of West Michigan
Tennessee's gas prices rose 3 cents in the last week, standing at $2.62 per gallon - the highest daily price since November 2014. KELO.com News spotted one gas station on Cliff Avenue with selling regular unleaded gasoline at $2.99 a gallon this morning.

Revealed in a press release alongside the game's first gameplay trailer (below), the game will cover a variety of post-apocalyptic terrain, "from lush jungles and treacherous swamps to sun-scorched deserts". Those are the only options, because you certainly don't manage to pull Rage 2 out of your hat unless you know for sure that's coming. With Rage 2, the team seems to be going in a different direction, emphasising the insane action set pieces that Avalanche is known for from games like Just Cause and Mad Max. Humanity's numbers are dwindling, and it's up to you to fight for what's left under the rule of the tyrannical force known as The Authority.

As if the gangs and mutants aren't enough, Walker also has to contend with the Authority, returning antagonists from the first game who threaten anything good remaining in the world. This is a game, at least we hope, that demands creativity.

The gameplay trailer below sets things out pretty clearly, although the concept is not a complicated one even if you're not familiar with the 2011 original.

Without going hands-on with the game (hopefully we get a preview at E3!), it's impossible for me to comment on the actual gameplay mechanics; but, it certainly appears that RAGE 2 will get the adrenaline pumping.
