And nor should you
Fair play to Bethesda: it doesn’t give up on its games. We thought RAGE 2 was a perfectly adequate first-person shooter, so it’s good to see the release receive some post-launch support in the form of new cheats and an expansion pack. Intriguingly entitled Rise of the Ghosts, you can catch a sneak peek at the DLC in the video...
Boom, there it is
RAGE 2 will be getting a "big" update in June, according to an official post from publisher Bethesda. The patch is aiming to fix pesky audio bugs, like non-playable character dialogue cutting out, as well as crashes. What's more, the Wasteland Wizard -- the guy who sells cheat codes -- is going to be made easier to find. Not...
All the rage or just raging?
RAGE 2 has been out for a good few days now, and so naturally we want to know what you lot think of it. The open world shooter was met with good-but-not-great critic reviews and to be totally honest, its arrival doesn't seem to have made much of a splash, but that's why poll articles like this one are important! What do...
Not quite all the rage
RAGE 2 reviews are beginning to roll out, and it looks as though the critical reception has been a little lukewarm. The open world shooter is largely being praised for its bombastic combat, but its plot, story length, and side content are being dinged. About what we all expected? In any case, we've compiled a number of...
Lots of free content, along with paid expansions
RAGE 2 releases on Tuesday, promising tens of hours of explosive, joyful action. However, developer Avalanche Studios doesn't plan on stopping there after it announced a ton of post-launch content coming to the game over the coming months that'll extend the experience's legs through until at least the...
Where do we even start with this launch trailer for RAGE 2? What begins as a mishmash of gameplay footage turns into a mental self-aware comedy short about the property's history. We suppose that you'll just have to check it out for yourself. As for the actual game, it's out in just a few days, on the 14th May. Are you looking forward to...
Always believe in your soul
With just under two weeks left until launch day, Bethesda has revealed RAGE 2 has gone gold. Development on this collaboration between id Software and Avalanche Studios has concluded, and the open world shooter is now ready for the big time. The publisher made the announcement over on its official site, where it also...
Bang bang vroom vroom
Just what the heck is RAGE 2 all about? If that question's ever crossed your mind, then you're in luck, because the game's latest trailer presents a quick and easy breakdown on everything you need to know. Alternatively, here's the game summed up in one sentence: Shoot ugly mutants/people with big guns in a big open world --...
Best pre-order incentive ever
The infamous Walmart Canada leak of E3 2018 went down as one of the biggest mishaps in video game retailer history, but RAGE 2 continues to see the funny side by offering a boxart sleeve for pre-orders that was used to make light of the situation a year ago. Just take a look at it in the tweet below.
And a cliff
It seems the marketing machine has begun for Bethesda's open world shooter, RAGE 2. Yesterday, we got a decent look at gameplay in a ten-minute video, and now, we have a brand new trailer that's mainly concerned with showing off the various baddies you'll find in the wasteland. There's a bit of foul language, so be careful where you...
Mutants, guns, map markers
It looks like playing RAGE 2 will be a blast, but based on what we've seen so far, there's not much more to the game than its mental weapons and fast-paced shooting. That isn't necessarily a problem, but we just... Well, this new gameplay footage is exactly what you expect. Go to location on map, shoot things or blow...
You're 'avin' a larf
Fair warning: the trailer above contains some strong language. Get a pair of headphones, you muppet! RAGE 2 just shot up our most wanted list. Why? Because the man himself, cockney actor Danny Dyer, in all of his cheeky glory, has given his voice to the upcoming open world shooter. Basically, the title has cheat codes that...
The wasteland superhero
If people thought Far Cry: New Dawn ate RAGE 2's lunch last month, the latest trailer is sure to set the record straight once again. The new footage goes deep on the sort of abilities you can take advantage of in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, as well as some unforgiving melee takedowns not for the the squeamish. A sort of...
All the rage
The combination of id Software and Avalanche Studios instantly makes RAGE 2 a game of interest. These two seemingly disparate studios have joined forces on the unlikely sequel, and while the reception has so far been fairly muted, it's hard to not be intrigued. Luckily, the game is looking pretty promising in this new gameplay video,...
RAGE 2 will attempt to keep you engaged with both free content updates and paid DLC, confirms Tim Willets, studio director of id Software. Speaking to VG247, Willets lets slip: "We’ll have some post-launch updates that will add experiences so you keep playing... We’ll have some free content and we’ll have some paid content." As you...
Shooting with style
It feels like RAGE 2 hasn't exactly set the gaming world on fire, but it is starting to sound a little more interesting than we first thought. The title, being co-developed by id Software and Avalanche Studios, is Game Informer's latest cover story, and in the above video, several of the publication's staff discuss the game's...
Get ready to rage
As promised, we got a new look at RAGE 2 during The Game Awards with the above new trailer. It looks like a pretty typical post-apocalyptic open world shooter, but the meaty shooting and crazy characters look fun enough. We're interested to see how it all plays out, but it seems we're in for a bit of a wait. RAGE 2 will launch on...
Bang, another one
It's been a little while since we heard anything about RAGE 2. It made an appearance at Gamescom 2018, but we still know relatively little about the open world shooter. The fact it's a joint effort between Avalanche Studios and id Software is pretty exciting, but it remains to be seen whether it'll all come together. We'll at...
IGN's nabbed 9 minutes of RAGE 2 gameplay at Gamescom 2018, and the whole thing's totally uncut. It's got hefty looking gunplay, a glimpse at some special abilities, and wingsticks. You know, that boomerang-style weapon from the first game. How do you think RAGE 2 is shaping up? Aim for the head in the comments section below.
Anywhere and everywhere
Many of you reading this will have played open world games that aren't really all that open. Huge maps that are segmented into zones, and in order to gain access to those zones, you need to either work through the story or fulfil some kind of level requirement. Sound familiar? Apparently, this isn't something that RAGE 2...
DOOM Eternal may have been the big draw of Bethesda's keynote at QuakeCon 2018, but RAGE 2 also took to the stage with a solid seven minute gameplay trailer. It's got some narration that gives a bit of context to proceedings, and naturally, there's a lot of action. The shooting still looks especially punchy and the vehicular combat seems...
Single player only
RAGE 2, unlike its predecessor, won't contain any multiplayer modes when it arrives next year. The original RAGE had co-op and a vehicular combat mode, but developers id Software and Avalanche Studios are putting all their effort into a solo experience. Speaking with Eurogamer, Magnus Nedfors, a designer at Avalanche, said,...
More at E3
Well here it is, your first real look at RAGE 2. The post-apocalyptic open world shooter is being co-developed by id Software and Avalanche Studios, so you've got what seems to be very DOOM-esque shooting mixed with a chaotic sandbox. In short, it looks very promising in terms of gameplay. It's not quite as colourful as we thought it...
So RAGE 2 is officially official, and we're getting a gameplay trailer tomorrow. But before we get stuck into that, Bethesda's own listing for the game reveals a decent amount about the project. For starters, it looks like the developer is Avalanche Studios -- the folks behind the Just Cause series and Mad Max. For whatever reason,...
You can almost picture the suits gathered around a white board with the words “RAGE 2” and “personality” sketched out in pink and yellow marker pen. This full-length reveal trailer for Bethesda’s next big game goes hard on the punk pop theme, showing overacting individuals in Mad Max attire throwing the horns against a...
Bethesda must be raging
We learned late last week that RAGE 2 would be officially revealed today, but it seems that the short teaser trailer has made its way online ahead of schedule. Initially uploaded to YouTube, it has since been taken down, but that didn't stop several people from creating mirrors. You can watch the video in the below tweet...
RAGE 2 will be revealed on Monday, 14th May – which may actually be today depending on when you’re reading this and which timezone you’re in. After a week of teasing, Bethesda confirmed the news on the franchise’s official Twitter account earlier today, which was only recently resurrected following a
Paint the town pink
That rumoured RAGE sequel is looking more and more likely by the day, as Bethesda has dropped another hint that a follow-up to the first-person shooter is on the way. Hot on the heels of a Wal-Mart leak, the publisher resurrected the franchise’s dormant social media page. Today it’s shared a
RAGE 2 is… Real? The title, listed as part of a Wal-Mart Canada leak earlier today, was shrugged off by many as mistake – but if it was, why has Bethesda’s just resurrected the first-person shooter’s dormant Twitter account? The publisher may very well be goofing around, as evidenced by its not-so gentle ribbing of the aforementioned...

Still undecided about Bethesda's recent uber-pretty FPS, RAGE? No problem, the publisher's got your back
It's announced that it is to release a demo for the post-apocalyptic anger management sim on the PlayStation Network come December 6th. "The Ghost Clan, a cult of murderous fanatics, has infiltrated the waterworks beneath the town of Wellspring with plans to poison the water supply,"..
Microsoft's XBOX 360 continued its North American domination throughout October, leaving the PlayStation 3 sitting behind
It was a big month for multiplatform software, with Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, NBA 2K12 and RAGE all appearing in the top five. Surprising, huh? Sony touted a 5% increase in software sales for the year, and also announced that inFamous: Festival Of Blood had become the..
Rumours are flying that Bethesda has temporarily postponed development of Doom 4 after the recently released RAGE didn't meet expectations. Apparently parent company Zenimax has "a serious lack of confidence in the project management at id," following the technical issues and luke-warm reviews surrounding RAGE. We thought the game was above average in our review, but struggled to..
We told you FIFA 12 would hold onto the top of the UK sales charts for a good number of weeks
Not even an onslaught of new releases — RAGE and Dark Souls no less — could push the soccer sim from its perch, with both titles finishing second and third respectively. Elsewhere, there was room for Resistance 3 to re-emerge in the top-ten, while usual favourites Zumba Fitness and LEGO Pirates Of The..
RAGE is just a week away from release now, and to celebrate Bethesda's released a sixth gameplay video taken straight out of the game's campaign
In the video, the Resistance has heard rumors of an Ark surfacing in Jackal Valley and they need you to search the site for a valuable data decrypter. Unfortunately you'll be met with resistance from the Jackal Clan. Catch the footage after the jump. The..
Pre-order a copy of RAGE ahead of its October 7th release date and you'll have your copy automatically upgraded to the Anarchy Edition
This extended version of the game adds four additional items to your arsenal, including a Double Barrel Shotgun, Crimson Elite Armour, Fists Of Rage knuckle-dusters, and a Rat Rod Buggy. Hit the jump to see the goods in action.
The PlayStation 3 version of RAGE will come packed up on a single Blu-ray disc (unlike the XBOX 360's enormous three-disc solution) and will require an 8GB install, id Software's creative director Tim Willits told Eurogamer
"Sony was great," Willits praised. "Kudos to Sony for letting us do that. They don't allow every game to do that. So definitely, hats off. What we were able to..
The collector's pack for id Software's upcoming RAGE will be exclusive to GAME and GameStation, Bethesda has announced
The package will include to Dark Horse comics that detail the events prior to the game, in addition to a 'Making Of' DVD and the downloadable content from the game's Anarchy Edition. The Anarchy Edition includes a Double Barrell shotgun, as well as some unique armour and a..
John Carmack believes the next PlayStation will be ten-times more powerful than Sony's current system
The programming legend told Eurogamer that he believes Sony's new console will arrive "in a couple of years". "The next-generation will be here soon, a couple of years," Carmack told the website. "It'll be another ten times as powerful as this . I'd be surprised if that..
Bethesda's just let us know that all preorders for id's upcoming first-person-shooter-meets-car-combat affair, RAGE, will be upgraded to the "Anarchy Edition" in the UK
The Anarchy Edition was announced during Bethesda's pre-E3 showcase last month and includes a bunch of in-game goodies. There's a double barrel shotgun, some elite armour, a pair of knuckle dusters and an exclusive buggy livery..
Bethesda's popped us over a new gameplay trailer for id's upcoming first-person shooter RAGE
We haven't been convinced by the title's combination of first-person shooting and vehicular combat in the past, but it's slowly starting to win us over. There are not enough car combat games. Our initial distaste for RAGE's vehicular combat stemmed from the assumption that it would amount to nothing more..
May 20th will either be one of the best days for new video game releases, or worst depending on your wallet's flexibility
Bethesda's slapped a May 20th release date (May 17th in North America) on ambitious multiplayer shooter Brink. Unfortunately, that's the same day as Rockstar's L.A. Noire. Decisions, decisions. The publisher's also put a June 3rd release date on Hunted: The Demon's Forge. Rage..
RAGE may look like a bland reskin of Gearbox's Borderlands, but boy does it look like a pretty one
During QuakeCon last night, id committed to a September release date for the post-apocalyptic shooter. The game will hit North America on September 13th, 2011. Europe will have an extra two day wait, as it'll hit store shelves September 15th there. RAGE has been a long time coming, but we suppose when..
The winners of the E3 Game Critics Awards 2010 have been announced
Nintendo's 3DS handheld managed to scoop the coveted "Best Of Show" award, while PS3 titles Portal 2 and Rage walked away with two awards a piece. God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta scooped the "Best Handheld" award, while Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood got the best...
Doom 3 coined a phrase when it was released
"Monster closets". The term refers to the way in which the game would spawn enemies if you reached a set point. Thankfully id have scrapped such design philosophy. Speaking with 1up, Rage lead designer Matt Hooper explained that enemies will be "doing whatever they're supposed to be doing. If they're supposed to be defending against you..
Speaking with EDGE, id's John Carmack has stated some issues with getting his game Rage to run as well on the PS3 as on the XBOX 360 and PC
While the 360/PC versions of the game are running at 60FPS, the PS3 is managing just 20FPS."The PS3 lags a little bit behind in terms of getting the performance out of it," Carmack explains. "The rasteriser is just a little bit slower - no two..
