Company Bethesda Softworks announced RAGE 2 – a continuation of the mix of first-person shooter and race with elements of role-playing game from the studio id Software. Recall that at the head of the development of RAGE was John Carmack (John Carmack), author of Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake.
RAGE 2 is developed by id Software (DOOM, Quake Champions) with Avalanche Studios (Just Cause, Mad Max). In all likelihood, the latter will take the racing aspect of the project.
The RAGE action takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where people have “moved” a bit, like in the movie “Mad Max” or the games of Fallout and Wasteland. According to the plot, until 2020 the governments of the whole world realized the project “The Ark” to save mankind from the asteroid Apophis. “Ark” is an underground complex consisting of life support systems and capsules for putting people in the state of cryosn. In 2029, an asteroid collides with the Earth and destroys more than 80% of the world’s population. After 6 years, the dust settles, and the survivors are selected to surface – to build a new world.
What will RAGE 2 and what we can do in it – we’ll find out tomorrow night, when the world premiere of the gameplay video will take place. The game will go on sale on the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
