'RAGE 2' Confirmed, Gameplay Trailer to Debut Tomorrow

RAGE 2 has officially been confirmed days after a massive Walmart leak. Publisher Bethesda had also been hyping the announcement, at first with a few cryptic tweets, eventually followed by outright confirmation.

A gameplay trailer for RAGE 2 will release tomorrow, May 15.

While we don't know what RAGE 2 will actually look like, we can predict the tone of the game based on the reveal trailer. The trailer includes a lot more color than the first RAGE, with splashes of purple and yellow dominating the screen. There also seems to be more personality in the characters, with a strong Mad Max meets Borderlands vibe.

Based on the trailer, and the first RAGE, it looks like the post-apocalyptic setting will return. Shooting will also be heavily featured, judging from the number of guns seen in the latest video. Melee weapons and thrown weapons are also seen in the announcement trailer, which means they will likely be featured in the game as well.

Unfortunately, no release date was mentioned in the reveal trailer. It's possible this news will arrive with tomorrow's gameplay trailer, or it will be held for Bethesda's E3 showcase. Since the company is already revealing a gameplay trailer, it's likely the release date will be some time soon, perhaps even by the end of the year. Typically, companies don't reveal gameplay until close to launch, when all the systems are in place.
