With an assist from Walmart, the news is out: Rage 2 is official. We don’t know a ton about the game yet, but we do know it’s coming to PS4, PC, and Xbox One sometime in 2019. It’s being co-developed by Id Software and Avalanche Studios, and published by Bethesda.
As for what kind of game it is, Rage 2 is an open-world shooter set in a Mad Max-like post-apocalypse. A comet has crashed into Earth, killing off 80% of the population. For the few who are left, anarchy reigns, bullets fly, and explosions are as common as a cold. The game also features a healthy dose of vehicular combat, which comes as no surprise, seeing as Avalanche Studios’ last game was Mad Max. There’s even a gyrocopter for anyone who wants to take to the air.
If you’ve already decided you’re all-in on Rage 2, you’re probably wondering what kind of extra freebies you can get for locking in your pre-order. We have all the info you need below, along with which retailers are currently offering Rage 2 for pre-order.
