It is always weird when we get videos as we have here for RAGE 2 today, but it is something to look at for the game as we wait for May 14th to roll up on us. We have new-ish gameplay for the game to look at but as a word to the wise, it is about the same as we have seen from all of the other previews out there after Bethesda had some go hands-on with the game. The difference is that this looks to highlight more of what Avalanche Studios has worked on and less of the commentary of the other outlets. That means we can all enjoy the gameplay for RAGE 2 and actually hear what is going on in the game. That also includes a bit more of the dialog to fill in the reasons why we are doing what we are doing in the game.
Sadly, there is not much new from the previous version of all of this B-roll that this is for RAGE 2 here. We do get to see more about how abilities will be added to our character in the game. It is nice to see that we will have a tutorial to help with each while still technically in the mix of things. I did not notice this in the past, but it is highlighted here fairly well now. Just a bit less on the guns and combat though. I will take it all for certain. As well as the nice little tease for what is to come in the near future for RAGE 2 at the end of this video. So there is a bit of truly something new here…
RAGE 2 — 9 Minutes Of New Pre-Beta Gameplay
A lethal dance-off for a sweet new ability, a high-flying trip over a hostile open world, a fight against a very angry man in a mech suit… RAGE 2 has it all in this brand new extended gameplay video. Don’t miss the ending for a sneak peek at what’s coming next!
Have you seen all of this before or was all of this new for you when it comes to RAGE 2? Do you think it is odd to see the B-roll placed out there as a trailer now after all of the other outlets have used it to their means or do you like having the extra context now? What about that little tease that we had at the end and where do you think it will all lead in the grander scheme of things? Let us and the world know what you are thinking down in the comments and then discuss. When we have more to share for RAGE 2, we will share it all here. Be sure to keep swinging back in to see all of that as we get closer to the release date.
