We are only a little bit out since RAGE 2 launched and we are back to see just how the game is going to expand just a bit more. Yes, it is time for all of that DLC that Avalanche Studios has been working on for the game and for us to dole out more cash to Bethesda here. That is if you did not already get a version of RAGE 2 that came with the Season Pass or access to the DLC here. This was not one of the bigger games out there, so it is possible. But the first big DLC is coming on September 19th and bringing a whole lot of things to us on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. No matter where you are playing the title if you still are.
This new expansion for RAGE 2 is called Rise Of The Ghosts and will be bringing in a new faction called the Ghosts. Not a shocker there. It will also be bringing along a whole new location for us to shoot up called the Overgrown City with the new weapons, abilities, and vehicles. All, of course, are themed toward this new DLC as it should be expected. If only we had a new trailer to look at for RAGE 2 here to see some of this in motion. Sadly, we do not but we have some screenshots and a lot of text to take in so we can better understand. Have a look and then get ready to drop $15 USD on this or just download depending on how you picked it all up in the first place.
An old threat has returned to haunt the wasteland once again in RAGE 2’s first major expansion. Explore a brand-new region, face a lethal new faction, and gain access to a new weapon and ability in Rise of the Ghosts. Get more details on Rise of the Ghosts and how you can get in on the action below.
Walker Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts
The Ghosts were once a terror in the wasteland. Ruthless, vicious, tactical and cruel, they took what they wanted and left no survivors. Following the Authority Wars, they were nowhere to be found. At the time, many people assumed they had simply been wiped out and they began to fade into wasteland legend. In reality, they had found a higher calling; a strange woman named Iris promised them power and glory if they did everything she said. Iris and the Ghosts fled to the Overgrown City, where for years they underwent intensive brainwashing and were subjected to experiments that left them with powerful and mysterious nanotrite abilities.
Now they’re ready to reclaim their place in the wasteland. Under the watchful eyes of Iris, the Ghosts will prove to be a formidable new foe for Ranger Walker. He’ll need to navigate a huge new region called the Overgrown City and put a stop to their uprising before the Ghosts can gain a foothold in the wasteland. Luckily, he’ll have the new Void ability and the Feltrite Laser Launcher to add to his already-impressive arsenal. Rise of the Ghosts also introduces the new Ghost Motorcycle to the game, which players will be able to find in the Overgrown City and bring back to their Garage.
