Rage is a first-person shooter series created by id Software with a focus on brutally satisfying gunplay and vehicles that players can use to race and explore post-apocalyptic Earth. Rage was first released in 2011 and now has a wild, open world sequel in Rage 2. Rage 2 is available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
Developed by Avalanche Studios in conjunction with id Software, Rage 2 returns to a world devastated by the asteroid 99942 Apophis. With the majority of humanity wiped out, the ranger Walker has to traverse a dystopian land devoid of society, law and order. Ruthless gangs patrol the open roads while the tyrannical Authority seeks to rule with an iron fist. As Walker, you are a threat to both entities and now have to fight for your freedom.
Rage 2 takes the series to an open world environment with a vast and varied landscape containing lush jungles, treacherous swamps, sun-scorched deserts and more. Many different kinds of vehicles are available to travel across the wasteland including monster trucks and gyrocopters, but you may have to fight for them first. Walker's skills can be developed with Nanotrites, special powers and ability boosts that can increase combat efficiency. And while in Overdrive mode, Walker's guns do more damage so you can aggressively mow down enemies.
