The new Rage 2 announce trailer dropped this morning and features a cacophony of visuals that are tonally similar to the original game. I don't love the live action parts of the trailer but i'm also not a marketing expert i'd just prefer to see gameplay. There are a few gameplay glimpses scatted throughout that look incredible and if you want even more of that Bethesda is launching a gameplay trailer tomorrow. It's a good idea Bethesda is releasing these Rage 2 trailers now before E3. There are a lot of games announced at E3 and doing this beforehand gives Rage 2 a chance to shine during a news lull. I think the original Rage game was way better than it reviewed and during the run up to the Rage 2 I launch plan on coming back and giving it a second look. We've been taking a second look at some older but not really that old games such as Borderlands 2 on Cheerful Ghost Radio and I think we might give Rage the same treatment.

And apparently the gameplay reveal is coming tomorrow.

Bethesda always puts live action stuff in their trailers and it works sometimes. I agree that it didn’t really work for me this time. It just looked like a mid-90s post-apocalyptic sitcom intro which is honestly kinda funny and maybe what they were going for. Just not what I was hoping for.

BUT new gameplay tomorrow so I’m fine with that.

Also I gotta say this is a gutsy move to do this sequel. I really figured after the reception the first game got that it would just kinda be forgotten.

Looks like the developers behind this are Avalanche Studios the team behind Just Cause 3 & Mad Max.

Interesting. That suggests a different kind of focus for the game which may be good.
