If there was any question if Rage 2 looked good that’s been answered in the gameplay featured in this new Rage 2 trailer. They are boasting a fully open world, something the original Rage lacked(it was more of a hub world system) as well as the ability to drive any vehicle you see. Visually this does look like the best kind of follow up to Rage and doesn’t look to entirely wipe the original game away as Rage 2 picks up 50 years after the events of the first game.

One part of the original Rage I enjoyed was the multiplayer co-op system. I played a lot of split screen co-op on the PS3 and then on PC online with Travis. Hopefully Rage 2 brings this back because it was a very unique component that focused less on twitchy multiplayer and more about working together with a friend.

I agree with you about the Co-op Jon. It was unique. Whereas with Borderlands you’re playing basically the same game but with more people, the dynamic in Rage’s co-op changed the feel of the game dramatically.

The fully open world could be nice if done well. I just hope it doesn’t lose what made the first game unique, although many people would argue that major changes needed to happen to the core of the game.

But Rage 2’s gameplay looks insanely chaotic which is something id has been doing well for a while now. I have really high hop a for this.

I’m comforted to know that this isn’t just shopped out, id is developing it WITH them. It’s possible that the scale was something they hadn’t dealt with before and who better to get than the team who did Just Cause 3?

Yup. I also liked that the Multiplayer was car based.
