Bethesda Confirms RAGE 2 On Twitter

After Walmart Canada accidentally listed numerous unannounced games for pre-order last week there has been a stir in the gaming community due to the listing of RAGE 2.

RAGE was a first-person shooter and racing game developed by id Software, and published by Bethesda Softworks.

The game is set in a post-apocalyptic version of a wasteland created by an asteroid impact, based on the real life asteroid 99942 Apophis, which will pass by Earth in 2036. In Rage’s story, the asteroid strikes in December 2029, and the few pockets of survivors are forced to begin a new civilization.

The world is populated by human survivors of the impact, who have come together to form settlements around oases and other practical or habitable locations. These fragile homes are diligently defended by the inhabitants against bandits and mutants, which are divided into various gangs and organizations of their own. Bandits and mutants serve as the player’s main enemies for much of the game, with later addition of more organized and dangerous forces.

The protagonist emerges into this setting after being preserved inside an underground cryogenic pod. The Arks are the direct result of the Eden Project, a massive international undertaking in which hundreds of Arks were sealed under the surface of the Earth with twelve people inside each. Each passenger possessed a special ability or trait that, combined with those of the other members, would help them rebuild society. The Eden project, however, was far less successful than hoped. The protagonist’s Ark in particular is in bad shape at the start of the game. All of the other residents of the Ark are dead, and its equipment is destroyed as well, so the protagonist wakes up alone and uninformed. With no information on his location or objectives, he is forced to head for the surface to find sustenance and allies.

RAGE was released in 2011 by id Software to favourable reviews and found a cult status among gamers.

Bethesda appear to have confirmed the games sequel this weekend via Twitter.

Judging by the timing, a full announcement could be happening at Bethesda’s conference at E3 this June.
