Bethesda launched its E3 2018 press conference with a… lively and totally necessary show from rock star Andrew W.K. and afterwards dove right in with the reveal of Rage 2. id Software Studio Director Tim Willits introduced the game as well as announced that it was working with Just Cause developer Avalanche Studio to develop the game.
As expected, the game is an over-the-top open world shooter which Avalanche Studio Game Director Magnus “Thor” Nedford saying that it is the most insane game they’ve ever developed.
And those who have played Just Cause 2 will know that this is no easy feat for Avalanche to top.
If you are going for over-the-top, Avalanche Studios is the team you want on your side. However, the last time they split up and developed two games, Mad Max and Just Cause 3, neither game really clicked. Mad Max was a pretty mediocre game that ran with spectacular performance. Hopefully, they bring their software fidelity and lets id Software make a majority of the creative decisions.
They know what they are doing in these FPS games too. They kind of invented the genre.
Rage 2 will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring 2019.
