Gameplay trailer and screenshots revealed for Rage 2

That's right, Bethesda Softworks gave us a two-minute glimpse of some insane FPS action, in their upcoming game, RAGE 2.

In a blog post accompanying the trailer, Bethesda refers to RAGE 2 as a "shooterverse", blending id Software's acclaimed first-person shooter mechanics with Avalanche Studios' "mastery of the open world sandbox".

New information on Rage 2 will be announced during the presentation of Bethesda at E3 2018, which will be held June 11. Breaking somewhat from their trend of rapid-fire releases, it will be Spring 2019 before we can start raiding Rage 2's wasteland on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

The open-world mayhem experts from Avalanche Studios are now bringing their talents to 'Rage'. In the year 2185, humanity's numbers are dwindling.

Bethesda has a lot more to show you from RAGE 2. Considering how Avalanche Studios worked on a Mad Max game before RAGE 2, it is not surprising to see their efforts being utilized here. The remaining humans form gangs, while the Authority tries to "rule with an iron fist". The main character, Walker, is on a revenge quest to hunt down the men that left him for dead. It was just one of those games that exists, you play it, and you never think about it again, made worse by the fact it released after Borderlands had already dominated the post-apocalyptic shooter schtick.

Nevertheless, the 14-time major champion is to play the weekend for the seventh time in eight events he has played this year. At least he had a chance to make it, as the much-hyped group of Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler fizzled.

But for the record you play as the last Ranger of the wasteland who's looking to "crush the oppressive rule of The Authority once and for all".

We get to see how cars, explosives and guns are used as weapons.

Following on from the Walmart leak last week, Bethesda essentially confirmed that Rage 2 was coming with a few teases on Twitter. As Walker in RAGE 2, you also will learn how to channel Nanotrites into weapons and push them into Overdrive to unleash unrelenting hell.

Fight against ferocious factions for control of the wasteland, each featuring a rogue's gallery of madmen, mutants, and monsters hungry for blood.
