As per our review
from back in 2019, Rage 2
"is bloody fun". The Avalanche Studios and id Software collaboration, which presents an over-the-top and colorfully violent take on post-apocalyptic open-world action is currently free via the Epic Games Store
Which is will be for next week -- so head here to grab your copy
Like all id joints Rage 2 features a great FPS feel, with impressive weapons and combat that blends nicely with Avalanche's open-world chops as seen in games like Mad Max. The version up for grabs is the launch edition with the Epic Games Store listing post-launch DLC as coming soon.
GAME TRIVIA - Did You Know?AusGamers
(yep, us) railed against the Mad Max
game from Avalanche Studios
over the developer' decision to voice the titular character with an American
voice actor. We ran a Change.org campaign that hit the ground running and gained national and international support for an Aussie to play Max. In fact, we garnered so much traction in our campaign, Mel Gibson
's brother, Donal Gibson
and Urban Legend
director Jamie Blanks
reached out to us directly to showcase just how good Donal would be
playing the character his brother so famously brought to the masses. Alas it was not meant to be, and Avalanche went with a less-than-memorable Aussie voice actor meaning we'd won the battle, but not the war.
