It's all in the name, QuakeCon. Shooters of the first-person kind. Ahem. Well, in addition to Quake Champions and DOOM Eternal in the early hours of this morning we also got a fresh look at id Software and Avalanche Studios RAGE 2. In this new deep dive we get a look at the open world environments, story, factions, weapons, and vehicle combat.

Check it out.

It' safe to say that this is looking impressive, with its Mad Max meets Quake vibe. The abilities and weapons and being able to traverse and jump in and around combat areas looks great - and should ward off any doubts that the shooter stuff might suffer without id at the helm. Of which we've been told is sorta the case with Avalanche Studios collaborating closely with the makers of DOOM and Quake on RAGE 2's development.

The car combat section of the video above is presented in a action-heavy way, and it looks like players will take on entire convoys of bikes and other vehicles. Also, the we get a rundown of the various factions which will not only look different but also focus on different battle strategies and rides. The only thing missing, which we'd love to see - would be some form of co-op.

Currently listed with a Spring 2019 release window - that translates to Autumn 2019 for ANZ.
