Rage 2

Every Google Stadia game announced so farAug 19, 2019 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun Google held another one of their Stadia Connect conferences today, and this one was meant to be all about what games you’ll be playing in the “scary” cloud come November.

To help keep track of them all, here’s a list of every Google Stadia game confirmed so far, as well as which games are coming at launch, which ones will be arriving a little bit later, and which games you’ll only be able to play by subscribing to one of the special Stadia publisher subscriptions.

Read more Rage 2 update brings New Game+ and some bloody hard new modesJul 26, 2019 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun Do you remember Rage 2? It had this whole wacky pink-neon punk vibe going on before launch. For a hot second, I was pumped to become some mad blue-haired lass battering the wasteland with a baseball bat. Turns out, nah, you’re some future cop called Walker (who in a cruel twist, drives around more than they walk) out to ruin the party for everyone. Rubbish. Avalanche Studios probably aren’t gonna rebuild a whole game just for me. But they are going to try to tempt folk back with some bloody hard new modes, a truckload of quality-of-life changes, and stickers. (more…) Today's Rage 2 update will introduce New Game PlusJul 25, 2019 - EurogamerRage 2 had a lacklustre start to life but the efforts to improve it continue. Today's update introduces three new ways to play the game - New Game Plus, Ironman mode, and an ultra nightmare difficulty - as well as fixes and quality of life improvements. Players who found the tutorials and intro dialogue cringeworthy (as I did) will now be able to skip them, and the addition of a flashlight to the game is welcome. Other improvements include bug fixes, pop-ups no longer pausing the game, and a camera deadzone slider. There'll also be a new voice pack, undoubtedly to tie in with the release of the new Wolfenstein game, as it will feature the voice of B.J. Blazkowicz. Read more RAGE 2 – Update 2 Patch NotesJul 25, 2019 - Community Announcements RAGE 2's Update 2 is coming TODAY, July 25. The update features several game improvements based on your feedback, including a New Game+ mode, added flashlight for making those darker areas easier to navigate, and more! Here's a look at what’s coming in our new game update: New Game + New Game + is something a lot of players have been asking for, and the team at Avalanche has gone all out for it. Now, when you finish the Project Dagger storyline and complete all of the Arks, you’ll be able to load up New Game +. This will carry over all your weapons, abilities, upgrades, and vehicles, and there will be a little surprise waiting for you when you revisit the Arks in your new playthrough. (Spoiler alert: It’s awesome skins for your weapons.) In addition, you’ll gain prestige badges when you play through the game multiple times, and the difficulty will increase with each additional playthrough. Ironman Mode Everyone knows Ironman Mode. You die, you lose. Sound tough? Nah. You got this. We believe in you! (Don’t worry, using your Defibrillator doesn’t count as dying.) Ultra Nightmare Difficulty When we talked to one of RAGE 2’s producers about Ultra Nightmare difficulty, he just said it was “crazy hard” and stared off into the distance with a haunted look in his eyes. It’s probably fine, though. Twitch Bounties If you stream RAGE 2 on Twitch, you might end up seeing some familiar names popping up on bounty boards throughout the game. Viewers of your stream will be included in the pool of wanted criminals for you to hunt down. New Wasteland Wizard Cheats Dash Ragdoll: Become even more of a living weapon with the Dash Ragdoll Cheat. When you hit Dash you’ll lose all control of your limbs, literally transforming you into a ragdoll as your hurtle toward unsuspecting (and rightfully confused) enemies, instantly killing anyone in your path. Super Knockback: You know in anime when the hero punches someone and they fly off into the stratosphere? That could be you with the Super Knockback Cheat. All your melee strikes are amplified to the nth degree so just wind up and watch your enemies fly. Quality of Life Improvements Pop-up notifications no longer pause the game Camera Deadzone slider adjustment added to controller options Flashlight added for navigating dark areas (hold Focus to activate) You can now skip Aunt Prowley’s dialog in the opening mission Added an option to disable Ark tutorials Tracking projects now shows progress on HUD New options to turn off Damage and Kill notifications on crosshair “You Call That a Wingstick?” and TV Fatal voice packs auto-granted after account link (previously required buying from Wasteland Wizard) Bug Fixes ChazCar vehicle no longer misaligns Walker through the chassis when at an angle Fixed an issue where you could not fast travel to Kvasir’s lab when there was an objective marker on the ...RAGE 2 - Update 2 Arrives July 25Jul 16, 2019 - Community Announcements Update 2 is coming July 25 with 3 new ways to play: New Game +, Ironman Mode, and Ultra-Nightmare difficulty.

First, a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has been playing RAGE 2 and kicking butt in the wasteland! We appreciate all the feedback we’ve been getting from you and fellow players throughout the Steam boards. We've been collecting all your feedback and reports of issues. The dev team is hard at work on implementing new features and bug fixes for our first big patch for the game, coming in June. We wanted to take a minute to cover just some of the reported issues we are working to address: Audio fixes, such as NPC audio dips Menu optimizations (reduction in latency) Several crash fixes Racing bug issues, including finishing in 1st place but receiving 2nd place (how rude!) Reducing the amount of Wasteland Wizard locations (from 15 to 3!) A dialog prompt issue with Kvasir Mouse acceleration/smoothing options New AMD sharpness algorithm for all platforms (to address “blurry” complaints) Nicholas Raine armor fix Again, this is just some of what we’re addressing in our first game update. We will be providing a full list of patch notes as we get closer to finalizing everything that will be included in the update. Outside of squashing bugs, the team is also working on adding new features to the game. We’ve seen the feedback that you want to be able to revisit some of the bandit camps that you’ve previously cleared. We love that feedback! In the near future, select bandit camps that you’ve cleared are going to be repopulated at an even higher difficulty with a reward incentive. The best part? The challenge is ongoing, so you can test your skills as you attempt to clear the outposts again and again, with the outposts getting more difficult each time. More details to come. Be sure to keep an eye out for even more of the newness coming to RAGE 2 at the Bethesda E3 Showcase on Sunday, June 9. You won’t want to miss it! Thanks again for all of your feedback -- keep it coming! Rage 2 PC analysis: what does it take to run at 1080p60 and beyondMay 21, 2019 - EurogamerRage 2's console release revealed a big divide in performance between the standard and enhanced machines. PS4 Pro and Xbox One X delivered beautifully smooth 60 frames per second gameplay, with a drop to 30fps on vanilla hardware. The big surprise? Even Microsoft's six teraflop monster 'only' ran at 1080p resolution, leaving it down to the PC game to scale up to higher resolution displays. But what does it take to hit 1440p or even 4K at 60fps? And in what other ways does PC scale beyond the console experience? First impressions are certainly promising. In common with Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, Bethesda has taken the brave move of shipping Rage 2 just with Vulkan API support, with no DirectX fallback. Settings-wise, the game is fairly comprehensive with plenty of tweakables to adjust, including toggles for contentious post-processing effects like chromatic aberation and motion blur. The game can run fully unlocked with frame-rates beyond 60fps (unlike the original Rage) and 21:9 ultrawide support is also baked in. There's even support for dynamic resolution scaling, which potentially could be very useful... if it were working. From what I've witnessed, internal resolution increases based on screen movement (?) with the end result being that jumping on the spot can deliver a higher quality image. It doesn't seem to scale according to GPU load as you would expect, suggesting that the feature is very broken right now. Regardless, I'd suggest turning this feature off, with the hope being that its functionality will be addressed in a forthcoming patch.

Not even an employee anymore and he’s still making work for me. Join me for a stroll down the hit parade to inspect last week’s top-selling games on Steam. (more…) Rage 2 sales significantly down on originalMay 20, 2019 - EurogamerRage 2 has topped the UK charts, but with significantly fewer sales than the 2011 original. It's not a huge surprise - the first Rage game failed to find much of an audience, and this very-belated sequel never seemed to drum up the same level of excitement other games from publisher Bethesda usually enjoy. In its opening week, Rage 2 sold just a quarter of Rage 1's physical launch sales. (Rage launched here in the UK on a Friday. Rage 2 launched on a Tuesday, so had longer on sale, too.) Read more Rage 2 review - sparkling combat is let down by a hollow open worldMay 17, 2019 - EurogamerFor all its promise of anarchic mayhem and its striking punk palette, Rage 2 is a surprisingly vanilla experience. Though on paper it delivers a lot of the contemporary triple-A features we've come to expect - meaty combat, open-world exploration, sassy (if occasionally grossly stereotypical) NPCs that offer secrets and side missions, unlockable fast travel, and a perfectly serviceable, if somewhat derivative, post-apocalyptic story - it sometimes feels as though these disparate parts are pieces of a puzzle that don't quite mesh together as a whole. Despite its deliciously decadent violence and unapologetic gore, Rage 2 is trying to be all things to all people, and its own identity just might have been lost in the shuffle. While this sequel includes a handful of subtle, hat-tipped references to its predecessor, you can safely embark on this adventure without having jumped into the last. You play as one of the last remaining Rangers, an almost unique symbol of virtue and citizenship in an otherwise lawless, impoverished society rife with bandits, mutants, and ne'er-do-wells. You can select either a female or male Ranger and they're fully-voiced and fully-realised, complete with an intriguing-if-not-particularly-unique backstory that drives much of the main campaign's impetus. Consequently, your foes are numerous, ranging from mutants who have been physically and intellectually scarred by experimentation, lawless bandits - including the oh-so-colourful punks you've seen adorning the marketing materials - and the military might of the Authority, a technologically-savvy army led by General Cross. It's the latter that is the most formidable, and it's those battles that are likely to be the most challenging, too.

RAGE 2 brings together two studio powerhouses – Avalanche Studios, masters of open world insanity, and id Software, creators of the first-person shooter – to deliver a carnival of carnage where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.
