With 80% of the earth’s population annihilated by an asteroid, Rage 2’s wasteland is roamed by a diverse range of antagonists including ultra-violent thugs, swarms of mutated experiments, samurais and cyborgs.

“But there’s not a true what I call ‘classic’ multiplayer, so you’re not running around together with your friends,” he added, “because we feel we have enough hours of entertainment for your money.”
Rage 2 co-makers id Software and Avalanche Studios hope to keep players engaged with post-launch DLC, including the Rise of the Ghosts Expansion, which will be available by summer 2019.
