First RAGE 2 Gameplay Debuts

After revealing the teaser trailer yesterday, Bethesda has given us our first look at gameplay for RAGE 2, and as expected it looks like a cocaine-fueled Mad Max simulator, and that’s definitely a good thing. Developed by Avalance Studios, we should learn more about RAGE 2 at this year’s E3. However, here’s an official synopsis for the game:

In RAGE 2, you’ll dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. You can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything. The game brings together two studio powerhouses – Avalanche Studios, masters of open world mayhem and id Software, gods of the first-person shooter – to deliver a carnival of carnage.

In the year 2185, humanity’s numbers are dwindling. Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule who remains with an iron fist. You are Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland. Robbed of your home and left for dead, you’ll tear across an unforgiving wasteland battling bloodthirsty gangs to find the tools and tech needed to take the fight to The Authority and crush their oppressive rule once and for all!

Bethesda Reveals RAGE 2

After a leak, and plenty of viral marketing, Bethesda has officially revealed RAGE 2, with the first bit of gameplay being released later today. RAGE 2 was originally in development from iD Software (makers of the first game), when Bethesda canned the project and sent them to work on Doom, which ended up being a massive success. With that in mind, the current developer is unknown.

The game has a clear Mad Max vibe, with plenty of colors and craziness tossed in for good measure. Expect a better idea, and an update here, when gameplay is revealed this afternoon.

UPDATE: Here’s a look at the first official gameplay.

I suppose it’s just one of those days. Judge Dredd: Mega-City One has just been revealed by Entertainment Weekly, as a live-action television show, just in time for Dredd’s 40th anniversary this year. No other information is available on the show, but attached as executive producers of the new show are IM Global Television president Mark Stern, and the owners of U.K. games developer and publisher, Rebellion, Jason and Chris Kingsley, who also served as executive producers of the 2012 Dredd film.

“This is one of those seminal sci-fi properties that seems to only become and more relevant with age,” IM Global Television president Mark Stern said. “Not only is it a rich world with biting social commentary, but it’s also fun as hell! As a fan of the comics and both films, it’s a dream come true to be able to work with Jason and Chris in adapting this for television.”

“We’re very excited to be beginning the journey to get more of Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One on the television screen,” said Rebellion owners Jason and Chris Kingsley. “Thanks to the legions of fans who have kept up pressure on social media, and a lot of background work and enthusiasm, we aim to make a big budget production that will satisfy both our vast comics audience and the even greater general screen-watching public.”
