Highlighting the Ubi open worldness of the game with the map icons kind of killed it for me. I’m already lined up with more shooters than I’ll be able to enjoy next year, so I’m almost certainly skipping this one now.
Oh, they are going for that angle. Their single player in the last years haven’t sold a ton, and what other single players have been successful in the market? Ubi games. So they are learning hard in that direction with this game.
There was a comment in E3 times where they said it was potentially a 100 hour game that made me go ‘uh??’ but it makes sense if it’s going to be more Ubi style.
Yeah icon bloat is the opposite of appealing.
I also wonder what the hell is wrong with their art directors? Why do they insist on putting that disgusting greent tint filter on both JC4 and Rage 2? it makes these games look so bad.
Gameplay itself could be fun - seems like it. And I liked the song in the trailer, what is it?
Something I wanted to comment is how they insist in that the game has the id gunplay. I wonder if people are blind, because the action, while looking much better than Just Cause, it’s still clearly not at the same level of Doom, in polish and feedback.
GMG updated the DRM section of Rage 2’s store page to mention Bethnet rather than Steam, and the game is pre-purchaseable on Bethesda’s store as a Bethnet download, which I suppose shouldn’t be a huge surprise given Fallout 76’s exclusivity.
Guess I won’t be playing this in PC. Easy come easy go.
Oh wow. Bethesda really intent on pushing their shitty store. Glad I wasn’t much interested in this, but new Arkane games not being on steam is gonna suck.
I have not yet used the Bethesda store, is it really that bad?
Wow that trailer really got me hyped.
I didn’t see any kind of Ubimap. There was a map, but no sea of repeated icons. If you weren’t expecting an open world from a Rage sequel from the Mad Max devs, I don’t know what you did expect.
I thought it looked rather fun, but… I think I’m ready for a new console generation. Everything looks over familiar now. I think adding more pixels will fix it.
You didn’t see all the icons? They were flying at the screen like a Windows 95 screen saver.
You mean those things at the 15s mark etc? Those could be more ubilike I suppose. I saw them more as explosions than activity icons.
Yeah I am more upset about this than the EPIC store exclusivity stuff going on.
It’s like they want RAGE 2 to fail.
It’s like they’re reinventing the high street. You want shoes and mincemeat, you go to two different shops…
Post-apocalyptic colorful punk? Man, good thing no other popular game went down that route.
Every time i try and remember a Rage 1 level, I picture Borderlands maps.
Remember the sewer areas they were all horrible and the same. Cannot be forgotten.
That train station was good though. The Blue Line? And everything was enhanced by your mechanical spiders of death.
