New Rage 2 Superhero Wasteland Trailer Showcases Crazy Guns and Power Abilities

Bethesda has released a new trailer for their upcoming post-apocalyptic shooter Rage 2 and it is absolutely nuts!

Titled Superhero wasteland, the new trailer primarily focuses on showcasing some of the game’s guns and powerups in action. The trailer also has some funny goofy moments that will definitely make you laugh here and there.

Check out the new Rage 2 Wasteland Superhero trailer down below:

 Associate Content Manager at Bethesda took to the PlayStation Blog to discuss a little more about the powerups in Rage 2. Down below, Lewis describes the number of iterations the team took to create the abilities and how they would complement the hectic gameplay of the first-person shooter title. 

“We went through a number of iterations to ensure that we got abilities that complement and synergize with the weapons, not replace them,” explains Lead Combat Designer Peter Johansson. “In the spirit of id-style combat, we wanted abilities that support the aggressive, push forward, close- to mid-range combat we are creating. The key to survival in Rage 2 is to get up in your enemies’ faces, and the abilities are designed as tools to encourage that.”

Slam
Rain destruction from above with Slam, a devastating ground-pound attack. The effectiveness of Slam is based on height; the higher up you are, the more powerful the Slam. Grab some air with a double-jump and smash your enemies into a chunky red paste.
Shatter
When you absolutely need to get people out of your face, hit them with Shatter, a lethal kinetic blast that forces enemies away from you and sometimes just outright makes their heads explode.
Vortex
Vortex lets you pull your enemies out of their comfort zone. Aim and toss Vortex near a crowd of enemies to yank them all toward one spot, leaving them primed for a well-timed grenade, rocket or other area-based attack.
Barrier
Toss out your own portable shield with Barrier. Block incoming fire and instantly kill pretty much anything that comes into contact with your Barrier. A well-timed Barrier and Vortex combo will drag your enemies directly into your killer shield.
And More…
Those are just some of the abilities you can pick up, but between those four, Rush, Dash, Grav-Jump, Overdrive and more, you’ve got the makings for a master of the battlefield.

In related news, Bethesda released a 9-minute gameplay session with some of the developers showcasing the game in action.
