This week, EPIC Games is offering “Rage 2” for free. The first person shooter developed by Avalanche Studios and id Software was released in 2019 as the successor to Rage. In contrast to previous id Software games, “Rage 2” is less gloomy and uses the Apex engine, which allows you to switch between indoor and outdoor spaces without a long loading time.
The majority of humanity died, only a desolate wasteland remained. As new settlements and factions emerged, a group called Authority declared itself the new military power. It is looking for a valuable nanotechnology to consolidate its dictatorship.
Players can customize Walker’s gender, skills, and appearance. Walker can fight enemies using various firearms and tools. Players can develop Walker’s skills using Nanotrite-based powers. Walker’s weapons do more damage through a mode called Overdrive.
The game also features vehicle combat, including trucks, buggies, and gyrocopters, where the player can control any vehicle in the game’s world.
The Apex engine enabled the team to create detailed indoor environments as well as expansive outdoor spaces and allowed players to transition between these worlds without loading screens. [Quelle: Wikipedia]
