If RAGE 2 has your curiosity piqued, then there's news for you in that Bethesda has just published a new video for the next installment in the RAGE universe.

Thankfully you don't have too long to wait until you can get involved in the mayhem, as Rage 2's release date is set for, well, sometime in 2019 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. After seeing said gameplay, this is the Mad Max game we've been waiting for.

Rage 2 is being developed by Avalanche Studios, the company responsible for theMad Max game and Just Cause series, along with original Rage developer Id Software.

The gameplay will take place in a massive open world in what remains of humanity, but with no law, zero order and a survival of the fittest/nastiest play out it's going to be an eye watering ride. From the swamplands and jungles where enemies lurk among the dense foliage, to the open deserts where a passing auto is more likely to mow you down than offer you a ride, the world of Rage 2 is not a gentle, nurturing place.

As promised, Bethesda has pulled back the curtain on the first Gameplay Trailer for Rage 2.

We believe this game has HUGE potential, especially with Avalanche Studios co-developing the game with iD Software!

Second, story details. Rage 2's post-apocalypse comes courtesy of an asteroid that's wiped out 80 percent of the world's population.

The trailer below showcases the kind of madness you can expect from the game. The gameplay reveal was due tomorrow and Betehsda Softworks has finally shared the gameplay footage for RAGE 2. With Rage 2, the team seems to be going in a different direction, emphasising the insane action set pieces that Avalanche is known for from games like Just Cause and Mad Max. Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule with an iron fist. This time, rather than being a survivor from before the devastation, players take the role of Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland and a man who has been robbed of everything valuable in his life except for the need for justice. Because of that, it's imperative to gear up and learn the ropes of who is who in the game of RAGE 2.

At the very least, it will feature a more lighthearted tone than the first game, Gamespot reports.
