Bethesda will be dropping the first expansion for Rage 2 later this month, Rise of the Ghosts, which introduces a vicious new faction and new fun ways to annihilate them.
Avalance Studios and id Software’s post-apocalyptic FPS Rage 2 was pretty mad to begin with, but they’re promising to crank up the insanity factor even more in Rise of the Ghosts. Explore a new region, gain a new Void ability, then face the cannibalistic Ghosts and use the new Feltrite Laser Launcher to incinerate them.
Rise of the Ghosts will give players a brand new story, based in the new region of The Overgrown City. The new Feltrite Laser Launcher weapon will disintegrate your enemies, and the new void ability can be used to suspend targets in the air or even make their heads explode. You will also be able to traverse the wasteland in a new vehicle: the Ghost Motorcycle.
Players who already own the Rage 2 Deluxe Edition will automatically gain access to Rise of the Ghosts on September 26; but if not you will also be able to purchase Rise of the Ghosts from the in-game store for 1,500 RAGE Coins, or £11.98. Players could also upgrade to the Deluxe Edition to gain access to Rise of the Ghosts, plus other content such as the DOOM BFG, Wasteland Wizard Cheat Codes, Progress Booster and the Battle Standard vehicle banner.
You can get more details on Rage 2: Rise of the Ghosts here on the Bethesda website, or you could check out this teaser trailer for the expansion that was released during E3 2019 below.
