You roam the open roads as Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland, and you are dead set on destroying The Authority and ending its oppressive rule. That was just another tease though, for today when we get our first look at actual gameplay thanks to the official RAGE 2 gameplay trailer, which you can check out below. Publisher Bethesda has teamed up with id Software and Avalanche Studios to create an open world shooter that looks like Resdient Evil meets Destiny.

The world first learned of "Rage 2's" existence last week when pre-order info supposedly appeared on the Walmart Canada website for it and various other unannounced titles like "Gears of War 5", "Borderlands 3", and "Lego DC Villains".

Based on the simple fact that the same people who made Just Cause 3 are involved in making Rage 2, gives gamers hope that it will at least be somewhat of a fun game.

The original Rage, which was released in 2011 as a semi-open-world shooter, impressed the masses overall. The first official gameplay trailer arrived with a burst of neon, guns, mohawks and our favourite, weird weapon, the wingstick.

Grindel struck a more conciliatory note on Tuesday, saying, "People can make mistakes and we have to keep things in perspective. Some (of the reaction) seems to be over the top to me".

As if the gangs and mutants aren't enough, Walker also has to contend with the Authority, returning antagonists from the first game who threaten anything good remaining in the world.

That "perfect mix" Bethesda describes is the two studios behind Rage 2. Make sure to tune in to the #BE3 Showcase June 10 at 6:30 pm Pacific, when Bethesda will show off with new Rage 2 gameplay and much more.

Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons and gear, odd and powerful Nanotrite abilities, and Overdrive, a unique skill that lets you push your guns far beyond their mechanical limits. If you see it, you can drive it.

According to an accompanying press release, you'll get to visit a variety of post-apocalyptic terrain, "from lush jungles and treacherous swamps to sun-scorched deserts".
