Bear in mind Rage 2? No? Let’s get a move again. Recall Rage at all? Nicely, the oft-overlooked sequel to Id Software’s oft-forgotten FPS will be absolutely free to retain on the Epic Game titles Retail outlet up coming week, so maybe now more than enough people will play for it to stick in the collective memory. I truly read some excellent factors about Rage 2, an open up-planet affair built with Mad Max devs Avalanche, but they slipped out the ear speedy plenty of that I was shocked to be reminded of its existence when it arrived up on Epic’s freebie schedule.

Rage 2 leaned into the open up-planet features of the very first, with a huge and strange wasteland housing sidequests aplenty. The sequel gave us superhero powers as well. Vidbud Matthew fairly preferred components of it, for one:

As did Matt Cox in our written Rage 2 assessment, also with some reservations.

“The sections I like significantly outweigh the sections I you should not,” he stated. “I have received my weirdo NPCs, my Ark hunting, my Whoopinkoffs and Dimbledicks. I have observed every single Ark, now, but I still program on gambolling amongst side functions.”

I assume it truly is that lukewarm 7/10 vibe which brought on it to slip out my brain. But for free of charge, and now that it really is experienced a number of content material updates and eradicated Denuvo? Completely I will bear in mind this time. I am earning a notice. And putting up this so you can also make a note.

Rage 2 will be available totally free for keepsies on the Epic Games Shop from 4pm on Thursday the 18th via the 25th. Epic will also give absent Complete Drift, a pretty enjoyable top rated-down racing sport about refusing to drive forwards, all through that interval.
