    Wow the EG search is woeful. Couldn't even find anything on a Google search. Anyway this out in two weeks and all the previews are very positive and this trailer looks amazing.

    60fps on consoles as well.

    Looks fun with fantastic graphics too. I enjoyed the first Rage. Not that this looks very similar!

    Looks a like New Doom meets Mad Max.

    I approve of this.

    I also enjoyed the first game, although the ending felt a little rushed. Looking forward to this.

    Your vision cone is too narrow.

    You're right, time to increase my real world FOV settings.

    This looks very fun from the trailers shown so far but I'm going to hold off until I get a new gaming PC. I really don't get on with fast paced FPS games on console - the last Doom game in particular I found too awkward on controller for the pace of the game.

    One of the worst game endings I've experienced. It's like Bethesda just pulled the plug on investment and id had to just wrap the thing up.

    The original game had its flaws and the RPG elements were undercooked but the core gameplay was great fun.

    Easily my most hyped game of 2019, the main avalanche studio haven't ever made a bad game and JC2 +Mad Max are 2 of my favourite games ever. Combine that with the shooting from ID and it's going to be amazing I reckon

    Last I remember of Rage was the weird lightgun version Jesse Pinkman was playing in Breaking Bad.

    Itíll be interesting to see how the driving/shooting work.

    All I know is it has been very collaborative. avalanche have headed up development but id have been in charge of the shooting gameplay mechanics.

    Maybe. Last year I dumped someone before my birthday and found out he had bought me loads of amazing presents and concert tickets!! This year I'm getting taken abroad and rage 2 so I need to wait. (Not saying I am going to dump him but he is starting to annoy me)

    It uses Avalanche's open world game engine (I forget the name). Just Cause games tend to have performance issues - probably physics related - but Mad Max was super smoorh.

    Feels like a very low-key run in to the launch of this. Very little coverage around, that I can see.

    Vaguely tempted by it, but conscious I never really got into the first one. Admittedly, that was largely because the crappy ATI graphics card I had at the time it came out had some driver issues with it that resulted in appalling pop-in, but the world-building also failed to tickle my fancy. Pre-orders seem pretty cheap - it's available on PC for under £30 if you look around.

    @Rogueywon ign and GameSpot, the two biggest sites, have covered it shit loads. Ign have a tonne of videos uploaded on it in the past month.

    @Dombat absolutely agree. It did feel like a strange ending, coming out of nowhere. The gameplay was very satisfying.

    I'm not seeing a lot of hype for this one. Admittedly the first game had its problem, but it was decent fun for a while. I don't think I'll buy it immediately, but I could give it a try on a sale.

    This isn't being developed by id Software, right? Not with Doom Eternal right aside it.

    It's a Bethesda game so if you give it 6 weeks it will probably be £20

    @Malek86 ish. The main team is mad Max team but id did all the shooting/combat mechanics.

    @Frogofdoom that's still a lot. But I imagine it will hit Game Pass pretty soon. Hopefully it will run better than JC4 on a base Xbox.

    60fps for PS4 Pro/XB1X, 30fps for base PS4/X1.
