Rage 2 is an upcoming first-person shooter video game developed by Avalanche Studios in conjunction with id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks. It seems that after Fallout 76 launching on Bethesda’s client, called Bethesda Launcher, their upcoming titles will do the same, as RAGE 2 is skipping Steam entirely.
RAGE 2 skipping Steam for Bethesda Launcher
As it turns out, the only way to get RAGE 2 on PC is now through the Bethesda Launcher, which people aren’t too happy about, as it’s much easier to manage one client for most games, but it seems that publishers are focusing on making their own clients for games.
Not only is the game not coming on Steam, but games like Ashen is now coming exclusively to Epic Store, which has promised a whopping 88% revenue system for developers.
If you head over to the store page of RAGE 2, you’ll see that the only possible way to get it on PC, is through the launcher itself.
RAGE 2 Deluxe Edition
You can currently pre-order the game for PC, Xbox One and PS4 and the Deluxe Edition will give you the following features
- Rise of the Ghosts Expansion
- DOOM BFG
- Wasteland Wizard Cheat Codes
- Progress Booster
- Battle Standard
From the description of the game
Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together two studio powerhouses – Avalanche Studios, masters of open world insanity, and id Software, creators of the first-person shooter – where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.
RAGE 2 Release Date
The game is headed to PC, Xbox One and PS4 on May 14, 2019.
Here’s a brand new trailer shown at The Game Awards
Ashen, which is a an EPIC launcher exclusive, has already been cracked by CODEX, so we’re guessing that the games will be DRM-FREE on EPIC Launcher?
