We're heading back into the wasteland this week and this time around things get a little wacky, but can you bring your friends?

Tuesday this week marks the launch of the long-awaited sequel to id Software and Bethesda’s Rage franchise. The post-apocalyptic story-based shooter was ahead of its time back in late 2011 when it was released, and it fell short on a few counts, seeing rapid player disinterest. Now, Bethesda and Co have enlisted the help of open-world masters Avalanche Studios to ensure Rage 2 is on another level.

The gigantic open-world in Rage 2 is extensive and there are plenty of things to see and do while exploring the wasteland. It doesn’t take long for one to get lonely and wish for some company while bounding through the hills and dunes. 

Does Rage 2 have multiplayer or online co-op in it? 

Unfortunately, the answer is no. 

In probably the most exemplary space to play with your friends on the market, it feels a little odd for a huge open-world action game with goofy undertones would leave any sort of multiplayer out of their game. 

Going back, you can see a pattern of games from Avalanche Studios and id Software (even Bethesda) that are enormous experiences that are designed to be specifically single-player experience. The whole story in Rage 2 revolves around the fact that you (the player) are the last remaining Ranger. Add another player into that and the pungency of the desperation immediately goes away. 

So, as much as we’d love to spend some time with friends or randoms roaming around in the world of Rage 2 -- racing junker cars, and kicking mutant butt -- it’s completely understandable that the entire experience was curated to be a solo adventure. 

What is the Rage 2 Release Date? 

As reviews hit the streets and details are finally spilling out all over the place, many are wondering when they will be able to play Rage 2 themselves. 

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019

Rage 2 will be available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Get out there and enjoy the large wacky world of Rage 2, your friend or partner is just going to have to watch, and in the wise words of lil Uzi Vert, Luv is Rage 2.
