Recently, Bethesda held its annual E3 media event in Los Angeles. A variety of new games were announced and we got an in-depth look at Rage 2 alongside other titles. The publisher provided extended gameplay footage of the vehicle combat as well as shooting mechanics.
Considering that Microsoft has a strong relationship with Bethesda, many gamers wanted to know what the publisher is doing to enhance the game for Xbox One X. Luckily, Eurogamer was able to get an answer. In a report on the website, the outlet said that Avalanche Studios is targeting 60 FPS on Xbox One X.
60 FPS — an integral part of the gunplay which has become part of the id brand — will be part of the PC, Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro experiences, but not on base consoles. It's still some feat given how previous games built on Avalanche's Apex engine — as Rage 2 is — haven't offered 60 FPS in the recent past.
It's great to see the developer leveraging the power of the Xbox One X to push out a higher resolution and frame rate. It's unclear if Rage 2 will feature a 4K 30 FPS or 1080p 60 FPS toggle or simply maintain 60 FPS throughout the experience.
Rage 2 looks like an insane amount of fun which also leaves a lot of room for experimentation. You can use a variety of weapons and special abilities when taking on dozens of enemies at once. The boss battles have also been dialed up a notch because now they feature massive beasts which would make anyone quiver in fear.
Rage 2 is a first-person shooter which takes place in a post-apocalyptic future. Following a catastrophic asteroid impact, Earth is in ruin and numerous individuals are put into underground hibernation. Unfortunately, events don't go according to plan and the surface is overrun by mutants and an oppressive organization known as "The Authority". It's up to you to liberate everyone dismantle the oppressive regime once and for all.
Hopefully Rage 2 will be a polished experience when it launches in 2019. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the project or receive a concrete release date.
