Ever since the Walmart Canada leak last week let slip the potential existence of some incoming Rage 2 news, Bethesda has jumped on the opportunity to follow it up with a series of images in Tweets alluding to an imminent announcement. Today in fact!
Now the first trailer for Rage 2 has been unveiled, bring some brightly-colored post-apocalyptic mania and a great use of the evergreen Andrew W.K. and his belter of a track, ‘Get Ready to Die’.
Bethesda has confirmed that the first gameplay footage will arrive tomorrow.
Avalanche (Mad Max, Just Cause 3) will be making Rage 2, which leaves id Software to make something else (though it is helping out on Rage 2).
It was the Rage Twitter account that confirmed a new trailer would be coming today.

We’ll bring you more information on any Rage 2 news as it comes in.
