Rage 2 Pre-Order Cheat Code Activates NBA Jam Commentary

Publishing company Bethesda Softworks made an announcement on Monday that Rage 2 pre-order will come with a “cheat code” that will bring Tim Kitzrow’s voice to the game. Kitzrow is best known as the commentator voice of the NBA Jam franchise.

We all know it was April Fool’s Day yesterday but Bethesda has assured that this news is not an April Fool’s Joke.

The cheat code is called “He’s On Fire” and will unlock play-by-play commentary from Kitzrow in Rage 2. Think of it this way, whenever something cool happens in the game, Kitzrow will commentate on it. If you haven’t heard Kitzrow’s commentary yet, here is a sample you should definitely hear:

Rage 2 is a crazy game being developed by ID Software and Avalanche Studios. Both the studios have wide experience when it comes to developing action packed games. Imagine Just Cause series combined with the experience of DOOM, that’s Rage 2 for you.

Furthermore, the developers have also assured fans that the game would be in better shape as compared to the original Rage as the first game was a total mess when it got released. Bethesda Softworks on the other hand also needs a good game after the recent disaster of Fallout 76. We are hoping that Rage 2 will deliver on its promises and we will have an entertaining shooter to enjoy.

The game’s official website description says:

An asteroid has annihilated 80% of the earth’s population, and humanity’s numbers are dwindling. Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule with an iron fist. As Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland and a threat to their power, you have been robbed of your home and left for dead. Now you’ll have to rage for justice and freedom. With ludicrous vehicle combat, super-powered first-person mayhem, and an open world full of emergent madness, you will tear across an unforgiving wasteland battling sadistic gangs to find the tools and tech needed to crush the oppressive rule of The Authority once and for all.

Rage 2 is an FPS game by Avalanche Studios and Bethesda Softworks for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will release on May 14, 2019.
