Rage 2 Will Have A “A Social Component” But No Multiplayer

Rage 2 is one of the upcoming games that we are very excited about and the devs talked about the game in a recent interview. While Rage 2 will have no multiplayer, it will have a social component according to the devs of the of the game. Studio boss Tim Willits talked about the game and the importance of community. The following is what he had to say in this regard:

We will have a social component but it’s not your typical multiplayer. We’re not quite ready to talk about it but we understand community is important, and we understand connecting with other gamers is important. But there’s not a true what I call ‘classic’ multiplayer, so you’re not running around together with your friends, because we feel we have enough hours of entertainment for your money. We feel like we have a good offering.

Willits also talked about the post-launch content for Rage 2 and it seems that there will be plenty of stuff to do even after the initial launch. From what we hear, there will be plenty of activities to take part in and the game will be worth the money that you are spending. The following is what Willits had to say in this regard:

Our way of thinking is making the tail of the game longer. Our fans put hundreds of hours of their lives into the game and we want to give them an experience worth their time. We have plans to do all sorts of things: free plus paid updates and obviously some dynamic elements.

It has been confirmed that Rage 2 will not have any loot boxes but we don’t know whether the game will have any microtransactions. Willits was asked about this and the following is how he responded:

Ah… I don’t know yet. You need to be careful when you say things – like ‘loot boxes’. ‘Argh oh my god loot boxes!’ We won’t have loot boxes but yes we are trying to figure out how it will work. It’s a balance: you don’t want people to feel like you’re trying to chase them for money but you want to give people the opportunity to have the experience they want and to extend that tail, so we’re still working some of those plans out.

From what we have seen and heard so far, Rage 2 seems to be a pretty decent game and if you have played the previous game then you might want to check out the upcoming one as well. Bethesda is going to be at Gamescom 2018 so you might be able to play the game there. For more information regarding Rage 2 stay tuned to SegmentNext.
