RAGE 2 Pre-Beta Gameplay Footage

Bethesda Softworks has published nine minutes of gameplay footage from RAGE 2.

The new footage, which is taken from a pre-beta version of the game, features the player character jumping, shooting, and flying their way around a massive environment. Check out the footage below.

RAGE 2 was originally leaked by Walmart Canada in May 2018, and is being developed by Just Cause and Mad Max developer Avalanche Studios as well as Doom developer id Software.

Last year, OnlySP’s Damien Lawardorn asked if Bethesda Game Studios should have developed the game instead. Slated for launch on 14 May 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, RAGE 2 was given the title of one of OnlySP’s Best of E3 2018 in June last year.

Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over four years with no way of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption, Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
