RAGE 2 Expansion Hits September 26th
Due to an ill-timed vacation, I never had a chance to cover Rage 2 when it hit shelves back in May but by the looks of the Rise of the Ghosts expansion coming later this month I should really rectify that…
The expansion adds in a new story set in an all-new region. Want more new stuff? How about a new vehicle, new enemies, and a new weapon?
Here’s the full press release:
Rise of the Ghosts expansion coming to RAGE 2 on September 26
RAGE 2, “one of the best-feeling shooters ever” according to VG247, is back with its first expansion, Rise of the Ghosts, coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 26. Avalanche Studios and id Software have cranked the insanity factor from an 11 to a 12 in Rise of the Ghosts, giving players a brand-new story in a new region that’s littered with the cannibalistic, Feltrite-infused Ghosts, a new Feltrite Laser Launcher to disintegrate those Ghosts, a new Void ability to use the force upon the Ghosts, and more.
Yeah… there are plenty of wasteland Ghosts that need bustin’, and the only one you need to call is the Wasteland Superhero, Ranger Walker, with his overpowered Feltrite abilities and his arsenal of devastating, flesh-chewing weaponry.
Players who don’t own the Deluxe Edition can purchase Rise of the Ghosts from the in-game store for 1500 RAGE Coins, or $15.00, on September 26. Players who currently own the Deluxe Edition will automatically gain access to Rise of the Ghosts on September 26, and if they’d like to purchase the Deluxe Edition, they can head to the in-game store now and purchase for 2000 RAGE Coins. Along with Rise of the Ghosts, the Deluxe Edition also gives players the DOOM BFG, Wasteland Wizard Cheat Codes, Progress Booster, and the Battle Standard vehicle banner.

• Brand-New Story
• New Enemy Faction, the malicious Ghosts
• Huge New Region, the Overgrown City
• New Weapon – Feltrite Laser Launcher: This powerful new weapon incinerates any enemies in its path with a lethal Feltrite-infused beam.
• New Ability – Void: Target an enemy with Void to grab them and suspend them in the air ragdoll-style before sending them flying with Shatter, or focus the ability to make your target’s head explode. Either way, you’re probably having a good time.
• New Vehicle – Ghost Motorcycle
