    The only reason I can think of it using the Just Cause engine is to provide a big open world that never really has to load. id tech 6 is stellar but I don't know if it can do open worlds well. Big set pieces for sure but nothing that would flow well without loading screens. I think if they can nail the feeling of movement and fluidity from DOOM then they'll have a pretty good chance, the other half is performance. id tech 6 is a brilliantly optimised engine especially with Vulkan that provided accessibility to a massive range of hardware with solid performance.

    After seeing the gameplay I'm going to skip this one.

    The nanotrite thing gives gameplay that looks a lot like Bulletstorm... now if only they made a sequel to that.

    New gameplay: Feels like they've butchered it. But definitely not on the "buy now" list, might be good for some mindless fun. We'll see what it looks like and how it plays on full release.

    I actually enjoyed the gameplay! I could do with a mindless open world kill spree.

    I was just a bummed out because Rage combat felt somewhat serious. This one feels like Borderlands without different art/graphics. Could be good though.

    OK OK, I am actually liking where this is heading. The world doesn't look as comical and some darkness has been brought in. I just hope, and I can't fckn believe I'm saying this, that my current rig can handle this game.

    I have no idea where I heard this or how much is bullshit, but supposedly this was originally designed as Mad Max 2, but due to licensing it fell through, so they repitched it and salvaged it into Rage 2.

    That video definately got me alot more interested in this. Didnt hear great things about the first and it's mega textures so not sure whether or not to give it a crack.

    Seeing more gameplay. God damnit, too many game releases in the past few weeks. I don’t really want to get a new card so I can get some nice high frame rate.

    pretty sure your titan x should be able to handle these games. Maybe not max graphical quality settings but somewhere close.
