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 currently own the Deluxe Edition will automatically gain access to Rise of the Ghosts on September 26. Players who don’t own the Deluxe Edition can purchase Rise of the Ghosts from the in-game store for 1500 RAGE Coins, or $22.90 AUD / $27.90 NZD, on September 26.
Alternatively, if you’d like to upgrade to the Deluxe Edition, you 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.
