Whatever else you may say about Rage 2, being able to take a shotgun into the desert and make short work of hordes of enemies is a pretty fun endeavor. But when you beat the game, there’s not a whole lot else to do, and those shotgun fantasies fall by the wayside. Not so, with a new update that adds things like Ironman Mode, Ultra-Nightmare Difficulty, and New Game Plus mode.
The news comes from the Bethesda Rage 2 account, which also lists off a few quality of life updates, but is otherwise somewhat scant on details.
Update 2 is coming July 25 with 3 new ways to play: New Game +, Ironman Mode, and Ultra-Nightmare difficulty.
Plus fixes and quality of life improvements, such as an added flashlight, skippable Ark tutorials, and more! 💖 pic.twitter.com/xQsAOFCb1F
