Rage 2 Character Creation

Rage 2 character creation is a new feature in the upcoming sequel to 2011's Rage.

Rage 2 is an upcoming open-world first-person shooter with role-playing game elements. Developed by Avalanche Studios in conjunction with id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks, Rage 2 aims to elevate on its predecessor and create a more colorful, fun romp.

Like its predecessor, Rage 2 is reminiscent of other games, most prominently Borderlands and Fallout, with its post-apocalyptic open-world setting and appeal towards vehicular combat paired with role-playing game elements and a more lurid, explosively colorful experience.

One feature from Fallout that the first Rage lacked and which has been added in the sequel is a character creation.

Rage 2 Character Creation

Rage 2 has a confirmed character creation system, with players given control over attributes such as gender, skills or attire.

The player character is named Walker, the last ranger in a disaster-stricken wasteland inhabited by dangerous mutants. With most of humanity dead, the survivors have banded together to create new settlements and factions, with one known as the Authority rising as the dominant military power in the area. Taking place thirty years after the first game, Rage 2 sees the introduction of new characters as well as the return of old ones.

It is unconfirmed if appearance will be available to customize beyond clothing/armor options. It also seems that gender will be purely aesthetic, and beyond change in voice actor little else will be affected in terms of gameplay or story.

Rage 2 will release on May 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. It will have multiple editions including a special Collector's Edition.
