    The first was disappointing, so I really didn't care about getting a sequel until I heard it was by the same developers as Mad Max (great game), and watched this trailer which looks pretty epic:



    Released sometime in 2019

    Are you on X ? Read its locked at 1080p 60fps. Was hoping for a 4K 30fps option.

    If it captures id's gunplay, with Avalanche's open-world-building talents, it will be a solid effort. Hopefully it will also have that X factor to make it stand out further from the crowd.

    On the X yeah. Not tried it yet as still plodding through God of War on the PS4. But I believe you are right about 1080p and 60fps.

    Just fired this up on the Xbox One X, can't comment on the story but graphics wise it is not very good at all. Trouble is I am mainly a PC gamer, with the X and the Pro having power to go above 1080p to be honest most games look really nice. Going back to 1080p on a 55inch 4k TV just does not look good imo. But it is very smooth it must be running at 60fps, I just hope the game is good.

    They should have had a higher res vs lower fps option like other games. Just my opinion though, the game could be great and gameplay is always more important then visuals. But with todays TV's this does not look good. Everything seems jaggy and blurry.

    Maybe I am being to fussy, but after seeing how good Days Gone and God of War look, consoles can handle much better then what they did with Rage 2.

    Oh well back to God of War for now.

    IGN gave it 8/10.

    Look forward to this tomorrow. As long as Shopto deliver.

    So it won't blow your socks off but if you want mindless destruction and fun then this is the game for you. I'll get it when it's cheaper.

    Was looking forward to this, but the actual gameplay videos do nothing for me, loved the first one too...

    I cant actually complete the game. Got a bug that stops me speaking to someone, basically holding square to initiate a conversation does nothing.
    But up until then i was really enjoying it, worried im going to have to restart the whole game, tried everything else, previous save, restart console, do other missions first.
