    No, 30 day patch is released tomorrow.(Tuesday) Lots of bug fixes plus enemy camps will become repopulated. Also an anti blur slider apparently.

    The last patch was just a compatibility update for the China release of RAGE 2.
    The 30 day patch still hasn't come out yet.

    Started playing last week but not sure I will finish. It has turned more into an endless grindfest, it copies heavily from the likes of Far Cry and other games and does not really have many ideas of its own.
    Downloaded a trainer to deal with some of the car things in the game to speed it up, but essentially I'm asked to liberate certain places many times over...meh, Far Cry does it better.

    after reading comments on this topic, im happy i didn't buy the game.

    seems to me a lot of people found it empty as a single player.

    fun game but yea you are looking at anywhere from a 15 to 40 ish hour romp, but the length is tied to how long you find the combat fun, and how long the world holds up.

    maybe the games as a service thing will freshen the game and improve it over time giving it more long term draw. but yea at this point wait for sales. 25 and under probably a no brainier and 30 would not be bad.

    Game is dead? It's not even multiplayer what the frack does that mean.

    It takes maybe 30 hours to finish if you take your time, I don't know about you but I usually don't replay a game immediately after beating it unless it was one of my all time favorites.

    It's a good game, if you don't like the combat you won't enjoy it -- I struggle to think of another tight shooter experience like this with such satisfying combat.

    It is a really good game. But, without MP some think it's "dead forever". And, others seem to have thought this was going to be a big RPG-ish open world, with characters, side quests and all this.
    When it's basically RAGE... a linear story, set in an open world with some filler.

    I liked the combat, think it looks really good.
    And I like driving around, taking down convoys, blowing up bandit camps... stuff like that. I didn't want a super in depth story heavy game here, something simple and fun.

    And, we've getting two more story DLCs that will add weapons, powers, locations and enemies. So.. I'm good.

    There's about 200,000 owners on Steam and peak players were around 20,000. Now it's less than 500 on average.

    DOOM from 2016 has close to 5 million owners on Steam and average 2,000 players today.

    Yeah...RAGE 2 is dying.

    Even though it was released a little while ago now I thought this review was pretty good.



    I've tried it a little on a friends ps4 and yeah, I didn't think it was good at all....

    Yes... and DOOM has been out for three years, received all it's DLC and updates.
    And, even though a lot of people really didn't like the MP, a lot did. And a lot of people still play it's MP to this day.

    You can not compare the player numbers of a game with MP to a game without.

    But, I guess it makes some people feel better to say "Rage 2 is dead" over and over.
    It's sad that a game's quality or enjoyment is judged by the number of people playing it at any given time.

    Yeah I don't get it either why people base their opinion on a game over how many people are playing it at any time.

    By that logic as PUBG is being played by a bucketload of people it must be the best game ever. Or Fortnite.

    some games are ok to compare time played but you have to keep that generally in the area of similar games.

    your average fps single player game is in the 6 to 12 hour area.

    your average open world game is 20 to 100 plus hours.

    rage is a hybrid of the two, as a pure shooter it is perfectly great in its length. as an open world game it is mediocre or under performing.

    so you get this wierd it feels short when your brain is sizing up the world to other open world type games like fallout or borderlands.

    If you're playing shooters on a console, you're playing them wrong :p

    j/k obviously and I see the points behind criticism, Rage 2 is hardly a masterpiece.

    But going in expecting more Rage I wasn't disappointed. The combat is superb and that's really what matters, to me.
