As the whole gaming world is anticipating the release of Borderlands 3, the other wasteland shooter game Rage 2 is preparing for the new chapter. Bethesda has announced a new expansion for Rage 2 called Rise of the Ghosts. And it’s coming way sooner than we expected! The expansion will be released on September 26th across all platforms.

Rise of the Ghosts will include a lot of new content for Rage 2 in the form of a new story and a new area to explore. The new zone is called Overgrown City and it will include an old-new Ghost faction that will be familiar to players of the original Rage game.

In their webpage Bethesda wrote:

“The Ghosts were once a terror in the wasteland. Ruthless, vicious, tactical, and cruel, they took what they wanted and left no survivors. Following the Authority Wars, they were nowhere to be found. At the time, many people assumed they had simply been wiped out and they began to fade into wasteland legend. In reality, they had found a higher calling; a strange woman named Iris promised them power and glory if they did everything she said. Iris and the Ghosts fled to the Overgrown City, where for years they underwent intensive brainwashing and were subjected to experiments that left them with powerful and mysterious nanotrite abilities.”

Rise of the Ghosts will also include a new weapon Feltrite Laser Launcher, a new vehicle Ghost Motorcycle and a new ability called Void. The new ability will allow players to suspend their opponents in the air – ragdoll-style – for some easy pick offs.

So, it seems like if the Borderlands 3’s wasteland will fall short, by the end of the month we’ll have a proper alternative to dive into. Rage 2 Rise of the Ghosts will require you to have the base game in order to play, be sure to check our price for it.
