Bethesda has revealed that Rise of the Ghosts, the first item of downloadable content for Rage 2, will be released on September 26.
Relaying the news on its website, the publisher said: “The Ghosts will rise on September 26. An old threat has returned to haunt the wasteland once again in Rage 2’s first major expansion. Explore a brand-new region, face a lethal new faction, and gain access to a new weapon and ability in Rise of the Ghosts.”
Bethesda filled in the Ghosts’ back-story: “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.”
Bethesda detailed the various elements that Rise of the Ghosts will bring: “Now they’re ready to reclaim their place in the wasteland. Under the watchful eyes of Iris, the Ghosts will prove to be a formidable new foe for Ranger Walker. He’ll need to navigate a huge new region called the Overgrown City and put a stop to their uprising before the Ghosts can gain a foothold in the wasteland. Luckily, he’ll have the new Void ability and the Feltrite Laser Launcher to add to his already-impressive arsenal. Rise of the Ghosts also introduces the new Ghost Motorcycle to the game, which players will be able to find in the Overgrown City and bring back to their Garage.”
Rise of the Ghosts will be available on all platforms at a cost of 1,500 Rage Coins (which equates to £11.98). Although it is included free in the Digital Deluxe Edition of Rage 2, to which you can upgrade from the base edition for 2,000 Rage Coins (£15.97). For more information, head to the Rage 2 website.
