While the first RAGE came with multiplayer, there are no plans for it in the second, according to id Software. However, it was revealed at QuakeCon that RAGE 2 won't be an entirely solo experience... just not in the way most would like. Or even want.

As part of today's E3 press event, Bethesda revealed footage of Avalanche-developed post-apocalpytic shooter sequel, Rage 2.
Apple is one of the largest technology companies in the world. The iPhone has an install base of over 700 million people. And yet the company has always had a fraught relationship to gaming. Mac users know the pain of needing to run alternate operating systems to play popular PC games well.
In a new facebook post, one of the creators of Doom, John Carmack, shared some of his own experiences interacting with the late Steve Jobs that helps shed more light on why that was the case.
After a week of teasing, viral leaking, and marketing plans, today it's finally official: Rage is getting a sequel.
Dealing with gamer rage can be tricky. No matter what you do, sometimes you'll just end up with someone on your team who happens to be a giant arsehole. And it gets even worse if you're a professional gamer. One Australian Counter-Strike player, who'd already received death threats after his team had lost matches, ended up quitting social media entirely just to shield himself.
But even if you're not flying overseas for tournaments, it can often be difficult just to have a bit of fun without a torrent of abuse being flung your way. So what's the best way to deal with that? Dr Michael Martin, a sports psychologist who has worked with the League of Legends team for Legacy Esports, has a few ideas.
It's a known fact that in any competitive online game, if you win a match you're going to be called a hacker at some point. It's a crutch for some, shifting the burden of the loss off of them. It wasn't their fault, after all: the playing field wasn't level.
But most accusations of hacking are unfounded rage. And when you consistently get called a hacker, this might be one of the best ways to respond.
Riot put out a new patch for League of Legends this week -- an occasion that the game's legions of fans always await with bated breath. Anticipation curdled into disappointment once players realised the developer had made some unwelcome changes that could have a profound impact on one of the competitive multiplayer game's key team positions: the jungler.
Well, this is certainly one way to deal with gamer rage. Martin "AmbossTV" Rabl has a habit of getting mad at Fifa 15. A little too mad. As someone who suffers from the occasional bout of flailing, wailing gamer rage, I can identify. Rabl's solution? A shock collar -- yes, the kind intended to keep dogs from barking -- that gives him a quick jolt when he gets too loud. It looks... uncomfortable.
Sometime during the weekend, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood stopped working for some players. Given the game's popularity -- it's currently the number one free game on iTunes -- it's probably not surprising that some fans got miffed that their game time was interrupted. Even so, getting death threats over something like this is kind of ridiculous.
I never could get all that excited about Rage (this was at least partly due to that terrible name), but I did appreciate how good it often looked. Especially those nice, oddly bulbous character models -- not everyone liked them, but I did.
