Why can't I add a new car to the garage?
The game may not allow you to take such a step if the delivered car is the property of another person who is not an opponent. These include vehicles in cities or other places where friendly people reside. You can travel around with the cars found in this way, but the game will not allow you to put them in the garage, so that they may become the property of the protagonist. To add your car in the garage you need to find an abandoned vehicle in the game world.
Are there dogs in the game world?
Yes, but not exactly. You may encounter mutant dogs, and in such situations you have to defeat them. Unfortunately, there are no natural dogs so you don't have any option to pat or caress such animals.

Can you change the in-game language?
Yes, Rage 2 has the option to use another language. Open the main menu and go to the general settings. You can choose separate languages for the text and the audio.
Does Rage 2 have photo mode?
Yes, the game does have a Photo Mode. Pause the game and select the right option. You can choose from various settings and filters - use them to modify your photo before you save it.
Does Rage 2 have a character creator?
No, the game doesn't offer a character creator. However, you can choose the gender of your character. This decision is purely cosmetic - it doesn't affect, e.g. solutions of some quests. Rage 2 also has the option to customize the appearance of your vehicle and weapons. Some skins are available right from the beginning while others must be unlocked or purchased (they cost quite a lot).
Can you save in Rage 2?
Yes, Rage 2 has the option to save the game manually. Besides them, the game also creates automatic saves.
Open the pause menu to save the game manually. Remember, if you are in the middle of a story mission, the game will save your progress done until the last checkpoint. This limitation doesn't affect free exploration. When you load a save, you will start the game in the same place where you have stopped playing last time.
Does Rage 2 have multiplayer?
No, Rage 2 is focused only on the single-player mode. There are no online modes nor co-operation.
Can I start exploring the world right away?
Yes but you have to complete the prologue first - the first story mission called The Ranger. By completing this mission you get a vehicle called Phoenix. From now on you can travel around the world. Pay attention to levels displayed whenever you enter a location. Places that have 5-10 difficulty level can be very challenging for beginners.
Why can't I open the world map?
The world map can be accessed after the prologue - The Ranger mission. Don't worry that you can open it - the entire prologue takes place in a single location. You won't get lost.
Is Junk useful for anything in the game?
No, Junk can only be sold. You can do that by visiting any of the vendors. Speak to a merchant and open the tab in which you can choose items from your inventory. The best way to sell junk is to sell them in bulk (20 pieces).
Don't sell other items found during explorations, e.g. various components. They are useful in crafting. The only exception is when your inventory is full.
Does Rage 2 have Denuvo?
No, Denuvo has been removed by the developers. However, it was present in day one version. You don't have to worry that you will get fps drops or long loading times caused by this anti-tamper technology.

RAGE 2 Video Game
- genre: Action
- developer: Avalanche Studios
- publisher: Bethesda Softworks
- platform: PC, PS4, XONE
RAGE 2 is a sequel to the first-person shooter developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks in 2011. The new game was made in cooperation with Avalanche Studios (the creators of the Mad Max and Just Cause series).
Similarly to the previous entry in the series, RAGE 2 takes the player on a journey through the post-apocalyptic Earth, ruined by an asteroid. The survivors were forced to live under the tyranny of the Authority led by General Cross. The general is doing whatever he can to kill everyone who comes from Arcs – special vaults in which selected individuals could survive the apocalypse. The players assume the role of Walker – the last Guardian from Vineland. He is trying to stop Cross’ plans from realization.
RAGE 2 features a vast, open world that consists of deserts known from the previous game, remains of an old civilization, post-apocalyptic cities and settlements, swamps, and jungles. Like in the first RAGE, the map can be traversed on foot or by using various vehicles.
In addition to exploration, the gameplay features elimination of hordes of enemies with a variety of guns. The players can modify their weapons in order to increase their combat potential. Walker can also use special skills provided by implants called the Nanotrites. They enable the protagonist to perform deadly attacks like a ground hit or an energy surge that throws away all nearby adversaries. As the players progress through the game, the protagonist learns how to implement the implants into weapons – after filling a special bar and activating the Overdrive mode the weapon is dealing more damage, it gains new parameters and Walker’s health begins to regenerate.
