Rage 2 is one of the most unexpected sequels to be announced in a while. Both Id Software and Avalanche Studios are responsible for the upcoming open-world first-person shooter; the talent on both sides certainly helps. Avalanche Studios has years of experience crafting large and chaotic worlds in its games, with vehicle combat and special effects being a bit of its specialty as of late. On the other hand, Id Software is well-capable of making fantastic first-person shooters.

The highly successful strategy series from the Creative Assembly and Sega finally will finally return this month with Total War: Three Kingdoms. Set just prior to China's Three Kingdom's period in the 14th century, the game takes you through the quintessential historical conflict often depicted in popular film and games. Featuring two distinct game modes, Romance mode plays off the supernatural character tropes defined in the classic novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, while Classic is more focused on realistic warfare akin to what you've seen in previous mainline entries of the series.
