Hello friends,

so watching this preview. many people are missing this game due to being sequel to underwelmingly Rage and some are comparing it to borderlands and didnot liked avalanche previous games. but i think people will surprise when game will release. because the combat and movement looks so so amazing. even previews make it like its best part of game.

remember before the release of Doom 2016. the slow E3 gameplay footage released than MP beta and many people lost interest after that. and basing that based on MP beta when its all about SP.

now, Rage 2 is not in many peoples radar due to reason i mention above. but after release many people will surprise.

I think its going to be sleeper hit of 2019. gameplay looks super fun imo.

what do you think? will it be sleeper hit? lets discuss

No. That title belongs to Crackdown 3. Absolutely superb game that clearly came out of nowhere.

i kind of get what he means. there's a lot of apathy towards rage 2 after its lacklustre predecessor. it's not a low profile game but it's not one the community have been crying out for either. anecdotally i've seen very little from bethesda or id promoting the game, so if it gets a particularly good reception from gamers it could could be seen as a sleeper hit. maybe

Sleeper hit? Rocket League is what a sleeper hit looks like.

Demon's Souls was a sleeper hit, Sniper. And you don't have any friends.

I think it looks like a lot of fun and I'll even install Bethesda's launcher to play it, without complaint (well maybe without complaint). One thing is absolutely certain though, Rage II is about as much a sleeper hit as Doom.

Doom 2016 was the game people expecting it to be crap. it got most negative reviews on steam prior to release based on beta. then it become most praised game on steam too. quickly after released. and thats why Doom Eternal is most hype games for many.

Rage 2 can follow same track.

New Dawn Flopped in sales and looked a lot like Rage 2 was cheaper and on steam.

It doesn't look great for Rage 2

there is a huge difference between far cry and id software movement plus shooting.

far cry new dawn looks like failure written all over it plus people are sick of far cry.

No, it was fun. Cool enemies and weapons to shoot them with. The main thing I didn't like about it (besides the texture pop-in problem) was that it ended quickly and abruptly.

RAGE 2 looks cool as well. Not sure about the open world though. And the driving part doesn't look super fun..

In other words it lacks everything that makes Borderlands a fun game.

I don't recall people hating on Doom at all, apart from the inevitable troll hating that your threads appear to attract.

A sleeper hit is a game that comes out of nowhere, with no previews or advertising, to take the gaming world by storm.

Anything with the Bethesda logo on it will never be a sleeper hit.

5 and 6m is nice sell figure to warrant a sequel.

not every game needed 10m sales.

It does, but I suspect like Borderlands or most Avalanche titles it will get repetitive long before the finishing line is reached.

I just think all of the mechanics are too simplistics... best selling games always have more than just a few gimmicks IMO even if it's not apparent at first glance....

Even games with really no redeeming value like Eve online sell well because they manage that much... and I would argue those aren't even mechanics just additional layers...

I rather enjoy the straightofrward games though so hopefully someone can find the right point where different parties are satisfied.

I dunno man. They better add a BR mode, make it FTP, and lose that mature rating pronto to become a sleeper hit. Fortnite and Apex came out of nowhere and those suckers make billions.
