The release of RAGE 2 is just 10 days away and publisher Bethesda has started to promote the title in earnest. A particularly alluring promotion for an ex-Dreamcast owner like me is the RAGE 2 custom-PC in a Dreamcast chassis giveaway on Twitter. Bethesda has also divulged the PC minimum and recommended specs for you to check over.

To recap, if you haven't heard of RAGE 2, this game is an FPS game described by the designers as "a carnival of carnage where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything". As well as combat on foot, the game appears to feature extensive vehicular-based combat sequences.

RAGE 2 is a co-development between "Avalanche Studios, masters of open world insanity, and id Software, creators of the first-person shooter" so this post-asteroid-apocalypse wasteland shooter has a lot of pedigree to live up to.

I've tabulated the minimum and recommended PC specs which were recently shared on the official Steam page, below:



  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system

  • OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X

  • Memory: 8GB RAM

  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1070 8GB or AMD Vega 56 8GB

  • Storage: 50 GB available space

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system

  • OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3570 or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X

  • Memory: 8GB RAM

  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780 3GB or AMD R9 280 3GB

  • Storage: 50 GB available space


There are additional visual features available for customising your experience:

  • FOV Slider (50 to 120 degrees)
  • Show HUD (on/off)
  • Reticle Style (default/simple/none)
  • Motion Blur (on/off)
  • Depth of Field (on/off)
  • Ultra-wide (21:9) and Super Ultra-wide (32:9) display support (PC)

RAGE 2 Dreamcast

The alluring Sega Dreamcast design lives again. Bethesda hired some custom PC makers to stuff a PC valued at $590 into a cool black Dreamcast eSports edition shell and add the lurid RAGE 2 logo on top.

Bethesda is giving away this custom PC to one lucky Twitter follower and re-Tweeter on 6th May, so there's still time to participate today or at the weekend. A follow-up photo, as reproduced below, made it clear this isn't a Dreamcast port of RAGE 2 but an HDMI connected PC.

You can now pre-order the game on PC (Steam or Bethesda.net), or for Xbox One or PlayStation 4. RAGE 2 launches on 14th May.

Hmm I'm special.
Ray tracing and HDR aren't part of the deal. Shame
Am I missing something ? what has the Sega Dreamcast got to do with the Rage Franchise ?
Hexus, as a predominantly UK site, it's not smart to promote a competition that can only have US and Canada entrants…
