Rage 2 Twitter Makes Fun of Far Cry: New Dawn

Rage 2 Twitter Makes Fun of Far Cry: New Dawn

Moving forward in 2019, two of the biggest name releases are Rage 2 and Far Cry: New Dawn. Each of these games have their own spot on several gamers’ most anticipated lists, but it’s worth highlighting that these games do seem similar in a number of ways. For example, both games are set in a post-apocalyptic world and heavily favor the color pink.

Because of this fact, Rage 2 took to Twitter for a lighthearted jabbing at Far Cry: New Dawn. Revealing that new gameplay would be coming next week, Rage 2 also posted a picture that changes up the cover art of Far Cry: New Dawn. This new image sees two Rage characters instead of Far Cry‘s twin antagonists, Mickey and Lou, take the fore. Furthermore, the title has been twisted to read as “Rage 2 Newer Dawn,” which likely elicited a few chuckles from those who saw it.

It doesn’t end there, though. In a response, the official Far Cry New Dawn Twitter account took the opportunity to call attention to its new story trailer, and Rage 2 wasn’t having it. In a glib, tongue-in-cheek response, Rage 2 said, “Oh sweet. The game looks great!” Posted alongside this was the classic Spider-Man accusing Spider-Man meme, clearly hinting at the similarities of the two, as well as the hashtag #OnWednesdaysWeWearPink.

This banter was likely a reason many checked out the new story trailer and are excited for the upcoming Rage 2 gameplay. After all, when two developers can have fun and take shots at each other like this, it can be a well-needed boost for the gaming community as a whole.

Of course, the comments were full of those taking sides, sharing their belief on which game would be better. There’s no predicting the quality of either yet, but one major point of contention for some was Rage 2 being exclusive to the Bethesda Launcher. Whether this impacts the game’s popularity or sales remains to be seen, but both Rage 2 and Far Cry New Dawn ultimately look promising.

Rage 2 is scheduled to launch on May 14, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
