Bethesda calls it "the most insane open-world shooter you've ever played."

Rage 2, an open-world first-person shooter, has been officially unveiled on stage at Bethesda's press conference at the E3 gaming show.

It's a sequel to the 2011 original. Like that title, the new installment mixes frenetic gun combat and "drive anything" combat racing -- think Mad Max meets Doom, or Bulletstorm crossed with Far Cry.

Musician Andrew WK kicked off the announcement with a full-length song. In kicking off the unveiling, Bethesda global senior vice president Pete Hines joked that they were following up on the original reveal from Walmart Canada -- making reference to last month's leak that tipped the existence of the game.

Rage 2 is slated to be released in spring 2019.

Here's everything else announced at the Bethesda press conference.
