Danny Dyer Rage 2

Like the idea of Rage 2, but wish the wasteland were a bit more East End? Then have we got a treat for you.

Rage 2 is the sequel nobody really knew they wanted. After a fun but tepidly-received first game, Bethesda surprised everyone with the announcement of Rage 2 around E3 last year.

It’s a very brash and manic wasteland riot, in a Borderlands sense. Given how similar the games are in concept and tone, in a roundabout way – following the recent announcement of Borderlands 3Rage 2 looks like the trendsetter, with Gearbox’s sequel clinging to its coattails.

Do you know something Borderlands 3 won’t have, that Rage 2 definitely does?

Danny. Flipping. Dyer.

Lord Dyer – the direct descendant of Edward Plantagenet, don’t you know – is telly royalty in the UK, beloved for his wideboy charm, off-the-cuff banter, and hilarious outbursts. His voiceover in Rage 2 appears to be directly in this mould.

Called the Diamond Geezer cheat code, you can summon Danny Dyer into your Rage 2 session to wax lyrical over the game’s proceedings. It’s like downloading a cockney voice pack for your sat nav, but with swearing and explosions and murder, rather than roundabouts and traffic lights and safe u-turns.

This might be our second favourite Dyer performance since he weighed in on David Cameron and Brexit:

We can’t confirm whether Dyer will refer to anyone as a “twat” in his voiceover, but it will be nice to imagine the enemies are David Cameron.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
