Rage 2 is out now, and it boasts a wide open world for players to explore - and it's filled with secrets too, such as this Pokemon Easter Egg. That's not the only Nintendo game getting referenced however, as we've also discovered a Rage 2 Legend of Zelda Easter Egg too.
The Easter Egg is a little more subtle than the Pokemon message, as it's a specific reference to a popular character in the series. Below we'll show you what the Zelda Easter Egg is, what it means, and exactly where to go to find it. Let's have a look.
Here's where to find the Rage 2 Legend of Zelda Easter Egg
To find the Easter Egg, you'll have to visit the exploration location 'Lost Cause', which is located in the Broken Tract region of Rage 2, and is just south-west of the town of Gunbarrel. It has one Storage Container and one Datapad - the container doesn't matter, but the datapad does.
Just head to the map point below. It's a little up in the mountains, so if you're using a road vehicle you'll have to do a few twists and turns to get there. Try not to get killed on the way.
Once you get to the Lost Cause location, you'll find a little graveyard and a hut. There are no enemies here, so you'll be able to explore at will. Head to the hut, and you'll find the gravedigger dead in a chair, with a Datapad next to him. Examine the Datapad, and it'll reveal his last words, the location of some nearby Feltrite he buried, and his name - Damper.
The name 'Damper' for a gravedigger is clearly a reference to Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series, who has a popular gravedigger character called 'Dampe'. He first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in 1998 and has appeared in several games in the series since, right up to A Link Between Worlds in 2013. Like Rage 2's gravedigger, he also has a little hut, and the habit of dying within his graveyard - which he often haunts.
No word yet on whether Damper's ghost haunts this particular graveyard... but we wouldn't put it past Avalanche and id Software to do that.
