The game maintains the plot of the classic Rampage games. It's about 3 people, George, a middle-aged man, Lizzie, a young woman, and Ralph, an elderly man, who all work for ScumLabs, a company that specializes in the effects of radiation. However, when the radiation plant malfunctions, George, Lizzie, and Ralph are all exposed to radiation, turning them into monsters (George is now a King-Kong-like Gorilla, Lizzie is a Godzilla-like dinosaur, and Ralph is now a giant Wolfman). While there minds have been reduced to savage beasts, they do maintain some memories of their human form. The monsters then go on a rampage of destruction to shut down Scumlabs once and for all.
GameplayThe game is the first 3-D open-world Rampage game, unlike the previous games which were side-scrolling destruction games. You can choose up to 3 monsters to play as: George, Lizzie, or Ralph. There are 27 missions in total in the story mode. One of them has you trying to tear down structures that are owned by Scumlabs, and another has you having to fight a giant robot trying to stop you. That is a boss battle. There are 4 open-world cities in total: New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Shanghai. Being a monster, you can destroy absolutely EVERYTHING in the city. You can tear down buildings, destroy cars, and generally cause mass carnage.
Like the original game, you can eat fleeing people to restore your health if you're damaged or dying. There is also a variety of objects you can collect ScumLabs canisters to unlock bonus content, such as the original Rampage game and Rampage: World Tour. You can also unlock concept art, trailers, and behind the scenes featurettes on how the game was made. The destruction effects from buildings and cars were done using the Clover Engine 3.0, the most realistic destruction engine to date. Be warned, the military will come after you in most missions. And in free roam, smash lots of stuff and the Military Response Team will come after you. Fight them off, and then continue your path of destruction.
Each monster has its own special attack. George can unleash a sonic roar that will destroy everything in front of him, Lizzie can breathe fire and burn down buildings and vehicles, and Ralph can regenerate health faster than the other 2 monsters. Plus, there is also a variety of Challenge missions, with which if you get a medal on any of them, you can unlock extra points to upgrade George, Lizzie, or Ralph. You can unlock Radiation Points from destroying things and completing challenge missions to upgrade your monster's health, speed, strength, special attack power, and you can use them to unlock more powerful attacks.
