As the days count down to id Software’s next release, they have given gamers another morsel of gameplay footage to feast their eyes on. Created using the sexy new id Tech 5 engine, Rage looks to take elements from recent post-apocalyptic shooters (most notably Fallout and Borderlands) and wrap them all in a very very pretty shell.
The trailer begins with a showcase of the heavily touted vehicular combat. In a fast and furious (get it?) beginning the viewer is treated to jumps, mini guns and rockets in what looks like a beat-up old F100 with a roll cage. From this speedy section the trailer moves into a large chunk of the shooter gameplay in which a few new tricks, such as a robot AI companion and some environmental interaction, are shown.
From what this trailer shows, Rage is going to be one good looking game. The question is will it be a great gameplay experience or just a tech demo for id’s new graphics engine? Only time will tell.
Rage is due for release on Friday 16 September on PC, 360 and PS3 and is being published by Bethesda Softworks.
