Bathesda Softworks released an in-game teaser of all the goodies you will score, once you pre-order the upcoming shooter: RAGE. The pre-order will grant you an upgrade to the Anarchy Edition, which includes the following in-game items:
The Crimson Elite armor
A double-barrel shotgun
Rat Rod buggy
The Fists of Rage melee weapon
Interested? RAGE is scheduled for October 4th, 2011
As shocking as it might sound, RAGE will actually take up to 8GB of your PS3 hard drive! id Software revealed in an interview for Eurogamer that Rage will require an 8GB install, an enormous install we haven’t seen since Gran Turismo 5, while the Xbox 360 version is settled for a 3 disc release (which can, in theory, be installed to the HDD… with all of it’s 22 GBs of data).
Bethesda released a new RAGE gameplay video – ‘Wasteland Legends: Water Service’. Get the first look at RAGE’s co-op mode as the Shrouded clan come to Wellspring to destroy the town’s water supply and two warriors join forces to fight off the invasion. It’s up to a duo of heroes to disarm bombs, take out bandits and save the town once again.
I somehow had overlooked that there would be co-op in Rage, but this adds to my excitement for the game.
Rage is scheduled for an October 4th release.
I’m not sure how I missed this one a couple weeks ago, but here is the final video in the six part behind-the-scenes series for RAGE. “In “The Sound and Art,” take a look at the sound design of RAGE with the team at id Software to find out how music, sound effects and voice acting come together to create an unforgettable, immersive experience.”
RAGE features intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech™ 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more. RAGE promises an experience like no other.
RAGE is slated for release on October 4th, 2011.
In an interview for Eurogamer, Rage creative director Tim Willits spoke of locking out some single-player content for people who bought the game used:
We have the first-time buyer stuff with all the sewers hatches, If you bought the game new, that would be open for you. You still have to download it, but you don’t have to pay for it. Those hatches are all over. Most people never find them. But as soon as you do, you’re like, oh. And then you start to look for it. That’s our first-time buyer incentive.
In simple words, Rage will not require an online Pass to unlock the multiplayer mode (that would be a code that comes with new copies, or bought online for a fee). Instead, used copies of Rage will lock some sewers hatches in the single-player campaign which are the paths needed to enter new missions in the campaign and a “thank you” to players who bought a new copy of Rage!
Rage is set to launch on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 4 2011.
