Rage heads to replication

Written by David Stellmack

Will be released on October 4th
The news is now official that the latest game from id Software known as Rage has finally headed toward replication and manufacturing, now that initial development is completed. The game that was first shown at Quakecon back in August 2007 appears to now be finally confirmed for release on October 4th (October 7th in the U.K.) by Bethesda.

The title has been delayed multiple times; although id Software never really said anything beyond that it would ship when it was finished. The game is a first person shooter with elements of driving in a number of different types of environments. The game features the latest id engine known as id Tech 5.

Early reports have been quite positive for the game despite the long development cycle. Rage could be the game that vaults id Software right back to the top. The game is being released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The iOS version of the game called Rage HD was released for that platform, as well.

Originally, a Mac version for Rage was also planned to be released, but as of right now the release of a Mac version seems to be in limbo while id Software continues to prepare for the release of the other version. As far as we are aware, id has yet to officially cancel the Mac version, but it certainly will not make the October 4th launch; it will likely be released at a later date at some point in the future.

Cannot wait!

Fallout + Borderlands = Rage.

Id's forte has always been making cutting edge engines. If this game is fun to play it will be nice, but I am more interested in the games that will use the new engine.

However, given the retarding influence consoles have had of the development of new engines, I am not sanguine.

The game's textures are stunning! That and the projected 60 fps would be awesome. Hope the gameplay is as good.

The game has been in development for around 6 years. So saying that it copied Borderlands or Fallout would be wrong in away. Those games were able to come out early.

Rage sounds promising, but what I really want is Doom 4!
