With Rage being id’s first new IP in 14 years, you’d need to bring the goods, right? Well, the firm didn’t just bring them, it brought the house down at the same time.
The game was one of four titles shown by Bethesda during pre-E3 events held by the company in Las Vegas and France for journalists in the past couple of weeks.
Get rounded up of what people have seen from the events here.

Fallout: New Vegas was one of Bethesda’s biggest titles shown in the past couple of weeks to press in Nevada and France. For what it’s worth, we agree with what seems to be the consensus so far: it looks awesome.
Get rounded up after the break.

We came, we saw, we conquered.
We were in France last week, just outside Paris, to see some of Bethesda’s future titles for this and next year, such as Rage, Fallout: New Vegas, Brink and Hunted: The Demon’s Forge.
We spoke, drank and watched games throughout the two-day event, all for you. Get everything below.

Here’s a fun fact: did you know Hunted: The Demon’s Forge has a hybrid of a spider and a scorpion? You do now!

Brink writer Ed Stern has told VG247 that a second collaboration from Splash Damage and id Software is never off the table, but insisted the studio is purely focused on upcoming FPS, Brink.

Anyone on the edge of their seats on possible Brink DLC plans may want to move back an inch or two: developer Splash Damage is saying nowt.

Splash Damage boss Paul Wedgwood has told VG247 that super-shooter Brink will reward selfless players in co-op games.

Chris Avellone, lead designer for Fallout: New Vegas, has told VG247 that players wanting a bit of a challenge in the game should look no further than its Hardcore Mode.

Brink is downright fucking awesome. We know because we saw it at a pre-E3 Bethesda event outside Paris last week.
The demo was split into two, showing us one part of the story as Security and one as Resistance, with the game’s impressive scale of customisation shown off in-between.
Needless to say, “downright fucking awesome”.
After the demo was shown, we spoke to Splash Damage CEO Paul Wedgwood. His interview took place a day after we chatted with Brink writer Ed Stern. You can get his talk here.

Ever since its reveal before E3 last year, Splash Damage’s Brink has been firmly on the core’s radar. It’s aiming to be one of the biggest action titles of this year, pairing up with fellow Bethesda-published title Fallout: New Vegas this fall.
In one of two interviews with Splash Damage, we spoke to the game’s writer Ed “BongoBoy” Stern in Paris last week at Bethesda’s pre-E3 event, asking about the possible future of the series, another potential team-up with id Software and lots more.
The all-new demo we saw in in France last week was show-stopping. Don’t even think about not buying this game when it releases.
We also spoke to SD’s CEO Paul Wedgwood about the game. Get that here.

id Software’s Tim Willits has told VG247 that Rage on Xbox 360 will ship with two DVDs.

Brink. You must buy it when it releases. It’s an instabuy. These new shots back our case.
Tue, May 04, 2010 | 16:36 BST
The glitz and glamour of Las Vegas: Fallout style. All summed up in these new shots.
Tue, May 04, 2010 | 16:27 BST
Update: New shots here.
Original: When Fallout: New Vegas was announced at a London event back in April 2009, folks nearly broke the internet. Fairly popular, is Fallout.
All anyone knew back then was that it wasn’t a sequel to Fallout 3, it was a multi-platform title, and Obsidian was set to develop it.
Earlier this year, Bethesda and Obsidian released a teaser video giving a glimpse at the game’s world without providing any concrete information.
Thankfully, last week, Bethesda decided to relent and held a pre-E3 event just outside Paris, showing-off the game to invited press outlets.
While there, VG247 was given the opportunity to speak with Chris Avellone, lead designer for Obsidian’s Alpha Protocol and senior designer on Fallout: New Vegas, where he explained to us what exactly makes New Vegas stand-out from its predecessor.
Since New Vegas is following so closely on the heels of Fallout 3, couldn’t it as easily have been used as DLC for the title?
What you find out, may surprise you.

Bethesda’s outed five new shots of Rage. They’re amazing. Get them after the break.
Tue, May 04, 2010 | 18:45 BST
id Software creative director Tim Willits has revealed to VG247 that Rage won’t make 2010, and will now release next year.
Tue, May 04, 2010 | 18:44 BST
Tim Willits is serious business. The id Software lead designer was a co-owner, joining the developer’s original team in 1995 after impressing with DOOM levels he’d created in his spare time. Fifteen years on, he’s focused on RAGE, the FPS-driving hybrid set to be the firm’s first release since being bought by Zenimax last year.
One-on-ones with Willits don’t happen every day. After a look at a new demo, we were lucky enough to get the opportunity last week in France, grilling him on id Tech 5 licensing, RAGE’s economy, the reason for the game’s slip to 2011 and how many discs you’ll be juggling with the 360 version.
The best-looking game ever? New shots here. Hit the drop for the full chat.

Splash Damage CEO Paul Wedgwood has admitted that RAGE is quite possibly “one of the best-looking games” he’s ever seen.
