id Software has long been considered the originator of the first-person shooter genre by many, and this accolade is something the developer doesn’t take lightly.
As the forerunner of the genre with hallowed titles such as DOOM, Quake, and Wolfenstein on its resume, the firm decided it wanted to take shooters to the next level by elevating and expanding the gameplay experience. Thus, the idea of RAGE was born, and the developers – long known as the darlings of the PC world – built a new engine, ID Tech 5, in order to bring the shooter to not only the PC crowd but consoles as well.
During the Eurogamer Expo last week, id Software gave a presentation of RAGE, showing off loads of post-apocalyptic shooter, which is filled with scenic vistas; more weapons than Mad Max ever dreamt of; an engaging story; and plenty of vehicular manslaughter.
The developer plans to fully support RAGE post-release with downloadable content, which is good news, but as far as what gamers can expect in terms of multiplayer and co-op, well, everyone will have to wait until next year to find out what id has in store on that front.
Tim Willits, the creative director for the game along with senior producer Jason Kim were on-hand after the presentation to chat with VG247 a bit regarding the title, and you can read what all they had to tell us below.
