Id Software has lifted the veil on RAGE’s super-soldier antagonists, the Authority, ahead of a more complete E3 reveal.
Thu, May 05, 2011 | 21:05 BST
After hinting around about it for quite some time, id Software’s creative director Tim Willits has confirmed that the PC version of RAGE will ship with a full set of modding and level design tools this September.

If it weren’t for Zenimax, we’d probably be playing RAGE right now.
But we sure as hell wouldn’t be enjoying it.

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.

id Software boss Tim Willits has told VG247 that RAGE’s first DLC will hit soon after the shooter’s release, and that ongoing development of the new IP is being structured to allow “other platform games, sequels and prequels.”

RAGE is id’s first – and apparently only – new IP in quite some time, and the developer’s doing it up in style. Yeah, the post-apocalyptic shooter/driver/toy car driver’s got it all – even its own release date. No more teasing, no more “when it’s done,” no more fooling us into staring into Todd Hollenshead’s dreamy blue eyes until we forget what we were talking about. With RAGE, we’re witnessing the emergence of a new id Software, one that’s not afraid to hunker down and commit.
And we can see why. When you’re able to demo your game on three night-and-day different platforms side-by-side, you’re clearly doing something right. With more than a year to go before launch, though, there’s still plenty more to discuss. Is the release date really set in stone? How about multiplayer? Are dedicated servers in or out? What happens if John Carmack goes into space and explodes? We asked RAGE creative director Tim Willits all those questions and more, and he tolerated our shenanigans to the point that we’re pretty sure he wasn’t lying to us!
Check out the interview after the break!

id Software’s creative director Tim Willits has revealed that Rage will get a conclusive ending, but doors will be left open for the IP’s future.
Wed, May 05, 2010 | 10:42 BST
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.

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.

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

id Software creative director Tim Willits has revealed to VG247 that Rage won’t make 2010, and will now release next year.

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.

Deserty epic Rage is to have money, weird boomerang things and “recipes” used for creating items, id boss Tim Willit’s told NowGamer.
“Rage… has an economy where you are allowed to choose how you spend your money earned through combat and racing,” said the exec.
“You might decide you love the wingstick (a boomerang-cum-shuriken weapon) and stock up on them, or you may feel inclined to purchase parts to build more sentry bots or to keep your armour upgraded and repaired.”
Recipes? All true.
“We’re not quite ready to divulge every engineering item, but the system is one of the things we are most excited about,” Willits added when asked about the game’s custom weaponry system.
“Through your relationships with characters in the game you earn recipes over time. Then you buy, loot, or receive as rewards the different ingredients that each recipe calls for.”
Rage, id’s first original IP sionce Quake, releases next year via EA.
