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.
