89w ago - Today SCEE's Roland Fauster has shared some hands-on details from ID Software spotlighting Rage for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: When Rage is released this October, it will be the end of a long journey for the game. It has been four years since ID Software first announced their large demo project for their new proprietary ID Tech 5 Engine. Nevertheless, the popularity of the project has never waned.
Two weeks ago at Gamescom, we were finally able to try the game out ourselves at the Bethesda stand and gain our own impression of the exciting FPS/Racing/RPG crossover.
Our gaming session begins right at the start of the game. As one of the few survivors of a meteorite strike, we are fighting our way on foot and in exhilarating dune buggies through an inhospitable world, when we are suddenly attacked by a mutant, and quickly believe we are in a realm of the dead, when a nice, human-looking inhabitant saves us at the last moment. Very friendly! Naturally, we feel indebted and are prepared to carry out some assignments for him.
This means getting rid of deformed mutants from certain buildings, and we do this in classic shoot'em up gameplay fashion, which is really enjoyable, but Rage would only be half as fun if you didn't...
