Pants are for chumps.
The latest RAGE developer diary focuses on the Wasteland, a giant plate that the game world sits on. (They're words, not mine). This video covers some of the characters, multiplayer car combat, the environments, and they even mention co-op. The car combat and environments are looking pretty sweet. The co-op, which we haven't seen yet, refers to the "Legends of the Wasteland" mode. This will allow two players, either online or locally, to battle through re-vamped single player missions. Unfortunately, there won't be any driving elements in these co-op sessions. At least that's what id Software Creative Director Tim Willits told me when I spoke with him at E3.
You can expect to play RAGE on October 4th.
