Could RAGE Be Getting some Co-Op DLC?

RAGE came out in October of last year and since then, we haven't heard much about the game.  Reviews were across the board, the versus multiplayer was forgetful, and the co-op mode was average at best.  But new rumors suggest the game might be getting a life injection in the form of some new co-op DLC.  Siliconera reports a new ratings submission to PEGI could have revealed some new content...or a new game.

Wolfenstein, DOOM, QUAKE and now RAGE. Is it worthy?

RAGE Co-Op Review

I’m one of those people that consider id Software to be the father of the modern day shooter. Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake all raised the bar for the genre with their respective releases. Each game had a new 3D engine created by John Carmack that pushed the bounds of technology. After more than six years, we’re finally seeing a brand new game and a brand new engine from the studio. But is RAGE the game and engine to move the genre forward once again like it’s older brothers before him?

Rage Will Ship On 3 Xbox 360 Discs

In a follow up to a story we brought you last monthRage will be shipping on three discs for the Xbox 360.  This comes as no surprise, since the game requires 22 GB of memory if you want to install it on the hard drive.  The Xbox 360's DVD format can only hold a little over 8 GB, so with some simple math... carry the one... adjust for wind... yep.  Three DVD's are required for a 22 GB game.  Remember, the install is completely optional, but it really sounds like you're going to want to install this bad boy.  Time to delete some games!

New RAGE TV Spot is All Style

Hi, folks!  Remember, way back when, where I briefly broke down the structure of some of the different types of game trailers?  It seems like only yesterday when I wrote, "Most (trailers) splice together dynamic gameplay footage and add in some appropriately themed music, tossing in a quote here and there."  This new Rage trailer does exactly that.  It's overflowing with cool stuff backdropped by a pounding track from A Perfect Circle, and yet it somehow manages to tell us nothing about the game.  All I know from this trailer is that I'm supposed to shoot everything while trying not to get squished (:56).  Works for me!

RAGE System Requirements Revealed, First Co-Op Trailer

The system requirements for RAGE on the PC have been revealed and they are surprisingly tame for a game developed by id, a company historically known for pushing graphics technology to its limits.  Perhaps though it shouldn't come as a total surprise for anyone who has seen the game running beautifully and silky smooth on a console.  John Carmack certainly knows how to create 3D engines.

Installing to Your Xbox 360 Will Cost You 22 GB

New RAGE Monster Revealed: Giant Install Requirement

Did you use the Xbox 360 HDD install option for Halo: Reach? If so, then you probably noticed significantly faster load times in exchange for 7 GB of memory. It seems now that the race is on for the most outrageous install memory requirements - L.A. Noire needed just over 18 GB, and RAGE is set to surpass that (as any self-righteous post-apocalyptic thriller should)...

Latest Developer Diary For RAGE Focuses on Art and Sound

I've got another "Rage: Behind the Scenes" video for you today.  This is the final video in the six part series, and it features the sound and art design.  Yep, that is John Goodman as the voice of Dan Hagar.  They also talk about the gutsy feel of the firearms and how they can paint objects at the pixel level.  Fancy.  This video doesn't have a lot of gameplay, but it does have some impressive images and that twangy guitar music I know you all love.  If you want to see it in action sans twang, check out the awesome "Uprising" trailer right here
