id Software on Friday unveiled their latest first person shooter. Rage will pit players against an oppressive government in a post-apocalyptic world. The new game will make use of id's latest Tech 5 game engine, and will feature expansive outdoor environments as well as plenty of enemies to blast.
Everybody knows we're going to do a good job with the run and gun action stuff...but we are branching out," explained Carmack, who noted id's love for a Road Warrior-esque post-apocalyptic atmosphere. Rage will be released for Mac OS X, Windows, XBox 360, and PlayStation 3. A specific release date for the game is not yet available.
A trailer for the title showcased driving and expansive outdoor areas in addition to id's traditional shooting elements. Shacknews editor Chris Remo described both the character models and the environment as incredibly detailed, complete with good facial animation on NPCs and impressive detail on a small fly.
The company estimates that the single-player game--which has players driving across an open world from settlement to settlement fighting mutants, monsters and the government--will take roughly 20 hours to complete. Players will be able to customize their vehicles throughout the game, as well as engage in co-op multiplayer with a friend.
