id's Tim Willits Previews Rage
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
The Escapist has posted a new preview of Rage, id Software's upcoming combination of first person shooter and action racing title. The preview provides comments from id's Tim Willits about the game's post-apocalyptic setting and action elements.
What's most striking about Rage is not necessarily the technology behind it, which, admittedly is pretty impressive. According to id, their "Tech 5" allows them to hand-draw entirely customized worlds and present them at insane framerates. But what's most arresting about Rage isn't the evolution of the technology, it's the evolution of the genre. Rage isn't the kind of shooter one would expect from id. It has NPCs, dialogue trees, an explorable world, vehicles, custom ammunition - all the trappings of an RPG. Rage is the most un-shootery shooter id has ever made - which may be just what the doctor ordered.Read more at the page linked below.

"One of the great things about Rage is that any way you want to play the game - you can take as much time as you want exploring the wasteland," says Willits. "You can explore different corners, you can find bandits, there's lots of unique things to do around the wasteland. But if you're the type of player that just wants to move through the narrative and complete all the missions, you're more than welcome to do that. There's a lot of replayability and areas to explore within the Rage universe."
