Rage: Dead City Trailer is Full of Tentacles, Slime but Not Considered Hentai


id Software seems to be the developer that pushes the envelope when it comes to graphics, and after watching the latest trailer for Rage, it looks like that envelope just got shoved across the room.

Rage is a “directed open world” post-apocalyptic game that resembles the Fallout series in terms of setting and design, but the broad comparisons stop there. I loved both Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, but the graphics technology of Rage make both those games look like last generation entries. Not only does it look good, but as evident in the trailer, its unique combination of vehicular and FPS game play should help it to stand apart from rest of the pack. The diversity of combat (I saw a sentry turret, shot gun and bladed throwing weapon utilized in the trailer’s fight) should make for some interesting scenarios.

I was excited about this game, but now I’m super-stoked (a more concentrated level of excitement). It comes out on September 13th, 2011 and since my birthday is on the 10th I expect to find this included with the other gifts sent to me by my Wizardtrainiacs out there in internet land.
