Not much has been revealed about the story behind id Software’s Rage just yet. Sure, we know what the gameplay is going to be like- it’s a first person shooter combined with an arcade racer, set in a postapocalyptic future. Some footage that debuted at Quake Con last year shows that it’s one goddamn beautiful game, with everything you could hope for in a Road Warrior-style setting. Insane desert dwellers, twisted mutants, guns and melee weapons, fast and brutal car combat… all it needs is a gyrocopter, and a little annoying kid with a boomerang. (“Ahhh!”)
They’ve just launched a teaser site for the game that has started to show off some of the plot. It’s a little bit of an interactive game, check it out at http://www.aftertheimpact.com.
There’s not too much up there yet but every two days the story will expand on the site, and more will be revealed. Expect Rage to hit sometime next year.
