id Software's upcoming first-person shooter has had the attention of gamers for a while. That's partially because of their historic and praiseworthy history with the genre - a history that includes Wolfenstein 3D
, which started the genre in the first place. They also later went on to create the DOOM
series. So when id Software is making a new FPS, usually people listen.
Their next title, RAGE
, is set in a post-apocalyptic world not dissimilar to Bethesda's (RAGE
's publisher) Fallout
games. After an asteroid struck Earth in 2029, what's left of the world is now overrun by anarchy and warring factions. While the story seems to be very compelling, what good is it without great gameplay?
Check out the new Gearhead Vault gameplay video below and see if RAGE
's world is one worth fighting for.
You can join in on the fight when RAGE
releases on October 4th in North America and on October 7th across Europe.
