Rage Running Well On All Platforms, Nets Release Date
id Software decided to give us a release date for Rage at QuakeCon 2010 and although it's a ways off, the game still looks incredible.
As many sources are reporting, the developers showed off all three versions of their highly anticipated title at the show, and they're all currently running at a silky smooth 60 frames per second. Primarily PC developers, it should come as no surprise that it looked best on the PC but it's clearly noted that both console versions look awesome. The release date? It's September 13, 2011 for all three platforms in North America; Europe will get it a couple days later, which may seem a little late...after all, we first heard about Rage three years ago at the 2007 QuakeCon. But hey, you need to get these things right, you know? And we imagine that in order to get their new engine - id Tech 5 - running properly on all three consoles (one of which being very different in terms of architecture), the extra time was necessary. The details tell us the game isn't just your standard FPS and if you're not convinced, check out our preview. We can't wait to give it a shot.
Only one small caveat: who knows what the competition will be like by next September? What if it had to butt heads with Uncharted 3 and Grand Theft Auto V...? Sometimes, it can be a bad thing if games take too long...just look at Alpha Protocol.
