Can't believe it's finally coming out :bowdown: been waiting for this for a while

This will be the first game to ship with id tech 5, which basically allows designers to paint textures near limitlessly, being limited only by game size budget [25gb, with 20gb texture pack planned for PC] and memory bandwidth.

It will be an open world FPS game with RPG elements, set in a post apocalyptic world [I know, the first game of it's kind :bowdown: ]

This game has been in the works for 6 years by none other than id software, creaters of the FPS genre, makers of commander keen, wolfenstein, doom, and quake. Don't know about you guys, but Quake2 provided some of my best years in gaming.

Most recent previews, read these if you're pessimistic about it being just "another fallout/borderlands"

Did you post the whole game? Will wait for reviews. It looks awesome on graphics but gameplay looks generic.

I'm glad to hear that previews of the game are so positive, but I can't help but feel that it will be another only-guy-who-can-save-the-world-from-the-apocalypse style game. Sure, as far as shooters go these are usually the best kind...but damn.

lol, seems like id and bethesda are having trouble fighting this image of its generic gameplay look, if you read the previews, the gameplay is totally awesome and fresh

Sadly I was hoping for some good MP, but it's supposedly only racing or something like that.

Yeah just racing and co-op :hs:

We'll have to wait for Doom4 for good id style multiplayer. And no, doom4 will not have the crap multiplayer that doom3 had, it will be more reminiscent of older dooms/ mp duke nukem / quake

What kind of coop is it gonna be? Mission based or something like mw2/bf3 ?

Multiplayer
Rage has two multiplayer modes: Combat Rally and Legends of the Wasteland. In Combat Rally, up to six players compete in a free-for-all match that takes place in an arena designed to make use of the vehicles. The objective is to collect rally points that appear around the arena while killing your opponents and stealing their points. Legends of the Wasteland is a series of two-player bonus co-op missions based on stories that you hear about as you play the single player campaign.

Maybe wikipedia is wrong :x:

Looks awesome, in for the coop stuff but wish the whole game could be coop.

So are any of those videos running off console tech? Some of them seemed to be lacking AA and running at a lower res. Then again that could be YouTube compression.

Either way I'm excited to explore this bleak and depressing world, killing everything that gets in my way... :)
