My friend has been telling me about Rage for quite sometime. I checked their site one day and with no real information on it at the time I wasn’t impressed with the images of desert that had me assuming that a lot of sand was in my future. At PAX East the people were packed in to see a gameplay demonstration and I still wasn’t exactly sure how I felt.
I then seen this video of the game in action and I am pleasantly surprised with this game. I mean Bethesda and id Software had their hands in this title so I didn’t have a lot of doubt. Watching the gameplay it reminds me of a much more realistic looking Borderlands, with much mature gameplay and a more realistic adventure in general (enemies not included).
The game is set to be a massive single player RPG with vehicle travel included, as I first seen this I was upset to find out it isn’t full co-op but with many details still unknown they probably have good reason. Luckily though they will be offering single player missions in a cooperative mode that lets you relive these moments. Obviously scaled for the occassion it is a good start and can only hope this sells well enough that we get a Rage 2 with full cooperative campaign. I might be getting ahead of myself seeing as this one is not out yet, I am a gamer, excuse me if I dare to dream.
