Rage - Coming Soon


Now I was watching "Breaking Bad" the other day and I saw someone playing this game.  It looks awesome.  I thought, "how come I've never seen this before?, I want it".  I started looking for it and found Rage is being released October 4, 2011.



Rage is a first-person shooter from Bethesda set in the not-too-distant future where an asteroid impacts Earth, leaving a ravaged world behind.

You emerge into this vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and The Authority--an oppressive government regime that has a special interest in you, in particular. Rage features first-person shooter action, third-person vehicular combat, an expansive world to explore, and graphics powered by id Tech 5 technology. In addition to the story-driven single-player experience, there are exclusive co-op modes you can play with friends and an online rally race car combat mode available.

Storyline:

In Rage's story, the asteroid strikes on August 23, 2029, and the few pockets of survivors are forced to begin a new civilization.

The world is populated by human survivors of the impact, who have come together to form settlements around oases and other practical or habitable locations, including racetracks. These fragile homes are diligently defended by the inhabitants against bandits and mutants, which are divided into various gangs and organizations of their own. Bandits and mutants serve as the player's main enemies for much of the game, and later races, although id Software has hinted at some sort of significant change around the halfway point in the storyline, where races become relevant.

The player emerges into this setting after being preserved inside an underground shelter called an Ark. The Arks are the direct result of the Eden Project, a massive international undertaking in which hundreds of Arks (cryogenic pods) were sealed under the surface of the Earth with twelve people inside each. Each passenger possessed a special ability or trait that, combined with those of the other members, would help them rebuild society. The Eden Project, however, was far less successful than hoped. The player's Ark in particular is in sorry shape upon the start of the game - all of the other residents of the player's Ark are dead (presumably because of the impact), and the equipment of the Ark is destroyed as well, and so the player wakes up alone and uninformed. With no memory of his identity or objective, the player is forced to head for the surface to find sustenance and allies.


Rage was officially announced on August 2, 2007.  Since then it appears it has become one of the most awaited games ever(shows what I know, never heard of it till last week).  It has received several awards already including "Best Game" and "Best First Person Shooter" at E3. Additionally, the game was awarded Best First-Person Shooter, Best New IP, Best Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 game as well as the Game of the Show of E3 2010 by Game Trailers.
