About Rage

Rage is a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter set in the near future where an asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. In order to avoid the destruction of humanity, underground Arks are created to protect humans from the impending doom.

The post-apocalyptic backdrop for Rage is fairly similar to that of the Fallout series of games were a catastrophic event has forced humankind into survival mode.

In Rage, players take on the role of a survivor who wakes with no memory of the proceeding events only to find that he is the lone survivor of the Ark they had sought shelter in. Upon exiting the survival Ark, players encounter a bleak and hostile world where surviving humans have banded together for protection and to form small settlements as they struggle for survival against bandits and mutants.

The single player campaign is played a large open game world that provides players with objective based missions that can be completed at the player's own pace and while they take on and complete side missions. The game also features a number of role-playing game elements such as an inventory system and loot system. The game is played primarily from the first-person perspective but can be played in the third person point of view when traveling in vehicles and vehicular combat.

In addition to the single player game mode, Rage also includes two multiplayer game modes: Road Rage and Wasteland Legends. Road Rage is free for all competitive multiplayer mode where four players enter an arena with vehicles and attempt to collect as many rally points as possible while trying to avoid being killed.

Wasteland Legends is a two player co-operative multiplayer mode where players can team up to complete missions from the single player campaign.

Rage received favorable reviews when it was released in October 2011 and has seen the release of two DLCs, the Wasteland Sewer Missions DLC and The Scorchers DLC which introduce new missions and environments. The Scorchers DLC also adds an extreme difficulty setting called Ultra Nightmare and also allows game play to continue after the main single player storyline and missions have been completed.

Rage 2 Rumors

As early as E3 2011 rumors of Rage 2 have swirled around with statements from John Carmack, co-founder of id Software stating that Rage 2 would come sometime after Doom (known as Doom 4 at the time of the statement).

Then in 2013, it was reported that all work on Rage 2 would be stopped to speed up the development of Doom. Since the release of Doom in early 2016, there have not been any updates but a sequel is still not out of the question.
