RAGE "Anarchy Edition" Upgrade Free, Video

By - Source: Bethesda PR | B 26 comments

Gamers who pre-order RAGE will automatically be upgraded to the Anarchy Edition for free.

Monday Bethesda announced that gamers who pre-order id Software's upcoming first-person shooter RAGE will automatically be upgraded to the "Anarchy" Edition for free. This upgrade applies to those who pre-order the game through Gamestop, Amazon, Steam and Direct2Drive in North America.

According to Bethesda, the Anarchy Edition will include four exclusive in-game items: the Double Barrel Shotgun, the Crimson Elite Armor, the Fists of RAGE, and the Rat Rod Buggy. It's assumed that this upgrade will be applied to all three platforms-- Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC-- when the game launches on September 13.

Monday Bethesda also launched a new gameplay trailer called "Dead City," seen below. As the title indicates, players head into the city to retrieve equipment for a defibrillator upgrade. The clip mostly shows a lot of gun action and a few beheadings with the bladed boomerangs called wingsticks. If there were any prior questions that RAGE wouldn't be a hot id classic (despite the post-apocalyptic theme), this new clip should put you in your place.

For those unfamiliar with RAGE, here's the official game description yanked from GameStop's listing: "RAGE is a groundbreaking first-person shooter set in the not-too-distant future after the asteroid Apophis impacts Earth. In an effort to save civilization, "Arks" are constructed and buried deep underground. These cryogenic lifeboats carry humanity's future, preserved with the tools they need to rebuild. But when survivors begin to emerge, they find the unexpected. Many humans who were above ground during the impact unexpectedly survived, while horrific mutants roam the dead cities. And a mysterious tyrannical government, bent on creating a new world order, has begun the search . . . for you."

    Gameplay looks boring and the graphics stale after seeing the BF3 gameplay footage. This stinks of Doom 3 to me.

    Looks ok, not too bad for a console port. Good thing it doesn't have to follow a game like Crysis 1 to compare it too.

    Erm.... this looks like it plays like Doom3.

    I'll probably fall asleep 1/2 way through and than just get irritated in the last 1/3 of the game when I am fighting the same closet monster shit over and over again.

    Game looks like a blast. My only question is . . . why didn't he use the rocket launcher on the big dude right from the get go? :)

    Wow, you're ignorant. The PC and Linux versions of Rage aren't going to be console ports. That isn't how iD software is.

    I saw a lot of things I liked in that brief video. How about a demo? Remember when they released demos "BEFORE" a game was launched? John you know I'm going to buy it break me off a demo or something. And how about being able to play Quake 2 Multi-player though the web browser like Quake 3. I still love Q2 deathmatch most. How about at least a multi-player video. Co-Op? Help a brother wash the taste of Crysis 2 out of his mouth. Damn

    The game comes out in September, who is to say they don't come out with a demo?

    I love how much detail they put into the game, such as decals, little scratches on walls, buildings broken up with rebar and wiring coming out it just looks like what a real city would look like after 60 years of being deserted.

    Looks good to me...

    There have already been more colorful screenshots. There is always UT3 for very colorful maps, but nobody is playing that game.

    Are bullets made out of rubber in that game? Doesn't one shot the enemy but all throwing and magic stuff does? And bullets don't seem to even rub the environment. We're in 2011, when you shoot at things they're suppose to dent, get a hole or get destroyed. Also all the normal enemies look the same...even look the same as all other videos. It will get boring quite quickly.

    Fortunately the world looks really nice though.

    The AI needs a lot of extra work IMO. Other than that, looks like Borderlands in a way (gameplay), but without the coop... Which kinda was a killer feature in Borderlands :p 

    Come on ID, you can make it better.

    Cheers!

    Definitely looks like a console port. I know ID used to develop on PC first, but I think those days are gone. Notice complete lack of self shadowing and other wordly lights at all, obvious thumb stick aiming patterns, even auto-aim. Yawn, my video card is more powerful than both consoles combined, looks like BF3 is the only thing to look forward to this year.
