See New Rage Screenshots, E3 Demonstration

id Software has been hard at work on its next-generation engine technology and new game Rage. Sadly Rage won't be arriving until 2011, but it's on display at E3 showing off how much the developers have been able to squeeze from console hardware.

PC gamers should always strive for at 60 frames per second from their rigs, but now the very same performance level will be a part of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. Of course, PC gamers will be able to dial up the resolution and other visual effects.

Check out the demonstration that aired on G4 for more, and for a lengthier look, see 1UP.

Also, check out a few more of the new screenshots from Rage.

    I watched some of the demo videos on IGN that came from E3. The game looks a lot like a cross between Doom 3 and Borderlands. The vehicular combat and wasteland setting particularly remind me of borderlands. But the indoor fighting has that Doom feeling to it.

    Only time will tell if this is something spectacular. It definitely has caught my eye though.

    Honestly, I don't really see anything revolutionary. This better get a lot better in time. Also, I wanna see what kind of specs you are going to need to run it. The GFX look good....but that's about it. FPS's have gone stale.
  • Oh perfect.....another great game that will probably be a console port for us PC players. Anyone reminded of COD:MW2.

    I'm looking more forward to Doom 4 supposedly going to be talked about at QuakeCon this year.

    And what happened to the perks of having a PC...i.e. special PC-only stuff (not just eye candy). The new Medal of Honor gets PS3 exclusive crap, and the prices of PC games are now up to $60 when released for nothing extra. None of those franchises would be here if it wasn't for the original PC players who bought the first versions to give them the money to expand to consoles. They seem to forget about it and blame it on piracy schmiracy. PCs have the hardware to be perpetually "Next Gen" because they're so easily upgradeable.
  • This had better not be a console port to PC. I refuse to buy any of that crap.

    It is hard to get excited about a console driven game like this one when games like Fallout and Borderlands that are so similar have been out for a long time now and everyone has had time to play and enjoy.

    talk about hardocre coding. 60 fps on the xbox with those insane grafix? pc version should run even more awesome. also, Quake 4 looks insane and cant wait for that but hving the level editor in rage is awesome as weel :)

    Well... I'm excited, personally. It looks like a solid FPS, it's not that irritating style of Borderlands that I didn't like, and while Fallout is cool, it's not a solid FPS at all.

    I love post apocalyptic. And this is the one I think I've been waiting for. Also, if you check dates, RAGE was announced before Borderlands, so it's not 'just a copy', they've been working on this before Borderlands was known about, and obviously Fallout isn't something that was surprising, nor did it ever look like a frenetic FPS.

    tl;dr I'm excited, let's go.

    I don't see what was so exciting about that demo. It looks like a good first person shooter but you have to be a little more than "good" these days to move units. FPS competition is outrageous at the moment and from what I saw from that video it would not be a 'buy' for me. Hopefully they have more to show and the multi-player is awesome because I didn't see anything revolutionary or exciting that would make me want to buy the game. I could care less about visuals. Visuals do not make a game more exciting.

    Wow, another FPS... how creative!
