Man, have we been waiting forever on this, or what? id Software
delivered the first in-game screenshots of its next generation
first-person shooter, Rage, in August of 2008
. We understand that game
development takes a serious amount of time, but we're nearly two years
into the process (from the public side, anyway) and we're still waiting.
But waiting is half of the fun, and unlike that fabled Duke Nukem
franchise, we're thinking that Rage may actually see the light of day.
At the E3 2010 conference in California this past week, a higher-up from
id Software sat down with G4TV in order to show off live action
gameplay on an Xbox 360. The worlds have been created from the ground-up
in house at the software company, with each and every rock being
different than the other. Reportedly, the worlds are more detailed than
anything else created for Xbox 360, and judging by the (amazing!) scenes
in the video embedded here, we're inclined to believe the claims.
But of course, we've been waiting years for this title to develop, and
there's nothing to say that it won't be pushed back for years more. Who
knows, maybe they'll get the itch to turn it into a 3D title. Just
kidding, we hope.
