Just about a year ago, we posted a link to a trailer for id's upcoming first person shooter / driving game hybrid dubbed Rage. Since then few details regarding the game have been released other than it would be built around a new game engine called id Tech 5 and that Rage would be the first game developed completely in-house since Doom 3. But today, straight from QuakeCon 2008, id has released the first in-game screenshots from Rage...

Acutal In-Game Screenshots from id's upcoming game Rage

As you can see, the character models have a gory, yet lifelike look to them and the scenes feature excellent lighting, shadows, and Depth of Field effects. The character models are also highly detailed, with realistic looking fingers and appendages, which can't be said for many current titles.

There's still no word on an official release date (we have inquired for more information and are still awaiting an answer, but we fully expect that answer to be "when it's done"), and we are not sure which graphics card was used to take these screenshots, but so what! id's games are typically worth the wait; we're eagerly awaiting this title and hope it arrives sooner rather than later.

Looks great! can't wait to play. my two favorite types of games are shooters and racing games. Sounds like the best of both worlds!

Almost hard to believe that shot on the right is in-game! Very nice.

Very nice indeed. I'll have to get this and give it it's day in court. It's sometimes still hard to believe how far games have come. I've been a gamer since I dropped my first quarter in a Space Invaders machine*. Any "old" jokes from you young 'uns here and you'll be forced to listen to Britney Spears tunes non stop for a week!


EDIT: I would like to point out that I hope game designers don't use "eye candy" to substite for good content. I could care less if a game looks good if it's no fun to play. I have an internet connection if I want to look at pretty stuff.

I used to carry a hammer in my computer tool kit. Just for fixing the packard Bells though.......

Enjoyed all the Doom releases since Doom.Remember playing at 3 or 4 in the morning even on work nights on a Pentium 90 computer.I'm sure to pick this one up too.
Doom 3 was pretty good, I wish they would lighten it up a bit though.It was a little too dark for my tastes.I don't mind the blood and gore but I'd
like to be able to see without a flashlight!

The game looks good.  Can anyone else see those monsters on the left saying "Choc-oh-late" (Goonies).
