id Software Shows Off Latest "Rage" Build On Xbox 360

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.
