RAGE DLC Next Week

The Bethesda Blog has word that The Scorchers DLC will arrive next week, bringing new content to RAGE, id Software's post-apocalyptic first-person shooter. Here's word on the content, which includes a new gameplay mode and the ability to play past the original game's ending:

Return to the Wasteland in The Scorchers, an all-new RAGE add-on from id Software – arriving on 360, PC, and PS3 next week for $4.99 (or 400 Microsoft Points).

In this brand-new adventure spanning six all-new areas, you will fight alongside new allies to defend the Hager Settlment from a maniacal bandit clan known as The Scorchers. Along the way, you’ll participate in a new season of Mutant Bash TV, encounter new mini-games, and wield the overpowering and brutal Nailgun.

In addition to the new content, this DLC includes ‘Ultra-Nightmare’, a new high difficulty mode, as well as an ‘Extended Play’ option that allows you to play past the original ending of the game – giving you the opportunity to finish collecting items and achievements.

RAGE is an FPS shooter and it was advertised as such.

Critical graphical issues on launch pissed a lot of people off who have since not even bothered to go back to the game. Some so pathetic as the whinge about the file size (take a look around this is actually a big complaint - wtf? games aren't getting smaller).

Others, didn't like the story. Were confused that it wasn't Borderlands (or another RPG). Or simply didn't like the art style.

I'm not sure anyone was happy with the ending. We ALL wanted a boss fight I am sure.

Yeah no, I'm not buying that Rage was somehow unjustly accosted by an ignorant user base as the only reasons that people didn't like it or its poor sales. Not exactly a new issue either, peoples various problems with the game have been discussed to death here and all over the place.

In the end its all moot, Rage ultimately underperformed according to Bethesda and id and we will likely never see a followup. Hopefully they will one day make good on the promise to release the mod tools but in the meantime no one is telling you not to enjoy the game, just explaining why they didn't.
