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.

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.

He's just explaining why he doesn't like their explanations so who cares.

How much did it sell anyhow? Nevermind looked it up myself, 1.47m all platforms worlwide. Bleuch. I remember alot of advertising for that game too. I bet EA is glad they passed on publishing to bethesda.

My problem with the game is that it feels like they just threw in features willy nilly without thinking if it worked in the game. The racing seemed like a good idea but they didn't go far enough with it. The collecting items is just make shift work. The travel doesn't make sense considering the size of the world. They go to the trouble of making towns but everything feels like a paper cut out, noninteractive and full of one off dialogue. Invisible walls everywhere despite constant loading between areas. I thought the guns and AI were were ok but they don't redeem the rest of the game being so bland.

I got it for $5 so I'm not mad about it but its easy to see why it failed.
