RAGE Free Weekend

Steam News announces a free weekend is underway for RAGE, id Software's game of shooting and driving:

Play RAGE for FREE starting now through Sunday at 1PM Pacific Time. You can also pickup RAGE at 75% off the regular price!*

RAGE is a groundbreaking first-person shooter set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, leaving a ravaged world behind. You emerge into this vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and the Authority – an oppressive government regime that has a special interest in you in particular. Featuring intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech® 5 technology, RAGE promises an experience like no other.

Fearing a planet-wide extinction from a massive asteroid headed towards Earth, world leaders are faced with the inexorable task of ensuring human survival. Left with few alternatives, life-sustaining pods filled with select people are buried deep beneath the earth’s surface. You are one of the chosen members of these modern day arks and abruptly enter the RAGE universe after surfacing alone. Leaving you to your own devices to stay alive in a world filled with those who prefer you dead, RAGE combines powerful storytelling with heart-pounding action.

I have no idea what the hell they were thinking with that ending either.

They wanted to do a sequel of course. Think of the HL2:EP2 ending or The Precursors, which probably nobody hear knows about anyway ;). In my opinion RAGE is the best game id ever did and much underrated. You got solid shooting, fun driving, rudimentary quests and beautiful NPCs! But it all went to hell with the megatextures version they implemented. Not only did it kill off most modding, it also looked ugly on slow systems! Now after I upgraded my rig, I finally can run it maxed and it looks quite stunning then, but before? No wonder people were dissappointed and I'm really surprised that a tech geek like Carmack didn't see this coming. Before RAGE id games were always running great on older systems compared to CryTek or Frostbite that needed brute force...
