Rage is a first-person shooter first released in 2007 by ID Software. This new release uses the company’s latest gaming technology to deliver a wonderful gaming experience.
Rage is a post-apocalyptic tale set against a backdrop that sits somewhere between the Fallout series and the Mad Max movies.
An asteroid strikes the planet and laid waste to everything in site. Our nameless protagonist was part of a government initiative called the Eden Project, in which selected individuals are holed up in bunkers called Arks to help rebuild society in the wake of the cataclysm.
Things don’t quite go to plan, as our leading man awakens to find all of his Ark companions deceased, and the facility’s equipment heavily damaged. With no choice but to venture outside, the protagonist finds a devastated world populated by hostile bandit factions, mutants and other undesirables. Fortunately, he also encounters a settlement leader named Dan Hagar, who takes him under his wing.
Rage has two multiplayer modes: Road Rage and Legends of the Wasteland. In Road Rage, up to four players compete in a free-for-all match that takes place in an arena designed to make use of the vehicles. The objective is to collect rally points that appear around the arena while killing your opponents and stealing their points.
