Almost four years ago, Id announced their post-apocalyptic FPS game. Fast forward to 2011, and the house of Doom has confirmed that the anticipated title is â€œbasically doneâ€, according to Creative Director Tim Willits.
â€œIt’s going to be available this fall so we are in the polish and refinement stage which is a great place to be. Now we have all the content done and played through the game and got a real sense for itâ€, Willits said in an interview with Xbox World Magazine.
"I’ll be honest with you, it’s exciting. It’s different from Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein. It has so much to offer, the vehicle combat, the weapons, the ammo types, the items, the story. It really is the best game."
Id still has to put some final polishes on the console versions of Rage, but Willits is confident that tech genius and Id co-founder John Carmack will have this done long before the game ships.
"(Console is) different to PC in that most of the data is read from the disc, we have the texture page in the texture cache. At times you will see some stuff in the distance loading in. Of course, John is working on getting that as final as possible."
Rage launches later this year in October.
