I received a press release just a short while ago informing me that the site for id Software’s highly anticipated next title, Rage, has just been updated.
The updates on the site itself involve some nifty interactive exploration but what really got me interested is that for a limited time only, you can download the song from the game’s trailer, Burning Jacob’s Ladder by Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age, Gutter Twins) at no cost at all.
It’s a pretty great music track too, so I snatched it straight away. More after the jump.
Just in case you missed it the trailer. you can watch it again right here.
The press release e-mail gives all the details:
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve expanded www.RAGE.com, the official site for RAGE. Explore the world of RAGE, the highly-anticipated shooter from id Software – the inventors of the first-person shooter – with the new interactive panoramic on â€˜The Game’ page to get the details on gadgets, guns and vehicles that you’ll find in the game when it is launched in September!
In addition, the original track featured in the recently released RAGE trailer, that can be viewed on the site, can now be downloaded for free for a limited time at www.rage.com/extras-rage-mark-lanegan. The track, entitled Burning Jacob’s Ladder, was written and performed by Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age, Gutter Twins) and will be featured in the game.
RAGE features intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Techâ„¢ 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more. From the pioneers of first-person shooter gameplay, RAGE promises an experience like no other.
RAGE is slated for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in North America on September 13th and across Europe on September 16th. For more information on RAGE visit www.RAGE.com.
I’m really looking forward to Rage later this year… heck, anyone who has ever play a game by id Software probably is… let’s hope that it lives up to all the hype.
Just in case you somehow missed it in the press release, you can get the track by going here and using the free download link on the right.
