Rage - The Well Gameplay Trailer
Check out actual gameplay footage of Rage in this video.
Looks awesome :) I'm a huge fan of anything post apocalyptic so it's definitely on my list of games to get :D
I'm also a little put off by the simplified health system games use these days. Especially with what looks to be a quickly recovering system like what's used here. Seems like no one has the guts to have a static health system anymore becasue they don't want players to have go scrounging for health packs and power ups when get our butts kicked and want to continue on without loading. I understand the design decision, but I miss the days of the boss battle stock up rooms. It also rewarded caution in exploring new areas and wratcheted up the tension in big battles because you couldn't simply run away and hide to recover. Today's Halo generation gamers just want run and gun it seems.
NPC animations are a little stiff but the enemy rag doll physics look quite nice and making the combat animations not repetitive at all. Weapons look fun too. I like the mix and match weapon/ammo system. Can also definitely see this is an ID game with little touches here and there, but it's clearly taking everything to a new level in graphics and story telling which is good. Unfortunately this was no doubt built for consoles and some of the environment textures look downright butt ugly. Forgiveable though as PC games don't bring in the big bucks and next gen gaming consoles are still a ways off.
At first, when I saw this game, I thought that it was basically Borderlands all over again, but now I see that there's more to it than that. For instance, multiplayer is all about the vehicles, instead of just being another set of deathmatches. Also, with the incredible AI, well polished graphics, 60 FPS, and a lot of work going into both the shooter and racing experience, this game will need to be added to my wishlist.
6:55 wolfenstein 3d sound effect (i think) and 6:59 is the pink demon sound effect from doom 8D that was a nice touch!!
Omg, weapons bumping and moving around while the char moves looks exactly as it did in doom 8D This is ID style at his finest ^_^
This demo was done on PC, not on consoles with a controller. Unless it was a PC controller. That's why "press E" always came up.
I can't wait to play this game, a game made by the people who pioneered the fps genre. Everything about it makes me excited as hell, man. It's nice to have games that are to compare it to (i.e. Borderlands, Bioshock, Fallout, Metro 2033, w/e), but I don't think this is supposed to be set at a standard to those other games; id Software is a standard of its own. @lordabtin Developers do this because it's supposed to feel like you're the character, it's a subtle addition to immersion. @ElementOfIce Pinkies are an enemy in the Doom series. :P
Looks great, a must buy, agree on controller from looks on vid, really hope theres an option to fix the fov which might help with the aiming (not sure would have to try both) but I know there will not be but the game is my most anticipated along with Bioshock 3 mainly because of them being new environments/art design.
As usual, horrendous aim on a controller... I hope you'll be able to cast a shadow in this game, see your legs, and have an actual voice maybe, but I know that in 2011 that's too much to ask for.
For the ppl that are young and dont know ID software is the company that is developing RAGE . ID is the first company that made a 3D FPS game until then there were only super mario and stuff.The graphics engine was used in most of the the FPS games that came after DOOM & Quake like duke nukem UT and the Half life engine.ID made Doom and Quake the best and most legendary FPS games until now...If it werent for ID we would still play super mario!!!
Awesome video! I was blown away when he went to pick up ammo and they added the same sound as Quake when he picked it up. This game is going to be amazing. September cannot get here soon enough.
The game seems brilliant but why the guy can't talk. Why do game developers insist on creating dumb character?????
@toplinkar The qualoa quaons, the Q is the symbol for quake. Pinkies, i believe was a commodity in diablo, im not sure i never played that game.
Can some1 explain the tribute to Doom or quake or to me? I haven't played those games, sorry for the noobism.
Notice how the guy at 3:20 noticeably grabs at his shoulder and hunches over after taking a gunshot there. Frickin amazing, this is really looking great.
Well it looks quite similar in terms of gameplay with Bioshock. Lets hope it pushes that type of gameplay further.
This is what happens when you spend time on developing a game, instead of just trying to push one out.
Great game, and i like how this post apocalyptic game actually has large cities and active characters. Fallout and borderlands were kindve dull to me, especially with the atmosphere, not to say they werent great games but this game is obviously gonna be more intresting and open.
Heh, looks like a cross between an RPG, a zombie shooter, and the standard fps. I'd guess that it will be incredible or horrible. Doesn't look like they are doing things by halves. Apparently the Rage iPhone app has very high reviews, if that has any indication.
