The Scorchers is a "brand-new adventure" for Rage that spans six new areas. Players will fight alongside new friendlies to defend the Hager Settlement from a nefarious group known as The Scorchers. New minigames and a "brutal" Nailgun weapon are also included with the DLC.

On top of the new content, The Scorchers brings an "Ultra-Nightmare" difficulty mode, as well as an "Extended Play" option to Rage. This allows gamers to play past the game's original ending to further collect achievements and items.
