Rage dropping Sept. 13, 2011

Rage logoQuakeCon 2010: id's lead designer reveals the post-asteroid-apocalypse action/driving game will hit the PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PS3 in just over one year; arrives in EU two days later.

For years, id has responded to questions about the release timing of its games with one simple phrase: "When it's done." However, today at QuakeCon 2010 in Dallas, the studio's lead designer gave the ambitious new game Rage a hard launch date of September 13, 2011, in North America. The postapocalyptic hybrid of first-person shooter and driving game will arrive on the PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in Europe on September 15, 2011. A 60fps iPhone version was also shown off at the event.

Someone's going to have to get a little work done before Rage debuts in September 2011.

Rage is set on a postapocalyptic Earth in the midst of recovering from an asteroid collision, where humans have emerged from underground "arks" much like the vaults in the Fallout games. Players assume the role of a survivor who has emerged from an ark and has been subsequently outfitted with an array of performance-enhancing nanotechnology and some powerful ranged weaponry. It is based on the id Tech 5 engine, the latest development toolset crafted by the company's chief technical officer John Carmack.

The change in id's release-date policy comes just over 13 months after the studio was bought by ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Elder Scrolls and Fallout publisher Bethesda Softworks. Although Rage was originally going to be published by Electronic Arts, following the buyout Bethesda took over the distribution reins for the game.
