When a PEGI listing for new RAGE downloadable content surfaced months ago, it felt a bit late, considering the game released in October of last year. Still, the add-on seemed like something we'd be interested in checking out anyway. Now, many more months later, Bethesda has announced that The Scorchers ($4.99) will be dropping next week.
As the name would imply, the add-on's six new areas will revolve around the Scorcher clan. Bethesda is promising another season of Mutant Bash TV, more mini-games, and a nailgun weapon when the DLC becomes available on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 this Tuesday. (European PSN members have to wait a day.)
Interestingly, id Software will include an Ultra-Nightmare difficulty and Extend Play option as well. The latter allows players to stick with their own personal world after RAGE's conclusion to take care of any unfinished business. Really, that ought to be the standard by now.
