According to European ratings board PEGI, Bethesda is ready to publish downloadable content for RAGE, the id Software shooter that released late last year. 

PEGI's listing reveals something called RAGE: The Scorchers was recently approved by Europe's glorious guardians. For those not in the know, the Scorchers were an enemy faction revealed before the release of RAGE, but never made it into the final game. This lends credence to the idea that we're getting an expansion, with new missions based around the clan.

Since RAGE released last October and wasn't exactly memorable, the idea of an expansion is surprising, but I'd certainly give it a go. I liked RAGE, for all its problems. Good little shooter, and rather pretty to boot.
