An id Software shooter without multiplayer modes? What crazy world do you think we live in? Of course the developer's upcoming first-person shooter will features multiplayer game modes… but they're not what you might expect.  Instead of opting for standard deathwatch modes, previously id's bread and butter, it's focusing on vehicle combat and two player cooperative play for Rage.

Here's a sexy new trailer for RAGE. It features much of what we've come to expect from the game -- intense violence, hideously ugly mutants, and ... well ... that's plenty enough for me!
