Our own Miss Bennett got a chance to ask id Software about Rage at E3. The more I hear id talk about how they came up with Rage, the more it sounds like it is a game created around an engine and that they just decided to throw some fun stuff in here and there.
The game might be a showcase for id Tech 5, with 'megatextures' being thrown around unironically, but that last trailer did make it look like it has a ton of potential in the "FPS with crazy weapons and items" category. I can't wait to see if id was able to turn Rage into a well-rounded game that transcends being an interactive tech demo with guns.
