RAGE and RAGE HD getting beefy updates soon!



7:30 PM on 12.15.2010

John Carmack has spilled the beans on an update to what was previously the most visually impressive iOS game, RAGE. Quite a few new treats are being tossed in, too.  

First of all, Game Center support is coming, bringing with it 58 achievements and 13 online leaderboards. Gyroscope controls are being added, and directional damage indicators have been tossed in so you actually know where the hits are coming from. 

Of course, a few tweaks aren't impressive, so perhaps you'd rather know about the two new game modes that are coming. First is a "mirror mode" which flips the levels around to create a new experience. Second, we have a "museum mode" which takes the enemies and objects out just so you can wander around and be impressed by id Software's environmental work. 

Finally, RAGE will support going to support secondary display output at 480p with the Apple component cable and 720p via the Apple VGA cable. There's currently no word on a date for this stuff, but it's planned to drop before the holidays, so keep an eye out!
