Rage (stylized as RAGE) is a first-person shooter and racing game developed by id Software, and published by Bethesda Softworks. It uses the company's new id Tech 5 engine. The game was first shown as a tech demo on June 11, 2007 at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, and was officially announced on August 2, 2007 at QuakeCon. On the same day, a trailer for the game was released by Gametrailers.com. The game was released on October 4, 2011 for PC, Xbox and PS3. On February 2, 2012 the Mac version of the game was released.
The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world similar to that of other popular video games such as Fallout and Borderlands. RAGE features some role-playing game elements — an inventory system and the capabilities of weapons that are based around types of ammunition. Players have the option to customize their weapons and select one of three (four with the Anarchy Edition or Campaign Edition) outfits after completing several story quests. There are also side missions. Players are also able to upgrade their cars with money won from races.
RAGE has two multiplayer modes: Road Rage and Wasteland Legends. In Road Rage, up to four players compete in a free-for-all match that takes place in an arena designed to make use of the vehicles. The objective is to collect rally points that appear around the arena while killing the opponents and stealing their points. Wasteland Legends is a series of two-player co-op missions based on stories that the players hear about as they play the single-player campaign.
