Rage gameplay screenshot. New details emerge
New details have been gleamed on Rage, id Software’s upcoming epic FPS racer. The details were given via the American Game Informer magazine who snagged a cover story on the title.

Not a whole lot has been known about Rage since its announcement way back on August 2nd, 2007 at QuakeCon but these details shed a lot more light on the ambitious title.

Here are the new details:

* An engineering system to craft devices including sentry turrets and RC car bombs, if you have the blueprints and parts.
* Your health regenerates–a gift connected to your history.
* Races and missions are available from hub towns.
* Vehicular combat is a big part of racing, with power-ups and ammo placed around the courses.
* Weapon upgrades, such as a scope and aiming stabilisers for a crossbow.
* Alternate ammo types, including a crossbow bolt which allows you to briefly control victims before they explode.
* Stealth is an option in combat too.
* A gladiatorial game show named Mutant Bash TV offers big prize money.
* A car parts system allows boosts to areas such as acceleration, traction and suspension.
* Other car upgrades include bombs, a magnet to draw power-ups, tire shredders and EMP shields.
* Multiplayer modes are currently not finalised.
* One weapon is a three-tipped boomerang called the ‘wingstick,’ which will return.
* The PC version will offer higher resolutions, more anti-aliasing and faster texture page-in times, but the three versions are essentially the same.

Be sure to keep your eyes locked to the Rage After the Impact web-site for new and future details on the game. You can also see an exclusive trailer if you can figure out what the secret password is. A hint may be in the latest issue of Game Informer with Rage as a cover story. Good luck!

Thanks to Shacknews for paraphrasing the GameInformer story.
