id Software revealed the release date for it’s upcoming highly-anticipated shooter Rage, during it’s annual Quakecon today, and sadly it’s not coming anytime soon. The Xbox 360 title will be landing on store shelves on September 13th, 2011 in the US and September 15th, 2011 in Europe. Tim Willits, Rage’s creative director, commented: “We are going to have the biggest, coolest, most badass launch.”
A brand new IP for id Software, this all-new title utilizes the company’s unique id Tech 5 technology, aiming to incomparable new levels of graphic presentation in artistic expression and graphic fidelity. Rage offers high-intensity battling and racing gameplay, offering the complexity of race track dynamics and tactics (including a monetary system where you can invest winnings from races to improve your vehicles and character) and the action of a FPS when you take to foot in combat scenarios.
