I've played every id game since Commander Keen, so you can probably count me among fans of the studio's work. Heck, I loved Doom 3—even the fact that you had to choose between your flashlight and gun. So, whenever a new trailer comes out for id's upcoming Rage shooter, a little tingle runs up my spine. Here's the latest one courtesy of Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
The behind-the-scenes trailer blends snippets of developer commentary with glimpses of gameplay, including some environments we haven't seen before. More detail is also provided on the story, which id Design Director Matt Hooper calls "deep and meaningful." Anyone familiar with id titles knows that the associated narratives haven't been a strong suit, so I'm curious to see whether things will really be different this time around.
One thing hasn't changed, and that's the stunning visuals that new id games tend to provide. Rage looks absolutely gorgeous, especially in the outdoor areas that illustrate the scale of the game world. You'll have to wait until October 4 to go exploring yourself, although I suspect we'll see a lot more of the game revealed at QuakeCon in August.
