Another Rage trailer has been released, and this one drops a few hints about the gameplay while focusing on the post-apocalyptic wasteland that makes up the game world. The footage reminds me a lot of what we've seen in previous trailers, which I hope means that id is keeping a few surprises close to its chest.
So, what's the firm ready to talk about? Multiplayer, for one. Rage is bringing its vehicular combat into the multiplayer realm, and that's not the only way to play the game with friends. A series of co-op missions will also be included, and it looks like they'll deviate slightly from the missions in the single-player campaign.
That campaign will play out in an "open but directed" way, with snippets of the story fed to the player as he progresses through missions and interacts with the game's central characters. id appears to be trying to make the action easily accessible for folks who want to rip through the game, while spreading the story around a little for those who want to take their time and explore. The more id talks about the game's story, the more I wonder if the studio might have come up with a compelling narrative. Wouldn't that be a pleasant surprise?
