Bethesda and id Software have delivered on their promise. This weekend, the two companies teased a Rage expansion (or DLC, if you're one of the cool kids) entitled The Scorchers, which they said would be available later this week. Well, it's now later this week, and the expansion is out.
You can grab the PC version of The Scorchers for $4.99 right here on Steam. The Steam product description reveals a few details Bethesda didn't cover in its initial teaser, as well. See the feature list below:
- New Enemies and Weapons
Fight the Scorcher clan, the Wasteland’s most psychotic bandits, and conquer overwhelming odds with help from a brutal Nailgun featuring three distinct ammunition types.
- Rediscover the Wasteland
Explore six all-new environments, compete in a new season of Mutant Bash TV and play all-new mini-games. There’s more to the world of RAGE than ever before!
- Ultra-Nightmare Mode
Take your rage to another level with the new Ultra-Nightmare Mode, designed especially for hardcore players looking for the ultimate challenge.
- Extended Play Mode & Combat Scenario Selection
Continue exploring the Wasteland long after the final fight with the ‘Extended Play’ option, and relive your favorite missions any time you want with the all-new ‘Combat Scenario Selection’ menu.
In addition to the PC, the expansion should be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Bethesda's blog post says The Scorchers was supposed to hit those platforms on Tuesday afternoon in North America. Console gamers in Europe will get it later today, if they haven't already.
Oh, and you can peruse the gallery below for screenshots. Judging by those, it looks like id hasn't really strayed from the original Rage's dungeon design—not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.
