Bethesda has announced a six part behind-the-scenes video series for first-person shooter, mutated enemy infested RAGE
. The first of the series was released today, entitled, "The Legacy of id." Quite the legacy indeed, as id Software holds the golden crown for leaving a historical footprint on the entire genre of first-person shooters what with Wolfenstein and Doom.
Now that we've intrigued you, you can conveniently find the first in the series of behind-the-scenes videos below that will take you into the offices of id Software to hear what the developers have to say about their history in making and impacting first-person shooters. They'll also show you how much better RAGE looks from a visual standpoint point graphically and even environmentally than their predecessors (which, of course, we would expect).
We’ve just released the first video in a six part behind-the-scenes series for RAGE. Part one, “The Legacy of id,” is available for download below. In this video, the team at id Software touch on pioneering the first-person shooter and creating the world of RAGE.
RAGE features intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech™ 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more. RAGE promises an experience like no other.
RAGE, the highly-anticipated game under development at id Software, is slated for release on October 4th, 2011 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more information on RAGE visit www.RAGE.com.
