Rage is an upcoming first-person shooter and racing video game in development by id Software. It will use the company's new id Tech 5 engine. The game was announced on August 2, 2007 at QuakeCon. On the same day, a trailer for the game was released by Gametrailers.com.

Information available so far indicates that the game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world similar to that of films such as Mad Max 2. In an interview with GameSpot, designer Tim Willits revealed that the game is set in the near future following the (fictional) impact of 99942 Apophis. Matthew J. Costello, who worked on the plot of Doom 3, is also working on the Rage plot. Influences on the driving and racing gameplay include games such as MotorStorm and Burnout, according to another Willits interview by Shacknews. Players will be able to upgrade their cars with money won from races.

Development

Reports indicate that id is developing Rage with a "T-for-Teen" rating in mind, and that the Xbox 360, Windows, and Mac versions will ship on either two or three dual-layer DVD discs, while the PS3 version will ship on one Blu-ray disc. John Carmack has revealed that an uncompressed software build of Rage is one terabyte in size.

On July 14, 2008, id announced its decision to partner with Electronic Arts for publication of Rage. On March 9, 2009 the company's CEO Todd Hollenshead told Gametrailers TV, "No, it won't be out this year," when asked about a possible release date.

A trailer and several screenshots were released on August 13, 2009 at QuakeCon where it showcased various locations, racing and first person gameplay, and a brief insight into the storyline of the game. During GamesCom in Cologne Germany, Electronic Arts released four new screenshots for Rage.

On November 5, 2009, John Carmack stated id Software is not planning to support dedicated servers for the PC version, and instead will use a matchmaking system not unlike console games.

On December 15, 2009, ZeniMax Media Inc., who had acquired developer id Software in June 2009, announced that it has picked up the publishing rights to Rage, and that EA will not be involved in the sales or marketing of the title. The announcement also notes development of Rage has not been affected by this new deal.

Linux port

Regarding the status of the Linux port after the July 14, 2008 announcement, John Carmack said "It isn't a launch platform for us, but an executable may still show up." Later he said that a Linux port is unlikely in response to an email where he says "It isn't out of the question, but I don't think we will be able to justify the work." and "It probably wouldn't be all that bad to get it running on the nvidia binary drivers, but the chance of it working correctly and acceptably anywhere else would be small." Three weeks later Timothee Besset, the person in charge of porting id's products to Linux, discussed the future of the Linux port in a more positive light, stating on September 13, 2009 that "Fundamentally nothing has changed with our policy regarding Linux games... I'll be damned if we don't find the time to get Linux builds done."
