Rage Scorchers DLC Officially Confirmed With Screens

View author's profile

Bethesda has officially confirmed that the Scorchers DLC for id Software's Rage is coming next week, adding six new areas to its dusty desert world, as you fight the titular bandit clan among other things.

Rage's Scorchers DLC sees you fighting alongside new allies as you strive to protect the Hager Settlement from the insane, marauding bandits, while you'll also be able to engage in a new season of Mutant Bash TV, take on some new mini-games and bust out the "overpowering and brutal" Nailgun. Sounds good to us.

You'll be able to get your hands on the Rage Scorchers DLC from December 18th for 400 Microsoft Points. Check out some screens from the add-on below, and all eight images in the gallery.

I thought the idea of DLC was to increase the lifespan on a game (i.e. a month or 2 after the release). I would have thought a lot of people who did buy this game don't have it anymore, so they've really have taken too long here.

I might but it secondhand or rent it to do the DLC, but I'm in no rush.

I think they had to charge that much for the DLC. The game has come and gone really out of the spotlight and if it cost any more it would be pointless as people would wait for a sale anyways. I will be picking this up as I have wanted another reason to play this game again.

I've still got this one, picked it up last Christmas for £10 in a sale. Still not had time to play it yet, so some DLC is welcome. I guess the price reflects the games' shelf-life.

@25 I'd developed RAGE for consoles and ported it to PC which had its fair share of issues and complaints. Ports in general are just not as good as what they're originally designed to be.

Rage was a great game but way too short for a bethesda title. It had potential to be so much more and they should have put more work force on it after Skyrim was complete. In my opinion releasing dlc for it almost a year and a half later is too little too late but I will still be playing this.

#5 are you serious? It's easily the most underrated and slept on game in it's time. If you played this game and found it boring then something is seriously wrong with you. It has some of the best mechanics i have ever seen in a game not even mentioning the jaw-dropping graphics. The vehicle sequences and controls are better than most shooters that try to inject vehicles in their game. The shooting? The enemies and the AI? The way they crawl around the walls dodging your bullets...Boring you say?Are you really serious?

The wingstick alone is enough reason to have the best time you could ever have in a shooter. The shooting combined with your wingstick is just epic. You taking off 3 heads as 5 enemies overwhelmingly swarm you in one single wingstick throw is one of the most satisfying experiences in my entire life as a gamer.. So excuse me while i call bullshit on your claims of the game being boring.

IMHO, this game was about a 7.5/10. It definitely did not live up to the hype it generated. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the game though. It's been about a year since I've played RAGE and my desire to go back and play it again is very slim...

Whoever said it was a 7.5, yeah I agree with that. Not bad, but not great either. For what it costs + this $5 DLC package, its worth picking up if you're into shooters, or just a Carmac fan. Others that probably won't be kicking yourself over it.

I got the Anarchy Edition for $30 at Wal Mart a few months back. Hooked on this game and this DLC is not late in my opinion. If you REALLY like a game than DLC shouldn't have to come to you a month or 2 later. Good things CAN take some time people.

The only thing that this game was lacking was a good story and more action/shooter parts. The driving sections were cool but they took away from the gae in my opinion. I loved it though, and now I'll have an excuse to play through it a 2nd time.

It's quite funny considering this DLC is so late, you can now pick up the game for £4 in places like CEX, meaning this DLC is only 50p cheaper than the actual full game.

Don't get me wrong, I hate day one DLC, but this timeframe is hilarious.

It was an enjoyable game. But I felt it was too similar in style to borderlands, though watered down to be a straight up shooter. I'll have to get back to it again for the dlc I think

Devs can't win. Day one DLC and everyone decries robbery, take some time and develop it after the main game, and it's too little too late.

What a whiny bunch we gamers are. Myself, $5 is a no brainer, thank you id for still developing for your under appreciated title.
