Check out Rage's Secret Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake Rooms

It's no secret that id Software has the most prestigious FPS heritage around, having invented the genre in 1992 with Wolfenstein 3D. In Rage, you can pay homage to that great legacy with small (very, very small) playable levels from three of its games, which are extremely well-hidden, but just waiting to be discovered.

First up, there's a hidden secret segment from Wolfenstein 3D, which appears to be one of the easier Easter Eggs to locate, and you get a Wolf Goblet for your troubles. It's essentially a tiny room, but it's still very cool. You'll find it in the Ghost Hideout.

Then there's the Doom level, which is tucked away in the Gearhead vault, where you'll have to do some weird trickery with some computer keyboards to unlock a door near the entrance. Once inside, you can collect a Doom marine bobblehead, which the eagle-eyed among you will have spotted on Dan Hagar's dashboard during the game's opening.

And finally, heading into the Wasted hideout, you'll be able to find a hidden Quake level, where you'll be able to pick up a Shambler plush while you're there. Weird. Videos on how to access the secret Easter Eggs can be found below, with the good stuff tucked away at the end of each. Take a look.

Rage is out now. Why not check out our verdict to find out what we thought of it?

Ah, Quake... I'm gonna get this game soon. I love a game with Easter Eggs. Except Arkham Asylum style ones that nobody ever manages to find until years later.

You can only vote once, so it's either a group of people or a glitch.

OT: My game should turn up today, so I can't wait! Game looks better than the normal FPS's that are out there, and id have really pushed the franchise forwards. Graphics look amazing, and general gameplay looks lush!

Still can't decide if I buy this or not on release. I'm very tempted.

Rage was a very good game, finished the campaign last night, but it's lacking something. Trading my copy in today after work, I suggest renting or picking up at a lower price.

That's pretty cool. Nice little throwback. Man I used to play so much Doom and Wolfenstein on my grandpas old 386 lol.

@23 I wouldn't get it on PC. There isn't even a way to adjust the graphics. It auto adjusts everything -_-. If you really want it on PC wait until it's on a Steam sale. Personally that's what I'm doing (if I don't break down and buy it on console).

I found the Wolfenstein room on accident and I had no clue about the others.
I love these easter eggs, they show how far games have come on the past 15-20 years.

I haven't found the Doom room yet, but I really enjoy these kind of things. I found the Wolfenstein before checking the forums, but I would have never looked for the others without the vids. From the Fallout bobble head to the Doom tee shirt this game has a lot of small Easter eggs that makes you smile when you come accross them. I'm loving this game.

What's the point in writing an article about easter eggs? Why not write one in a months' time when everyone's had a chance to discover them for themselves?

@24 No way to adjust graphics on PC? I find that hard to believe from an id game. In Quake 3 and RtCW not only did they have a lot of things you could do in the menu but you could tweak the hell out of anything with either your own cfg file or through console commands in game. It's kind of what that id-tech engine (whatever number it was) was known for...

Update to my post @24

Just like I thought Rage is in fact a typical id software game. You may not be able to do much graphic tweaking in the menus but you can in fact do a lot in the console and with a cfg file.

One last post on the matter:

This is a video that demonstrates just how much you could change and id-tech 4 (I think) game using a cfg or console commands.

Note: This is one of those get you to turn the volume up really loud then pop a scary picture and sound up at the end videos. So keep your volume down. However, the first 30 secs or so give a good comparative view of a standard cfg (bottom) vs. a heavily modified cfg (top).
