If you just can’t wait, maybe the screens below will help ease your suffering . If you didn’t already know, there is a 3-part comic miniseries from Dark Horse Comics which takes place before the events of the game, written by Arvid Nelson. In fact those of you that have been following the series, the final issue has in fact released today. Though the gamers and comic fans you guys are, I’m going to go ahead say you all have already picked up the issue(s).
Below is a quick description of the game followed by a few in-game screens as well as the three comic book covers.
RAGE is a groundbreaking first-person shooter set in the not-too-distant future after the asteroid Apophis impacts Earth. In an effort to save civilization, “Arks” are constructed and buried deep underground. These cryogenic lifeboats carry humanity’s future, preserved with the tools they need to rebuild. But when survivors begin to emerge, they find the unexpected. Many humans who were above ground during the impact unexpectedly survived, while horrific mutants roam the dead cities. And a mysterious tyrannical government, bent on creating a new world order, has begun the search . . . for you.
Get ready to uh.. Rage.. when this game hits your gaming systems on October 4, 2011.
