On this years Quakecon 2007 id Software has announced a new postapocalyptic shooter called Rage. With this title id Software is making use of its new game engine called Tech 5. Rage is not only a shooter, but also will offer some racing elements and action adventure elements. The release date of Rage is still unknown. John Carmack stated, he won`t make use of the Direct 10 technology. Rage is planned to be released on Xbox360, Playstation 3, PC and MAC.

Some quotes from the gamespot article:

Speaking to a small collection of game journalists, Hollenshead explained that Rage was a deliberate departure from the corridor shooters that made id famous. Its gameplay will be "60 percent shooting and 40 percent driving" between villages in a postapocalyptic wasteland

According to Rage lead designer Tim Willits, the game's title has a threefold meaning. "You're fighting against a post-apocalyptic goverment, so you're raging against the machine," he said. "Then there's driving combat, so there's road rage." Willits also said that "you can't spell garage without 'rage,'" and then revealed the game will have shops where players can extensively customize their vehicles.

Rage will have open-world elements, allowing players to exit their vehicles and explore caves and other parts of the landscape. The game will feature a single-player campaign that will clock in around 20 hours, but will allow individual missions to be played in co-op mode. No other multiplayer details were announced.

The website has uploaded some videos about the Tech 5 Engine and the game, which can be found here.
