RAGE The Scorchers DLC Out Now

Oh, you thought your time with RAGE was over?

Id Software has officially released the long-awaited downloadable content for the apocalyptic wasteland first-person shooter RAGE. The DLC is titled The Scorchers and features a story that revolves around the emergence of a new mechanical bandit clan with a deadly plan to takeover and destroy the wasteland.

Returning to the Hagar Settlement, players will unite with a new character named Sarah whom will aid you in discovering the new threat that awaits behind mysterious tremors that have suddenly emerged from the depths of the wasteland.

[adsense250itp]The Scorchers will feature new areas to explore and new alliances to be made as well as a host of new weapons and items to aid you in your fight against the bandits. The DLC also features the brand new Ultra-Nightmare difficulty level that will push even veteran players to their limits, making every day a fight for basic survival. In addition, the Combat Scenario menu allows players to replay previous missions.

On top of the previously announced content, id Software has confirmed that The Scorchers also features an Extended Play option that allows players to continue playing past the end of the game’s story. Similar to Fallout 3’s Broken Steel add-on, The Scorchers pushes the playability beyond the final scene of the game, which allows perfectionists to continue to roam the wasteland in search of collectibles and achievements or trophies.

The biggest surprise about The Scorchers is its late release. Originally set for release in late 2010, RAGE hit store shelves early last year and seemingly faded into obscurity. The sudden news of a DLC, especially one that offers so much content, has come as a major shock but one that players are completely open to receiving.

Powered by id Software’s revolutionary Tech 5 technology, RAGE features a large open-world environment, a deadly host of enemies and enough action to keep you on the edge of your seat. Not to mention, it has a highly praised visual performance with a frame rate that even the newest AAA titles struggle to achieve.

RAGE: The Scorchers is now available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC for 400 Microsoft Points or $4.99 respectively.

    Personally I enjoyed Rage. Enough that I never traded it in, and more I’m very glad. Can’t wait to play this expansion and get back into id’s take on the wasteland.
