PAX East is in full effect, and we're on the ground, trying out a ton of upcoming games. One of the most anticipated is, no doubt, first-person shooter Rage. Created by John Carmack, the father of the entire FPS genre, Rage boasts an amazing pedigree. But the point of the PAX presentation was to look at its equally impressive scenery.
"The point of the session was a tour through the wasteland, and you start off at the top of a lonely, windy gorge, part of an area called 'Ghost Territory.' A couple of statues topped with Longhorn skulls dot the immediate landscape, and the howling winds tell you that this probably isn't a friendly place. You're tasked with a quest to 'Retrieve Buggy Parts,' so you can fix up your ride. There is a buggy nearby, one of the Class One (the lowest level) vehicles, and you can drive on to your next location, noticing a towering, decrepit freeway looming overhead."
