RAGE Gameplay Trailer: Gearhead Vault (Updated!)

We just landed at PAX Prime 2011. To help kick off the weekend, we’ve released an all-new RAGE gameplay video. This time around, we’re focusing on one of the game’s most challenging bandit clans, the Gearheads.

The photo eventually became the model for LA bakery, Sweet and Saucy Cake Shop, to create a DOOM-themed cake. The cake was delivered today to X-Play’s X-Play’s Morgan Webb.

From the halls of id…

For both Nick and I, our first trip to id’s new offices is something we’ll never forget. In addition to playing plenty of RAGE, it was great spending time with members of the team (more on that later this week) and seeing all the cool DOOM, Quake, and Wolfenstein stuff throughout the office. As you can see from the pics above, the place is full of video game history!
