We’re excited to announce our RAGE Graffiti Contest and Sweepstakes on the official Facebook page for RAGE. Inspired by the graffiti found in the game, one lucky winner’s graffiti design will make it into the final versions of RAGE. In addition to bragging rights, this winner will also win a free trip to QuakeCon 2011, taking place August 4 – 7 in Dallas, Texas, and a brand new iPad.
The artistically challenged can also enter the sweepstakes where the winner will also win a trip to QuakeCon 2011 and an iPad.
Folks can enter both the contest and sweeps between now and May 31st at 11:59 PM EST. You must be 18 and up and living within the Continental US to enter. For more details, including the full rules, visit RAGE’s Facebook page.
While our BFG event was more than two weeks ago, there’s plenty of new coverage to share for RAGE, Skyrim, Prey 2, and Hunted.
Don’t miss last Friday’s GTTV episode, which featured a new Skyrim interview with Todd Howard, as well as a first look at RAGE’s Subway Town. Catch both segments at GameTrailers.com.
If podcasts are your thing, Giant Bomb has 40 minutes of discussion on Skyrim, RAGE, and Prey 2. While I highly recommend the entire podcast, the BFG coverage starts just before the 50-minute mark. Elsewhere, Shacknews’ Garnett Lee shares his Skyrim impressions in episode 57 of Weekend Confirmed (scan ahead to the 33:25 mark of the podcast), and also divulges on why he’s so excited for RAGE in episode 58. Head to iTunes to download all three podcasts.
As we continue to see new coverage from last week’s BFG event, we’ll continue update our recaps posted yesterday. Feel free to use this post as your portal to the latest updates, and while you’re at it, check out the screenshots we released online.
Following roundups for Skyrim and Brink, Mr. Breckon has handed off the BFG baton to me. Up first, I’ve got you covered on the latest news for RAGE — with Hunted and Prey 2 just around the bend.
On top of announcing the game’s Anarchy Edition (available now with your pre-order of the game), today we released a breathtaking, five-minute gameplay video showcasing Dead City. Watch it above, and then check out the these sites for new previews, screenshots, and interviews:
Today we’re excited to announce that if you pre-order RAGE, you’ll automatically get upgraded to the Anarchy Edition, which adds four downloadable in-game items to your post-apocalyptic arsenal. The items include…

Rat Rod Buggy
All four items are exclusive to the Anarchy Edition — available in the US and Canada with your pre-order from GameStop, Amazon.com, Steam, or Direct2Drive. For folks pre-ordering in Europe, we’ll have more details soon.
In case you’ve been under a meteor or sleeping in an ark, RAGE releases on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on September 13th (September 16th for Europe).
Let’s get one thing straight: Clavicus Vile (pictured above, kickin’ it) is the most outrageous and excellent Elder Scrolls god, and there’s really no arguing to be done. That said, if you somehow feel differently, IGN has their own opinion in a new “Top 10 Gods of The Elder Scrolls” article. Vile believers: don’t believe their lies.
A few more tidbits from around the web:
Edge takes a look at the process of balancing Brink with its appropriately titled interview “Balancing on the Brink,” featuring Splash Damage lead designer Neal Alphonsoand creative director Richard Ham.
