Bethesda Softwork revealed at QuakeCon 2010 that Rage, a title from id Software, will be available on store shelves and online in Australia on September 16, 2011.

“Gamers all over the world can now officially begin the countdown to the launch of Rage,” said Todd Hollenshead, president of id Software. “At id, the development team continues their work to complete our newest franchise that will once again elevate the shooter genre.”

Rage features first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s Tech 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more. From the pioneers of first-person shooter gameplay, Rage promises an experience like no other.

“Rage will set the new standard for first-person shooters,” said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks. “The awards and buzz coming out of E3, and at QuakeCon, shows that we’ve got a huge hit in the works with this game and we are really looking forward to getting it into everyone’s hands.”
Rage has already garnered a collection of accolades and awards, including ‘Best Overall Game’ and ‘Best Shooter’ from IGN at E3 2010. RAGE was also voted ‘Best Console Game’, ‘Best Action Game’, and given a special commendation for graphics by the Game Critic Awards, an independent group made up of journalists from 31 leading North American media outlets that cover the videogame industry.
Rage is slated for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and Games for Windows.
