Almost out of nowhere, Bethesda will release The Scorchers, a DLC for Rage next thursday. For $4.99/400MSP, players will go back to Wasteland for a new adventure that features six new areas, new allies to fight the bandit clan and defend the Hager Settlment and also the return of Mutant Bash TV, new mini-games, and the brutal Nailgun. Also coming with the DLC is Ultra-Nightmare high difficulty mode and Extended Play option to play past the ending of the game.
A new threat arises
Battle an all-new maniacal bandit clan, wreak havoc with new brutally efficient weapons and explore undiscovered areas in RAGE’s new official add-on pack, RAGE: The Scorchers™. Fight alongside new allies to thwart the Scorcher clan’s deadly plot to destroy the Wasteland.
The add-on pack also includes ‘Ultra-Nightmare’, a new high difficulty mode, as well as an ‘Extended Play’ option that allows you to play past the original ending of the game - giving you the opportunity to finish collecting items and achievements.
Developed by id® Software, the creators of DOOM® and QUAKE®, RAGE features intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech® 5 technology.
New Enemies and Weapons
Fight the Scorcher clan, the Wasteland’s most psychotic bandits, and conquer overwhelming odds with help from a brutal Nailgun featuring three distinct ammunition types.
Rediscover the Wasteland
Explore six all-new environments, compete in a new season of Mutant Bash TV and play all-new mini-games. There’s more to the world of RAGE than ever before!
Take your rage to another level with the new Ultra-Nightmare Mode, designed especially for hardcore players looking for the ultimate challenge.
Extended Play Mode & Combat Scenario Selection
Continue exploring the Wasteland long after the final fight with the ‘Extended Play’ option, and relive your favorite missions any time you want with the all-new ‘Combat Scenario Selection’ menu.
Destiny 2 comes out in September and they haven't even announced it. (10 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: Really looking forward to RDR2 but it's odd that we're like 7 months after the debut trailer and nothing else. Really wonder if they actually launch it this year too. (20 minutes ago)
Activision doesn't "own" Blizzard Entertainment. Activision Blizzard owns Blizzard Entertainment. They didn't buy Blizzard. That was a merger. (53 minutes ago)
There's a lot of internal politics at play at ActivisionBlizzard. I doubt killing the battle.net brand was a unanimous decision. (55 minutes ago)
It's not like the sell it anymore anyway. "Very generous" seems a bit overstated. And what we know of their "free reign" is probably less than informed than you think. (55 minutes ago)
Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (4 Hours ago)
StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (4 Hours ago)
