id Software and Bethesda may have released RAGE in October last year, but the pair’s post-apocalyptic first-person shooter has today been propped up with all-new content thanks to the release of ‘The Scorchers’ downloadable content.
Available now over Xbox LIVE (for 400 MS Points) and on PC via Steam (for $4.99), The Scorchers for RAGE adds new areas to the game, as well as a brand new enemy clan, with additional weapons and mutant creatures to discover out in the wastes of the world.
The DLC will also add the ‘Ultra Nightmare’ mode to the game, a new level of difficulty, while the ‘Extended Play’ option will allow you to continue to play RAGE past the ending so you can clean up any unfinished side missions.
Key features, of The Scorchers? It has a few…
… Oh, you want to know what they are. Well, why didn’t you say so?
