RAGE is coming soon, people. The shooter from id Software promises to take things to a whole new level in terms of gameplay and features. It’s also turning everything upside down because, according to boss John Carmack, it’ll be the best looking game this generation’s ever seen.
Those were his exact words while speaking in an interview with NowGamer, adding they’re doing things no one else has accomplished.
Said Carmack: “When we finally got to a point where we had a locked frame rate and people could sit down and play it and feel it, it did become something that people could recognise. Itâ€™s debateable right now on this generation because itâ€™s hard to do something that looks cutting edge while going at 60 frames per second, because I think that an argument can be made that weâ€™re the best-looking game on this generation of consoles, the fact that we do it two times the frame rate of most of the competitors points out how hard that work was to get to that point.”
He later added: “But I really stuck with the fact weâ€™ve got a lot more performance now than we had. I do a lot of these experiences where I do these A and B comparisons and ask â€œHow does this look when we spend twice as much in fragment processing”? etc. and it is my belief that for an intense action game that you get more from going from 30 to 60 than from adding double as much work into the graphics picture thatâ€™s drawn there..”
Well in order for RAGE to be the best looking console game this gen, it has to beat out the likes of Killzone 3, Crysis 2 and the big dog in the building – Uncharted 2. And we haven’t even spoken of Uncharted 3.
