As part of id Software's 20 year anniversary, Artistic Director and studio veteran Tim Willits led a seminar about the history of the company at this year's Eurogamer Expo. We'll have a full writeup for you shortly, but before we do, it's worth noting that Willits was willing to shed some light on a few Easter Eggs that will be hidden in their upcoming FPS RAGE. Namely: a celebration of Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake with small in-engine levels being emulated as secrets.
We were able to see the Wolfenstein 3D easter egg in action on RAGE's first mission: a tense battle against the Ghost Clan. Since Wolfenstein is all about finding secrets by bumping into walls and spamming the action key, doing so in a deserted corner of the level revealed a classic blue brick room with a collectable (and eminently sell-able) goblet. Willits confirmed that there will also be similar Quake and Doom secrets scattered around later levels.
RAGE is set to be a culmination of 20 years of FPS excellence, and from what we've played, it's not going to disappoint when it hits shelves on October 7th.
