RAGE To Contain Doom, Quake & Wolfenstein Easter Eggs

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.

It releases next month on October 7th - within a month. I've amended the wording to avoid any further confusion, sorry.

Nooo! Dashed hopes and dreams... for an extra week :) Thanks for the update!

I can't wait for RAGE either. Partly because I'm a massive id Software fanboy (they're the only company I have any strong brand loyalty towards, and I've never been afraid to admit it), but mainly because it's shaping up to be awesome.
