id Software have released five new screenshots showing off some of the purty purctures that you'll be seeing in their next title, Rage. A recent interview with id's Tim Willits has also revealed that Carmack's initial thoughts of dedicated servers are probably still going to hold, with Rage "probably" not going to have them (also interesting is that this was the second question asked in the interview, showing what sort of priority is given to this issue amongst PC gamers - but anyway). The game is apparently on track for a 2011 release.

Looks ok but no dedicated servers = short multiplayer life span, and thus short lived game.

LOL Another game without dedicated servers.

Looks like more and more games will come out without dedicated servers and 'downloadable/online content' in order to finally stop piracy.

Like all id games, it was scheduled for a "when it's done" release - whoever told you 2008 was probably misinformed

Most modern games are in development a long time, so I don't see what that has to do with anything :P

That looks amazing. Some of those screenshots give a beyond good and evil vibe, something I need to finish.

Well I thought the character models looked great BUT the textures on the ground and clipping issue could be better. In this day and age for graphics it is a bit sub par. I was expecting it to be a lot better or would it be due to the console port to limit the graphics for the PC. Well we will soon see I suppose.

I must say that the first screenshot does look a lot like borderlands, but the rest not so much. Is a similar theme/setting though

It needs to play well though; I remember seeing the hype lead-up to AvP (the latest one) and when people actually gave it a go it sucked :(

Same with ETQW I think?

Hope this one's good.

I was about to say this might be the first id game I enjoy playing but then I realised I loved RTCW and ET.

This game disappeared off the map for a while. I was thinking it was vaporware.
