The Mayor Welcomes You To New Rage Screens

Bethesda has given the website for id's upcoming sandbox shooter Rage a striking new facelift, and they celebrate by capturing the essence of the game in three new screenshots.

These three screens tell you all you need to know about Rage. For instance, the screenshot up is an example of one of the eccentric characters you'll meet while wandering the post-apocalyptic wasteland. This guy is apparently the mayor of something. If I had to take a guess, I'd say he's the mayor of impressive facial hair, a lofty position if ever there was one. This is the look I'd sport if my chin and neck weren't one smooth, seamless unit.

Then we've got combat racing, an important element of any post-apocalyptic game not named Fallout. Hopefully Bethesda will one day get around to creating Fallout: Combat Racing. Until then, we have Rage.

Last, but not least, Rage is all about shooting people with things. In this case a crossbow, possibly the most satisfying way to shoot anyone, ever.

Rage is due out for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on September 13. Until then there's a whole new website for you to explore.
