id Software's next, Rage, will come with a handy feature for enterprising game modders when the game hits the PC later this year. id Studio, the tools id Software used to build the post-apocalyptic shooter, will be just a few keystrokes away on day one.
id creative director Tim Willits told PC Gamer that id Studio will ship day and date with Rage for PC, calling it "all the tools we use" to make the game. That's great news for modders looking to tackle the challenge of level design on id Tech 5, better news for those who intend to play Rage on their computers and reap what the community creates.
Rage is currently slated for a September 13 release on PC, Mac, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
