RAGE DLC arrives next week on PS3, 360, and PC

Bethesda:

Return to the Wasteland in The Scorchers, an all-new RAGE add-on from id Software – arriving on 360, PC, and PS3 next week for $4.99 (or 400 Microsoft Points).

In this brand-new adventure spanning six all-new areas, you will fight alongside new allies to defend the Hager Settlment from a maniacal bandit clan known as The Scorchers. Along the way, you’ll participate in a new season of Mutant Bash TV, encounter new mini-games, and wield the overpowering and brutal Nailgun. (PC, PS3, Rage, Xbox 360)

I gotta tell ya. If I could find a way to fix the texture streaming issue in the PC version, I would probably buy this, but it's just too damn distracting to play the game for me at this point.

I don't really have that problem. I'm using an nvidia gtx 680.
nutcrackr  +   641d ago
look around for some config files, should be able to fix the issue.
Bimkoblerutso  +   641d ago
I've gone through just about every fix imaginable. The best I've done is move all my games to an ssd, but the textures still pop up very noticeably when I pan left and right.

And even if i did find an honest to god fix, it should not be my responsibility in the first place. This is not a problem that falls to the consumer to fix.

Im totally getting this

this tweak will fix you up totally

add '+vt_maxPPF 16' minus the quotes on steam launch options

with this the streaming problem is almost 99% gone, you'll barely notice it even if you swerve your camera full speed wildly thats how awesome the tweak is.

If your on a dual core processor then set it at 8, for quad core the number should be 16

this game is over a year old and this is its first dlc...who in their right mind would keep a game as bad as this? I am not buying this game again to maintain my complete gamerscore in it. Whoever decided to make this an add-on and not a standalone expanision deserves to be fired.
MysticStrummer  +   641d ago
I still have it because the voices under my bed told me to keep it or they'd kill me. They don't want me to actually play it, so I agreed.

I got the steam version for $13 so i still have it
@pandehz Do you do the +? because i have that without the plus and its still noticeable some times (690)

Also, breaking news: Duck Hunt on NES gets DLC tomorrow!
MysticStrummer  +   641d ago
Sweet! I remember reading about a rumored Quail Hunt expansion pack sometime around last E3.
FarCryLover182  +   641d ago
Duck Hunt's 2nd DLC is rumored to be set in Soviet Russia where you take role as a Duck with a shotgun.
pandehz  +   641d ago
They should totally do a dog hunt verion.

Called 'Duck's revenge'
FarCryLover182  +   641d ago
I just cannot wait for Doom 4. Hopefully id doesn't let us down "again."
ATi_Elite  +   641d ago
Oh they will let you down BIG TIME!!!

also is this DLC free cause if not it would be a crime to charge money for DLC to a game that ran like crap and underachieved!

What BS and stupidity.
opinska  +   640d ago
learn to read dam it...
HeavenlySnipes  +   641d ago
Too late for this. Barely gonna sell with this. They might as well wait on this, add one more DLC and release a GOTY version.

No one is still playing RAGE atm for this to garner more than mildd interest
DarthJay  +   641d ago
I do agree that it is incredibly odd that they waited so long to put this out, but I will most definitely play it. It's five bucks and I actually liked RAGE a lot.
jkuli6  +   641d ago
yup, me too. Also of interest is that last little bit about "Extended Play." I finished the game, but ran into the problem of not being able to continue playing past the final mission. Maybe now we finally CAN!
Oschino1907  +   641d ago
You def will be able to, they have specifically stated that its being added so people can finish achievements and such after the final mission.

I have been waiting and watching like a hawk since the first hint of this months and months back. Can't wait to dive back and give it a go on Ultra Nightmare difficulty (I usually don't even play on hardest for most games). Also need to finish expansion and extra missions for Doom 3 BFG Edition.

And $5 for what appears to be a decently sized DLC is probably the best deal I have seen this gen. Usually always $10-$15, $5 is usually some weak ass in game items or pre order DLC.
jkuli6  +   640d ago
I also hope that when I purchase the DLC, it will let me continue AFTER the game is finished. As of now, when I load up, I still have the final mission to complete.

If Id were truly sorry for Rage's release standards, They'd be giving the dlc free for us 'alla' Mass Effect 3 style to sympathize with fans, not charging us.
