RAGE Novel Adaptation Now Available
Are you an avid reader and can’t wait to jump into RAGE’s post-apocalyptic world created by id Software? Well good news: the novel based on the highly anticipated shooter is now available!
Written by longtime sci-fi gaming author Matthew Costello who has coincidentally written previously released DOOM books, the literary adaptation of RAGE gives gamers the chance to jump head-first into the devastated land before the game releases this October.
Check below for a summary of the novel from the official press release:
“The asteroid Apophis has annihilated Earth, and only a small percentage of humanity’s best and brightest have been saved. Buried deep below the ground in life-sustaining Arks, these chosen few are tasked with one vital mission-to restore civilization to a devastated planet hundreds of years after the impact.
When Lieutenant Nick Raine emerges from his Ark, he finds a future indistinguishable from nightmare. Humankind has not been entirely destroyed on the surface world, and a primitive new society has emerged in which life is brutish and short.
Mutants and bandits prey upon the weak, and a mysterious military group known as the Authority preys upon everyone. Worst of all, a would-be tyrant seeks to impose his will upon the shattered planet. Armed with nothing more than his combat training and survival instincts, Raine must rise to meet the challenges of the wasteland.“
RAGE is slated for release on October 4th, 2011 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more information please visit the official website.
