id Software: Rage engine nearly done

Posted on Friday, August 01 2008 @ 23:52:31 CEST by

ShackNews heard from John Carmack at QuakeCon that id Software's new Rage engine is nearly complete.
"We have very few things that are very significant left to be done [to the technology]," said Carmack. "We are 'light at the end of the tunnel,' going into the home stretch."

Carmack said that a change to the animation system is coming soon, and that a few tweaks need to be made to the MegaTexture system, but that the heavy lifting is mostly over.
Carmack also stated that Doom 4 will use the Rage engine, the focus in Doom 4 will be mainly on level design and creative aspects. Hopefully this means Doom 4 will be more than a big tech demo like its predecessor was. However, Carmack also implied that Doom 4 will use an updated Rage engine as he wants to provide at least one strong graphical hook for the game.

A release date of Rage is still unknown, id Software says the game will be released when it's "fun and done".
