Rage: final gameplay trailer takes you into Jackal Canyon

Here's id Software's latest and last gameplay trailer for Rage, a preview of the “Recover the Decrypter” mission from the game's Jackal Canyon area. It's a break from the claustrophobic vault-infiltration we've seen plenty of so far, with the canyon's wide expanse and deep walls providing plenty of opportunity for long-range combat. Which is lucky, because an FPS without plenty of opportunities for sniper-rifle showboating ain't no FPS at all. Um, unless it's Doom.

id has been generous with the previews of Rage: this six-minute clip alone offers a look at racing, ranged and close combat, not to mention bizarre but ingenious barrel-dodging and balloon-shooting sections to break up the standard face-exploding fare. Rage releases on Oct 4 in North America and later next week in Europe and Australia.

    Ok well the graphics and scenery are awesome. But sadly, the rest of it especially the gameplay bring nothing new to the table. I feel like ive seen all of this so many times so its just boring. Looks pretty much like Borderlands just without the comedy and its not cell shaded. I will definatly pass on this one. P.S. WHAT THE HELL IS WITH GR SUDDENLY CENSORING COMMENTS!?!?!?! wooooooooooooooooow.... No F--k?

    Whoa, that has horribly bad lip-syncing on that first NPC, and horrible cliched gesture animations when he talked. Wow...

    This does look cool, I dislike FPS, but this is fresh and unique take. The enemies look cool and agile and the environments look big. Better then COD and Battlefields, those are a bore now, come on!

    It looks awesome, although it was hard to tell through your crappy video player, GR. I had to keep skipping back cause the audio and video quality constantly drops to almost unwatchable levels...

    Sweet Jeebus that's pretty. Hopefully the vehicles don't handle like crap (I'm looking at YOU GTA4).

    What are you talking about? Gta4's vehicles handled better than in most racing games. They were realistic

    This excites me.

    Well I have happily pre-ordered this beast, Oct. 4th needs to come now!
