Rage: final gameplay trailer takes you into Jackal Canyon

Sniper battles and balloon fighting may be your last glimpse before launch

TODO alt text

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.
