Rage: Watch “The Enemies” trailer

Continuing id's series of behind-the-scenes videos for its upcoming return to FPS form, Rage, here's a trailer entitled “The Enemies.” You're a smart cookie, so you'll have probably ascertained the clip's general thrust. A selection of id's top bods explain why some enemies should be fast, while others should have big guns -  and how the enemies you face should get tougher as you go along. Together with some intriguing new gameplay footage, you’ll also find more details on the level of detail that's gone into Rage’s animations - here's the clip.

Of course, the great thing about being id is that, if anyone accuses you of bowing to convention, you can simply load up any of your golden-age work (give it a while, DOS programs can take their time) and ask who exactly invented those conventions. The clip makes clear that while Rage's enemies won't appear entirely foreign to anyone who's shot at fantastical beasties, like Splicers, Covenant or Nazis, the team has a good grasp on why everything's in the game – raising the hope that, just as before, id looks to provide fresh thrills within a familiar FPS context. Rage launches in October – looking forward to getting some playtime?

    Looks pretty great. Would it be fair to say that the setting is kind of like Fallout's, and the Authority is like the Enclave?

    I had so many chills running down my spine while I was watching this.

    Title reading comprehension fail: My thoughts upon seeing this at first: "The Enemies"? That game looks like a rip-off of RAGE. /Facepalm

    No animal killing? I'm less excited, but I'm still watching this one.

    Rage looks like a sick game it is a must buy for me. Now if they only put in Blake Griffin in the game.
