New DLC for Id's Rage to Debut Next Week

-Greg Livingston

The Scorchers, a new campaign for Rage, will be available in the coming week on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC for $4.99 (or 400 Microsoft Points). A post on Bethesda’s blog boasts “six all-new areas” where players “will fight alongside new allies to defend the Hager Settlement from a maniacal bandit clan known as The Scorchers.”

Included in the campaign is a new season of Mutant Bash TV, new mini-games, and a new weapon: the Nailgun.

Aside from that, the DLC will also bring expansions on the main campaign. A new difficulty will be added called Ultra-Nightmare, and Extended Play will allow players to play the game past its ending in order to finish scavenging for items and clean up achievements.
