Rage trailer rides shotgun with first co-op footage
Rage won't be entirely playable in co-op, but there will be a series of missions running alongside the main story called "Legends of the Wasteland." When we spoke to id senior producer Jason Kim, he told us that "you’re doing the same mechanics you had in your first FPS combat experience, but you’re using a buddy to help you out, and the cooperative experience is telling you side-portions of the single-player campaign that you wouldn’t [otherwise get.]" Also, you get to revive your friends with some sort of electric defibrilator canister that looks scarier than some of the weapons. Rage is out in less than a month, on October 4 in the US, and October 7 in Europe.
