Say "cheerio" to John Carmack by playing RAGE for free


I doubt that these two things are linked, but sandy, post-apocalyptic shooter RAGE is free all weekend, and playing it might not be the worst way to bid John Carmack a fond farewell as he leaves id Software to invest all his time with Oculus Rift. Not the worst way, but not the best, either, as RAGE isn't very good. 

RAGE is free on Steam until 1PM PST on Sunday, so you still have plenty of time to take it for a spin if you've never stepped foot inside its dreary future world. It's a servicable shooter with a poorly realised world, shoddy characters and a bland, almost non-existent story. But it's definitely worth the price tag of free.

If it grips you and you want to play more after the weekend, RAGE is also on sale until Monday. At 75 percent off, that's just over £3, which isn't bad at all. Cheerio, John Carmack.

I would download it if it weren't 20 gigabytes!

I bought it about six months ago and had to disable features of my ATI drivers in the registry to get it to run. The graphics are good and the gunplay is smooth and fun. There just wasn't enough story to make it feel like a AAA game. If it had been a $15 indie game it would have been fantastic.

It is too bad Bioware couldn't have written the story and let Carmack do the engine...that would have been amazing.
