Carmack: ‘Rage Looks Better Than I Imagined’
Rage will finally bring it's unique, id Tech 5-powered take on post-apocalyptic shooting and racing to consoles and PC in September, with even the 360 (revealed to be Carmack's current favourite console) version delivering a 720p, 60Hz experience.
"The great thing in this generation [is that] the fidelity of what we deliver now is beyond what my personal imagination delivers, and I see this quite clearly when I develop the tech," Carmack says in the latest issue of 360 Magazine.
"I have a picture in my mind of how you won’t see repeated texture tiling here, you’ll be able to put dirt in the cracks on this and I’ve got this vague sense of that," added Carmack. "But when you look at the muddy shot scenes in Rage, you’re just like ‘this looks fabulous!’ It looks better than I imagined it would and that’s just great, to be able to say that."
