Level Editor to Ship with Game
Quote:

Want to mod Rage? Good. Speaking to PC Gamer at a recent press event, Id Creative Director Tim Willits revealed that the PC version of Rage will support modding and level design right out of the box. All you need to do, says Tim, is “Pull down the console, type ‘id studio’, then press enter. Then, bam, there’s all the tools we use.

As for what you’ll be creating, that’s a little trickier; Id’s technology has moved on since you could fit 100′s of Doom levels on a CD. “Building levels from scratch is more difficult,” says Tim, “because we have a layer system in some of the levels. I can foresee somebody modding up Wellspring (a town in-game) and adding different characters, giving them different voice-over.” But if you’ve got the development skills to use it, the level editor will be there. “It’s built into the engine,” says Tim.

Will you be creating levels for Rage? Do let us know. We’ll try and feature the best mods when Rage launches in September.
Steamworks is "highly likely" as it is a Bethesda title, and already rumored to support Steam Cloud, Achievements, Voice, and the full feature set of Steam.

Very good news, although I wonder how long it will take to bake all that information to textures and compress it to texture atlas. (megatexture)
Also not having any source textures and such might be a problem.

Will this have co-op similar to borderlands? I actually enjoyed co-op with my friend...ended up playing 40 hours this week on borderlands....

Don't think it has any coop. It's not like borderlands in the gameplay aspect.

Great news, I used to make Quake 3 maps back in the day and even that required you to dl a program. Having it all built in and exactly what the devs use is great!

Wonder how the editor will rank long side Unreal Ed 3.0, which was pretty awesome.
