Remember when John Carmack tweeted that a new patch for RAGE PC would be made available? Well, it’s been two months and we haven’t seen it yet. Not only that but we haven’t seen the level editor that was supposed to be included in the final version of RAGE. Speculations begun spreading; did iD Software abandon us? Well, apparently not as we have some brand new information about the state of both the level editor and the promised patch, so keep reading.
iD Software tweeted some days ago that the level editor is still coming and has not been cancelled:
“it’s still coming and we should have more information soon”
That’s good but what about the patch that would fix the blurry textures? Our sources tell us that it’s almost finished but iD Software wants AMD/ATI drivers to “get more stable” before releasing it. This basically means that the PC patch with the bicubic-upsample and detail texture option is currently on hold.
Oh, and forget the rumored Texture Pack that would include all of the game’s lossless textures. It is not happening guys, plain and simple!
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
