New downloadable content for id Software‘s 2011 first-person shooter Rageis now available for Xbox 360 and PC gamers. “The Scorchers” costs $5 and will launch for PlayStation 3 in North America this afternoon, before a release in Europe tomorrow, December 19.
The Scorchers is a “brand-new adventure” for Rage that spans six new areas. Players will fight alongside new friendlies to defend the Hager Settlement from a nefarious group known as The Scorchers. New minigames and a “brutal” Nailgun weapon are also included with the DLC.
On top of the new content, The Scorchers brings an “Ultra-Nightmare” difficulty mode, as well as an “Extended Play” option to Rage. This allows gamers to play past the game’s original ending to further collect achievements and items.
