Rage Will Ship With Mod Tools, Level Editor
If you’ve been around here any time at all, you know that we love us some mods at GameFront. We’re really excited now, since we’ve learned that id Software will be shipping mod tools and a level editor with Rage when it launches in September.
In an interview with PC Gamer, id Creative Director Tim Willits confirmed that those tools will be part of Rage at launch. According to Willits, simply typing ‘id studio’ into the game‘s console will give you access to tall the tools the team used to create the game.
Willits does say that building levels has changed a bit since you last worked on an id title. It’s a bit more complex these days. Willits said,
Building levels from scratch is more difficult, 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.
Still, if you’ve got the time (and the skills) all the tools you need will be there when you install the game. In preparation for it, you should probably just go ahead and register a GameFront account so you can easily host all your new mods and levels in one place. Don’t worry, it’s totally free!
