QuakeCon: id Software Announces Rage For iPhone

At QuakeCon today, id Software's John Carmack showed off a 60-fps version of Rage running on the iPhone -- and announced that an iOS version of the first-person shooter will launch later this year, ahead of the multiplatform main launch.
During a live keynote at QuakeCon, id Software's John Carmack announced apocalyptic first-person shooter title Rage is going to the iPhone. The game will be released later this year -- ahead of 2011's PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. Carmack demonstrated the game running on iPhone 4, but said it can also run on 3GS, and that it looks best on the iPad. According to a report from consumer weblog Joystiq, the small-sized Rage was born of experiments on the Wii. The iOS version of Rage will run at 60 frames-per-second. A second Rage iPhone game will also be coming next year, launching simultaneously with the PC and console releases. During the presentation, Carmack also said that id Software is considering the Android market for Rage as well, but has not made a final decision as of yet. Rage walked away from E3 this year with three Game Critics Awards, including best console game, best action game and "special commendation for graphics." It also held the record for highest number of nominations with a total of five.
