It’s been 15 months since RAGE released. As id Software’s first new property since 1996′s Quake, it had some pretty big shoes to fill, and didn’t quite manage it. But regardless of the game’s critical reception and an unfortunately buggy PC launch, the new engine at the heart of it – id Tech 5 – is still a glorious piece of engineering.
And now you can get in and fiddle with it at last. The RAGE Tool Kit is available now on Steam, via the Tools section where you’ll find other mod suites like Skyrim’s Creation Kit. The 35GB download includes idStudios, game maps, and assets.
If you have any success with the tools over the next few weeks, let us know; I’d love to see what you do with one of the most interesting engines out there today.
