RAGE ‘The Scorchers’ DLC Hits the PSN on Tuesday, Adds Ultra-Nightmare Difficulty

December 14, 2012Written by Jason Dunning

More than a year after the game launched and many months since the last piece of DLC was released for it, RAGE will be getting a new add-on pack with The Scorchers. It will be out on Tuesday, December 18th and sell for $4.99. 

Included for that $5 will be six brand new areas where you fight with new allies to defend Wasteland against The Scorchers, a clan of maniacal bandits. As you try to do this, a new season of Mutant Bash TV will open up, you can play through some new mini-games, you’ll be given access to the very powerful Nailgun, and thanks to the new ‘Combat Scenario Selection’, you can replay past missions whenever you like.

Perhaps the best additions to The Scorchers will be the all-new Ultra-Nightmare difficulty mode and ‘Extended Play’, a new option which allows you to play after the original ending, collecting items and achievements you may have missed.

What do you think of this new DLC pack? Will you be getting it and replaying RAGE in the Ultra-Nightmare difficulty? Let us know in the comments below.
