Quakecon is on! id Software has announced some neat stuff at their own event, with one of them being RAGE on the iPhone and to celebrate they are holding a sale on all of their iPhone games. Don’t get too excited, we have all you need to know below.
Yesterday, during his keynote address at QuakeCon, John Carmack of id Software (known for the Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake series) set off the iPhone gaming world when he demoed the first known version of RAGE for iPhone. The demo was on the iPhone 4, but Carmack said that the game runs very well all the way back on the original iPhone (2G).
RAGE has already been announced for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC but an iPhone version was a bit unexpected. However, Carmack claimed that he has the iPhone version of RAGE up and running at an astonishing 60 frames per second on the iPhone. Don’t believe it? We have the video showing the demo below:
Impressive, eh? We have no current idea when the iPhone version will be released, but here’s hoping it’s not too far off of the console and PC versions.
Along with that blockbuster announcement of RAGE, id Software is celebrating QuakeCon on the App Store (and you don’t have to be in attendance to take advantage). All of their games are on sale. While the selection is slim, they are all likely quality titles. The full list is below:
- DOOM Resurrection, $6.99 -> $1.99
- DOOM Classic, $6.99 -> $1.99
- DOOM II RPG, $3.99 -> 99¢
- Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum, $1.99 -> 99¢
I have included handy iTunes links for each of the games above. I would assume the sale prices will only last as long as the con, so I would grab them now before the chance is over. Wolfenstein RPG is not included as it’s an EA Mobile title.
