‘RAGE HD’ Gets An Optimization Update, Might Go Free

TouchArcade Rating:

It’s a good day whenever we can write about id Software twice. In addition to letting loose a cool little update to DOOM Classic, the developer’s mobile branch also dropped a great update to its much more recent first-person shooter, RAGE HD [$1.99]. Version 1.21 has been “optimized” for the iPad 2 (we lack specifics on what that entails) and allows for HDMI TV output. Even better, the update packs in a melee mechanic that triggers whenever you push your handheld forward, a new analog stick control option, and addresses some obscure Game Center crash bugs.

If you don’t have RAGE but wouldn’t mind grabbing it and its update for the price $0, publisher Bethesda has just the solution for you: an online petition (of sorts). When the franchise’s Facebook page hits 100,000 “Likes," all variants of the game will go free for an entire week. You can shoot over there right now to sign up and hope that the rest of the Internet responds.

What’s next, I wonder. Will we eventually see any of those other RAGE spin-offs that John Carmack teased before? I hope so. QuakeCon is happening pretty soon, so who knows what goodies will get?
