In talking to PCGamer, Id Software Creative Director Tim Willits revealed that the PC version of Rage will support modding and level design right out of the box. All you need to do, says Tim, is “Pull down the console, type ‘id studio’, then press enter. Then, bam, there’s all the tools we use.”
That’s not to say it’ll be easy to build something from scratch, but like Oblivion, modifying what’s there should be easier.
“Building levels from scratch is more difficult,” says Tim, “because we have a layer system in some of the levels. I can foresee somebody modding up Wellspring (a town in-game) and adding different characters, giving them different voice-over.”
If that’s not enough to get you excited, what about wearable cat ears that respond to your moods via brainwaves?
