On June 22nd, Bethesda and Dark Horse Comics will release a three-issue comic series based on the upcoming game, RAGE. No doubt, this is just another way to get the name of the game buzzing in the geek-o-sphere. RAGE comes out in stores on September 13th in North America and the 16th in Europe.
This comic series, developed with the direct participation of RAGE‘s creative director, Tim Willits, presents a new twist on the post-apocalyptic near future as one woman discovers that the survival of humankind doesn’t necessarily mean the survival of humanity. The Earth has been devastated by a collision with an asteroid, with a tiny fraction of the population surviving in life-sustaining Arks buried deep below its surface. Those who survive emerge to find a wasteland controlled by a global military dictatorship called the Authority. But a rescued scientist learns that the Authority has lied to her and the other survivors about how this new world came to be.
Here’s to hoping one of the speech bubbles will say “FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU.” Or, at the very least, have a panel with an easter egg saying “F7U12.”
Full press release below.
Update: Cover art has also been released.
