Apparently our eco system got screwed no thanks to an asteroid called Apothis passing too close to Earth. The kicker? Apothis is actually really and on its way.
In 2036, Apothis is actually due to pass our world by with only a very low chance of striking us and ending our merry existence. Cool. Until that near disaster comes knocking though we've got Rage to prepare for the inevitable wave of mutants afterwards.
Our character is the sole survivor of an ark, which is a facility designed to keep select individuals safe during the unfortunate arrival of Apothis. It's part of 'Project Eden' but naturally something goes a little wrong and we're the only one to actually walk away.
Rage releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC October 4th in the US, 7th in Europe.
