In their official blog, Bethesda has announced that a new add-on for Rage, called The Scorchers, will be available sometime next week. The add-on will include six new areas where you will be able to fight to defend a settlement from a brutal bandit clan.
The blog goes on to tell us;
In this brand-new adventure spanning six all-new areas, you will fight alongside new allies to defend the Hager Settlement from a maniacal bandit clan known as The Scorchers. Along the way, you'll participate in a new season of Mutant Bash TV, encounter new mini-games, and wield the overpowering and brutal Nailgun.
In addition to the new content, this DLC includes 'Ultra-Nightmare', a new high difficulty mode, as well as an 'Extended Play' option that allows you to play past the original ending of the game – giving you the opportunity to finish collecting items and achievements.
The new add-on from Id will be released for the PC, the Xbox 360 and the Play Station 3 for $4.99 or 400 Microsoft points.
