Having been long-rumored, The Scorcher’s DLC has finally been confirmed for Rage and will be hitting digital stores next week. The Bethesda Blog was kind enough to share a few details following the add-on content’s announcement. Here’s what they had to say:
In this brand-new adventure spanning six all-new areas, you will fight alongside new allies to defend the Hager Settlment 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 questline, two new features are coming bundled with The Scorchers DLC. First, there’s the new and punishing Ultra-Nightmare difficulty that will test the most seasoned players. Second, Extended Play is being added, which allows one to continue playing after the credits in order to snag the remaining collectables and achievements/trophies without having to start a new game.
The Scorchers DLC will be available Tuesday, December 18th on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC at a currently unknown price point.
