DOOM, Quake and Wolfenstein Easter Eggs in RAGE

id Software gives a few winks and nods to their classic franchises in RAGE.

This week, id Software, with the publishing help of Bethesda, launched their latest title, RAGE. The game is an amalgam of open-world exploration, arcade racing and, of course, first-person shooting, seeing as how id Software can easily be considered the granddaddy of the genre, having created Wolfenstein, DOOM and Quake. And it seems like id hasn’t forgotten their roots, as the company has inserted easter eggs paying respect to all three classic shooters in RAGE, complete with acquirable collectibles.

Below you’ll find three embedded videos which show you how to find the Wolfenstein, DOOM and Quake rooms in RAGE. It seems like the DOOM and Quake ones are a little bit tougher to unlock, but the Wolfenstein room can be found during the game’s opening mission.

I gotta say, it’s pretty awesome to see id Software pay some respect to the franchises that put them on the map. I wish more companies did this sort of thing.
