Rage 'The Scorchers' DLC coming December 18

A poorly kept secret, id Software has finally officially announced "The Scorchers" DLC for Rage. The add-on will be available on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on December 18.

According to the Bethblog, "The Scorchers" adds six new areas where "you will fight alongside new allies to defend the Hager Settlment from a maniacal bandit clan known as The Scorchers." It boasts some new mini-games, a new ultra-Nightmare mode for the hardcore players, and an Extended Play mode so players can keep going beyond the end of the game to finish off the tougher achievements. And, if you must have something new to make a pretty pincushions of your enemies, you'll have to check out the new Nailgun.

The DLC will cost $4.99 (400 MS Points).
