Bethesda Softworks and Id Software have unveiled a new gameplay trailer for Rage. In this clip, we get a look at some split-screen co-op gameplay. The Shrouded clan has come to Wellspring to destroy the town's water supply, and it's up to the players to restore peace by slaughtering every last one of them.

Seeing the game's co-op component in action is a good thing, and while there aren't really any mind-blowing revelations involved in the proceedings, there are a few points of interest. The footage shows some light non-shooting related co-operation and the use of a player-deployable turret. One particularly tough hombre toward the end also takes one of the players down, allowing the other player to illustrate the game's revival mechanic.

Rage comes out for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on October 4.

      I hate to say it, but it seems a little uninspired. It looks like Brink and Fallout merged, but forgot to bring enough fun.

        I remember Fallout 3 videos looking boring too. But the game ended up being a top favorite once I actually played it.

        id's stance towards these games is minimal input from the gamer, less clutter in the user interface... with their typical standout level design and gameplay I think it's gonna be awesome.

        I hope it's much less involved than Fallout. The world looks fleshed out but it won't be like Fallout's combat which was not fun at all.

        What? If anything Fallout forgot the fun by having the worst gunplay ever (luckily everything else about the game kicks ass). Rage will have good gunplay because id is awesome at that sort of thing.

      I like it, but I'm a "keep it simple" kind of guy. That's what a game is supposed to do right? to relax and enjoy it blasting some stuff =]

      I can't wait for this.. They've kept it simple and fun, doesn't look like it requires the player to do anything other than have a lot of fun and kill loads of bad guys!

      I don't care much for the split screen (PC guy here), but the graphics are phenomenal. Only a month away from launch!

      Awesome, the friends and I play a lot of split screen co-op. Too many games these days don't have it...

      FUCKING AGE CHECK I clicked the wrong year and it won't let me watch it. Tried using an incognito window and cleared my cookies. Same issue. Thanks for being a pile of shit, Shacknews.

      As much as I'll be getting this for PC, I'm happy to see it offered in Split-screen for the consoles.

      Too many games these days are leaving out client-side co-op, in favor of online-only co-op...

      watching demos with console controllers is a jarring and painful experience

        Yup. Also noticing that the left handed AK ejects shells to the right. And the repetitive "He's over there!" got old fast.

      I didn't even know this had coop. Is the full game actually co-op or just a few levels?

        Just a few side mission that relate to the main story

      Do all the bad guys have the same voice?

      Kind of a shame (for my tastes) that the gunplay there is your standard assault rifle stuff (hitscan with some spread, ironsights, yada yada) but hopefully they'll still have interesting weapons with weird projectiles and good ol' hipfiring.

      Only time I can stomach playing FPS on a console is when it's split screen co-op because the Pros of playing with a buddy far outweigh the suck. Kudos id for that!

      Why does the body and blood disappear? :( Hope there will be options to change this.

      Why do they always let the worst players demo the game?
