RAGE plot is set in the post-apocalyptic period after the terrible impact of meteorites. The main character wakes up after years of hibernation and embarks on a whole new journey.
Since its launch in June 2011, RAGE has received positive reviews. However, in there, the story has mixed reactions, some support, others think it is a copy of Mad Max. Let’s explore each part of Motgame to understand more about the journey. Program of Nicholas Raine – the main character in this post-apocalyptic shooting game.
Based on real astronomical phenomena
The asteroid 99942 Apophis is what makes the game the beginning. Scientists discovered Apophis in 2004 and predicted to pass through the Earth by 2036. They were unsure of its orbit, but Id Sofware – the game’s maker – was based on conjecture. Some astronomers think there will be collisions in 2019 as the starting idea for the RAGE plot.
The Greek Apophis symbolizes a god of darkness and chaos, a name given to the two astronauts who found it. The impact when the Earth collides so horribly, thousands of square kilometers will be wiped out, the atmosphere will be filled with dust but really won’t be like in RAGE. To make the game, the story-building team has expanded the disaster’s impact to a greater extent: Apocalypse.
Nicholas Raine, one of the few survivors.
When humans faced apocalyptic threats similar to dinosaurs 65 million years ago, The Ark project was created with the hope of protecting humanity from extinction. Governments secretly choose members for this program, and Nicholas Raine, the main character in the game, is one of them. The Ark program will allow these subjects to hibernate in underground bunkers, each carrying a hard disk containing many modern technologies that people possess.
Born as a marina, the health and experience of a man in his 30s, Raine became the best choice for the US military to replace commander Stephen Hill, who is believed to have cancer. Two nights before the disaster happened, Raine was approached by the US military and taken to a secret bunker with the number Ark 437a. After being equipped with Nanotechnology, Raine entered the program with hibernation in Ark Omega 5.
Unfortunately, as the phrase “people count not by heaven”, Ark is expected to protect many people. Still, due to the tremendous destructive power of the collision, leading to damage, errors in the AI system of Ark., The unlucky program became a failure. The only survivor in Ark 437a, Raine, is one of the greatest fortunes of his life.
Apart from the Eden project, centered on the Ark tunnels, some Earth inhabitants survive the collision and the other Ark vaults that we will see when entering the Wasteland.
Start of the post-apocalyptic period
Ark was not as successful as it had been, but the number of survivors was more significant than expected. They began living with the floods, gathering together into dependent communities and living together. According to the RAGE novel, for humans, the post-apocalyptic period began shortly after the disaster of 2029 and lasted for six years, but with Raine, everything was starting.
Raine’s Ark is programmed to open in 2133. But due to a system failure, it didn’t open, but it did not open until two years later due to several technical errors that enabled the computer to function, taking Raine out of hibernation. Open your eyes in a daze by all your dead comrades, outside the desert landscape, crumbling the crumbled ragged mountains into strange things. Amid that embarrassment, Dan Hagar, a fortunate resident who survived the disaster, outside of Eden, saved him and took him to his base. From here, Raine officially went on a journey to explore the old world, but things were completely different from that meteorite.
Dan was caught in trouble while carrying Raine home. He was seen by bandits when having a stranger wearing the Ark – Ark suit project uniform. The bandits operate individually but often sell information to an organization that temporarily holds the world of The Authority. This organization is paying a high price to hunt down the surviving Ark.
When he arrived at the base, Dan asks Raine to get a weapon and go back to destroy the bandits to destroy the gun, but rumors have spread. Other bandits heard the wind’s sound and closed the north’s large gate to block the supply line to Dan’s base. By this time, Raine realized he had to repay Dan and find out where the supplies were located. He takes on a task from Dan to help him get medicine, materials and defeat the bandits. Dan helps him learn the new world, grants a car, weapons, instructions on ways to survive.
Raine then helped Dan break a solid north gate to get to the town of Wellspring. Get supplies for the Dan family base. At the end of the mission, Dan assigned to Raine, the “magic crossbow” of RAGE, calling for it. It was a modern crossbow, suitable for silently destroying the target. The gift Dan gave was also a farewell gift because Raine was gradually becoming the center of attention. Dan’s small base would be hard to protect Raine if the Authority came, so he advised Raine to Wellspring to find luck sew.
The most challenging thing to survive is to find a goal for fighting what we live for. For Raine, who he knew in the old world, was gone, the target was very vague, but here the former marines realized what he should do with this new world, what we will continue to explore later.
