Heads up! Aspyr Media has released version 1.0.1 of RAGE: Campaign Edition, and there are updates for both the Mac App Store edition as well as the non-Mac App Store edition. This is the first major patch for RAGE: Campaign Edition.

The Mac App Store edition probably includes the same fixes as the non-Mac App Store version, but regardless, you need to update the Mac App Store edition through the Mac App Store. Non-Mac App Store owners can download the patch file below.

Publisher’s Description:

RAGE: Campaign Edition™ features the full, unaltered RAGE single-player campaign, bonus equipment formerly exclusive to the Anarchy Edition, including Double Barrel Shotgun, Rat Rod Buggy, Fists of RAGE, and Crimson Elite Armor. Access the bonus Wasteland Sewers Missions which feature additional mutant blasting gameplay and looting opportunities.

RAGE is a groundbreaking first-person shooter set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, leaving a ravaged world behind. You emerge into this vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and the Authority – an oppressive government regime that has a special interest in you in particular. Featuring intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech® 5 technology, RAGE promises an experience like no other.

RAGE was created by id Software (Quake 4) and the “M” for Mature Rating (17 and older) is well deserved from what I can see. I have not played RAGE, but it’s on my list of games – I’m a big fan of id, and of course Aspyr.
