Ahead of launching Rage for PC/PS3/Xbox 360 this October, id Software is releasing a series of behind-the-scenes videos about the first-person shooter/vehicle combat game, starting with this five-minute clip about the company's history and legacy. 

Here, John Carmack, Todd Hollenshead, Kevin Cloud, and other id Software notables talk about the advances to the FPS genre they've contributed over the years through titles like Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake.

There's also a look at the the id Tech 5 engine powering Rage, which Carmack boasts is "arguably the best looking game on consoles today" while running at two times the framerate (60fps) most other titles offer.
