Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) is the game engine currently being used by Rockstar Games to develop upcoming titles Grand Theft Auto IV and Midnight Club: Los Angeles.

With it running on the RAGE engine, which powers Rockstar's Table Tennis and also the forthcoming Grand Theft Auto IV, you can in fact expect a very similar visual quality to the in-car segments of GTA4 - scenes which we have already given high praise to in our first-hand coverage earlier this year..."
