Developer id has given its gory FPS RAGE a release date of September 15, 2011 in Europe.
The title, which won multiple 'Best Of E3' accolades at this year's show, will be out two days earlier in North America.
The announcement came at Quakecon 2010, where id showed the game running in 60fps on Xbox, PS3 and PC.
RAGE has been built using iD's new Tech 5 engine, and has picked up some early plaudits.
Xbox World 360 called the title 'beauty over brains' - but was hugely impressed by the title's looks.
id's John Carmack revealed this week that the game would not be compatible with PlayStation Move or Microsoft's Kinect, as he branded motion technology a "novelty".
