Rage PC patch to improve 'blurry' textures

Rage's "blurry" textures got you down? Fret no more, for id Software's techno-wizard John Carmack says that a new option in the next PC patch "will help alleviate" the problem.
"We have a bicubic-upsample+detail texture option for the next PC patch that will help alleviate the blurry textures in Rage," Carmack revealed on Twitter. It'll look prettier, you see.
Asked whether id would also be releasing higher-resolution textures, Carmack's reply made it look unlikely.
"Our first test of a higher res page file didn't help much, because most source textures didn't actually have any more detail," he responded.
There's no word yet on when this PC patch will arrive, nor what else might be in it.
