In Mad Max player will explore a new open world, the game is a third-person action game where players become Mad Max himself. As the “lone warrior in a savage post-apocalyptic world where cars are the key to survival” it will take ingenuity and all of the Mel Gibson one-liners that you can remember to survive. The game will debut for PS4 and the Xbox One. It will also be released on the PC, PS4 and PC.
The game is currently scheduled for release in 2014, and the developers promise that Mad Max will deliver “dynamic, open-world gameplay where gamers fight to stay alive in The Wasteland, using brutal on-ground and vehicular combat against vicious gangs of bandits”. Players are challenged with treacherous missions as they scavenge the dangerous landscape for supplies to build the ultimate combat vehicle.
“Mad Max places gamers directly into the driver’s seat of their ultimate customized vehicle to battle it out in the action-packed, open world of The Wasteland,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production & Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “We are very pleased to work with Avalanche Studios to provide a next generation gaming experience with robust fighting paired with dynamic vehicular combat.”
“Over a decade of creating open world experiences has led us to this point,” said Christofer Sundberg, Avalanche Studios Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer. “The Wasteland lends itself incredibly well to the high level of player freedom with which Avalanche Studios has become synonymous. This unforgiving environment inspired us to create a gritty and diverse experience where driving, fighting and scavenging are essential for survival.”
