Sony blew away the crowd at their conference this year at E3. There were a lot of big games that were shown, a few games we saw coming and some others that we had no idea were even being thought of, one of them being the Mad Max game.
Under development at Avalanche Studios, and scheduled for release in 2014 on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC, Mad Max is a third-person action game that 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.
Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production & Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, said;
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. We are very pleased to work with Avalanche Studios to provide a next generation gaming experience with robust fighting paired with dynamic vehicular combat.
Christofer Sundberg, Avalanche Studios Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, added;
Over a decade of creating open world experiences has led us to this point. 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.
I doubt anyone has been thinking that Mad Max would be turned into the game. As us here at Capsule Computers watched the conference and the trailer started we all assumed it was some sort of new game from the Fallout series or even something new from Fist of The North Star but no…it was Mad Max. And even though the announcement trailer was short and honestly didn’t show much at all, it looked great and I think it will be title that a lot of people will want to get their hands on.
