Mad Max is an upcoming vehicular combat and third-person action video game set in an open world environment and based on the Mad Max film series. It is being developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It is scheduled to be released on Linux, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 1 September 2015 in North America, 2 September 2015 in Australia, and 4 September in Europe.
The game is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, which features terrains like canyons, caves, and deserts. The game has tie-ins to the film Mad Max: Fury Road and its prequel Mad Max: Fury Road (comic book). Players control Max Rockatansky as he progresses through the wasteland to seek for his lost car, the Interceptor, and to build his ultimate car called the Magnum Opus. The game’s narrative and story will also be more “mature” than other titles developed by Avalanche like Just Cause.
The game puts heavy emphasis on vehicular combat, in which around 60% of the game requires the player to drive their car to fight against enemies. Vehicular customization is also featured in the game. Avalanche Studios found developing a vehicular combat video game “a challenge” due to their inexperience in creating a game of similar style.
