Mad Max Videogame Launch Trailer from Makers of Just Cause. Out Now (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

Mad Max the videogame is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One & PC, and is an open-world third-person action driving game from the developers of the Just Cause series, and is NOT based on the recent “Mad Max: Fury Road” 2015 reboot film, but introduces players to an original story set in the Max universe. As seen in the original 1979, early-80s films: Mad Max [1979], Mad Max 2: Road Warrior [1981] and Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome [1985] starring a young Mel Gibson as Max.

It’s worth noting that the PC release in the UK will be digital-only, there won’t be a physical release of Mad Max on PC in the United Kingdom (not that anyone still buys physical PC games anyway, amiright?).


Mad Max, the open-world, third-person action game developed by Avalanche Studios and set in a post-apocalyptic setting, is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. PC is available via digital only in the UK.

The Mad Max video game introduces an original story set within the universe of Mad Max and features deep car customization that impacts its handling, metal-grinding vehicular action and gives players a vast arsenal of mobile weaponry within “The Wasteland”.

Players become Max, the lone warrior who must fight to stay alive by engaging in vicious on-ground fighting, as well as physics-based vehicular combat, against savage factions who are fighting for domination and survival in this gritty, dynamic open-world.

“Mad Max is an iconic character, recently re-introduced to the world by the latest film, and now we’re introducing a new way for fans and gamers to experience the adventure-filled Wasteland universe in which he lives,” said Peter Wyse, Vice President, Group General Manager, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Avalanche Studios has created an expansive, beautiful open world environment that comes to life with a brand new story for Mad Max .”

“Avalanche Studios are big fans of Mad Max and creating an open-world game in such a brutal setting was right up our alley,” said Christofer Sundberg, Avalanche Studios Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer. “We can’t wait to see how players customize their Max characters, as well as their cars.”

Following the theft of his iconic Interceptor, Max must align himself with a gifted, but peculiar, mechanic named Chumbucket to build the ultimate survival vehicle, something Chumbucket calls the “Magnum Opus.”

Players design, customize and upgrade their essential vehicle by choosing from different car chassis and a myriad of upgrades including mounted weapons, armor and engines in the hopes of escaping to the “Plains of Silence.”

Gamers must endure the open-world, post-apocalyptic environment that features a huge variety of encounters in a host of different locations throughout The Wasteland, many of them remnants of the world before the apocalypse.

Players brave the treacherous landscapes, hostile weather patterns and deadly marauders, while accumulating Max’s equipment and weapons to survive by combining melee combat, gunplay and tactical techniques.

Mad Max is absolutely perfect for the realm of the videogame!

Mad Max looks absolutely awesome and I think Avalanche & publisher Warner Bros. have a massive hit on their hands. Could Mad Max be the WB’s replacement for the outgoing Batman franchise now that Batman: Arkham Knight has finished?

If the game sells well enough, I am positive we’ll see a Mad Max 2.

Hopefully Mad Max is not overlooked during the big holiday season.

Thankfully the game is out early before the holidays really begin in earnest next month in September. From September until the end of the year, is when we’ll see all the major blockbusters like Halo 5, Fallout 4, Just Cause 3, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Hitman 2015, Rainbow Six Siege, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Star Wars: Battlefront 2015, Star Fox Zero, Super Mario Maker, Yo-kai Watch, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Rock Band 4 & Guitar Hero Live, Yosh’s Woolly World, Tales of Zestiria, Fatal Frame 5: Maiden of Black Water, Uncharted Collection, Disgaea 5 and The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes.

Can Mad Max hold up? This month’s big releases are Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain & Halo 5: Guardians (the main two Mad Max will have to compete with), along with Guitar Hero Live, Rock Band 4, Zelda: Triforce Heroes, Disgaea 5, Yoshi’s Woolly World, Tales of Zestiria and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, among others.

I think Mad Max stands a good chance of carving out the open-world action niche that players crave. It sits in a different place among Halo & MGS, so hopefully it will be able to find success among the avalanche.
