Ride the “Savage Road” in this new Mad Max story trailer
“Life is a Savage Road. Out here, a man with no wheels is a man with no hope.”
After the massive success of Mad Max: Fury Road, WB Games and Avalanche Studios have decided to give us another dose of their upcoming Mad Max game, which will be released on September 1 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
In the new trailer, which has been embedded above, we learn a little bit more about the game’s story and come face-to-face with Lord Scrotus, a Wasteland warlord with his own pack of War Boys. Set before the events of Fury Road, the gang steals Max’s beloved Interceptor and leaves him for dead… setting up a vengeance-fueled car chase, which is something of a specialty for Max.
Lord Scrotus probably should have just walked away.
Did you catch a glimpse of the Thunderdome in this brand new gameplay trailer for Mad Max? The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment occurs right around three minutes and 55 seconds into this extensive look at how players will take control of “Mad” Max Rockatansky.
Max’s car is at the center of who he is and this focus carries over to the trailer. Prospective players will learn all about building his car, the Magnum Opus, and the vehicular combat it’ll open up. Scavenging parts, talking to other Wasteland inhabitants, and forging alliances will also play a big role in the game.
Mad Max will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 1. Maybe you’ll even be able to barter for it.
Two generations enter, one generation leaves…
WB Games and Avalanche Studios have announced that Mad Max will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 1. If you remember, the game was also in development for the PS3 and Xbox 360 but, according to Game Informer, those versions of the game have been “left by the wayside.” Avalanche made the decision to cancel the previous-gen versions of Mad Max so they could focus on creating the best game possible without also trying to make it work on lower-powered hardware. This new focus will allow the team to deliver “stunning vistas and effects that will challenge your expectations of what the Wasteland might look like.”
But anyone who wants to travel through the Wasteland will need transportation and Avalanche is providing just such a vehicle for Mad Max. “The Ripper,” a fully upgradeable car body with “a powerful V8 engine, upgraded exhaust with custom off-road tires, a ramming grill and a tuned suspension,” will be available as a pre-order bonus to all players who pre-order the game.
WB Games has released a new trailer for their Mad Max game that highlights the vehicles Max and the bandit gangs drive through The Wasteland. The customizable car designs shown in the trailer, including the “Magnum Opus,” a replacement for Max’s “Interceptor,” are also meant to promote a Mad Max-themed episode of West Coast Customs, which will air this Sunday, April 27, on Fox Sports 2 at 10:00 PM (Eastern).
A spearate version of the trailer was also released by WB Games UK with a troubling addendum… a new (and delayed) release date. The Avalanche Studios-developed Mad Max was originally scheduled to be released for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One this year, but a tag at the end of the UK trailer revealed the game’s new date: 2015. Perhaps this applies only to the UK, but that seems unlikely. Instead, we’ll have to warrior on and deal with the news that Max has been pushed down the road into 2015.
