With the movie receiving some great reviews and raking in the £’s and $’s in the cinema, Warner Bros Games UK today reached out to let us know about a new trailer for the upcoming Mad Max game coming to Xbox One on 4th September this year. The Savage Road trailer features (you guessed it), Max who is left for dead as his cherished Interceptor is stolen by the merciless Wasteland tyrant, Scrotus and his warboys. Max must rebuild a powerful new war machine to escape the deadly Wasteland and can only do that with the aid of his quirky sidekick and expert mechanic, Chumbucket.
Enjoy the trailer below and keep your eyes on ThisisXbox for updates as we approach release date.
For me time is dragging. I know it won’t be long, but waiting until September 4th for Mad Max is driving me a little crazy. If like me you are a fan of the road warrior movies, then maybe this gameplay overview trailer from Warner Bros. & Avalanche Studios will help.
The trailer provides a glimpse into the desperate struggle Max faces after losing it all – his family, his car, his sanity – and the steps he must take to survive in the harsh and desolate Wasteland. For the first time, we get an extended look at the deep car customization, metal grinding vehicular combat, brutal melee combat and a wide range of other activities we can engage in during our quest to build the ultimate survival vehicle, the Magnum Opus, and find solace in the Plains of Silence. All footage in the trailer is in-engine, comprised of actual game play and in-game cinematics. Sweeeeeet.
Imagine if protecting your car was more important than protecting your own wellbeing. Meet Chumbucket, the dedicated, but peculiar, mechanic who is an integral character in the upcoming Mad Max game, and find out how he met Max in a gritty new motion comic from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment.
Following the prior release of Mad Max Motion Comic Part 1 (also including below for you), comic writer Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us) and illustrator Jason Shawn Alexander (Legends of the Dark Knight) continue their recreation of The Wasteland in today’s reveal of Mad Max Motion Comic Part 2, including the notorious post-apocalyptic bandits as they engage in brutal combat with Max.
Alright I admit it, I love the OWPA (Open World Post-Apocalyptic) genre… and there is a reason for that. My favourite movies of all time are the Mad Max ones. No seriously they are. I own them on VHS, DVD and BluRay. When I was little I would watch them back-to-back at the weekends. I can recite the script now. I was obsessed. It’s why I love titles like Fallout and why the new Ubisoft Tom Clancy title excites me.
So another year and another E3 and thank you Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for the news of Mad Max coming to Next-Gen machines. I didn’t even watch the trailer before my mind was made up I would be purchasing this game.
So here comes the trailer and some details from the press release. Enjoy.
Scheduled for release in 2014, 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.”
