Mad Max is a new open world, third-person action game where players become Mad Max, a lone warrior in a savage post-apocalyptic world where cars are the key to survival. Mel Gibson eat your heart out, the new Mad Max is here.
Frankly, I am surprised it has taken this long for us to see an open world post-apocalyptic Mad Max game. The idea of Mad Max roaming the sand filled wastelands in his beaten-down muscle car wearing his signature knee brace and doing whatever he can just to get some gas is the perfect formula for a video game. Now if only a development team out there could just follow the movie’s storyline, we would have a fantastic game right? Well it is this basic concept that sets the stage for Avalanche Studios’ (the fine folks responsible for the Just Cause franchise) Mad Max game slated to arrive on next gen consoles in 2014. Mad Max arrived on the scene with a bang at E3 this year and a few of us COG staffers had a chance to check out a gamplay demo at the Warner Brothers booth.
