Mad Max Preview – King of the Wasteland I TheKoalition

Richard Bailey of TheKoalition writes:
During Sony’s Pre E3 2013 Conference a few weeks ago, Avalanche Studios showed off the first official debut trailer for their upcoming Mad Max reboot. While the trailer consisted mostly of computer-generated cutscenes with no gameplay footage, fans in attendance grew excited at the opportunity to finally play a brand new Mad Max video game.

The next day, I had a chance to sit down with Warner Bros. to take a deeper look under the hood at what all they have planned for this title. Here are a few of my thoughts on Mad Max and why it may be worth picking up when it launches on consoles in 2014. (Mad Max, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Mad Max demo was very early in development but still looks promising.

No aussie voice or multiplayer bargin bin for me.

I don't mind not having multiplayer as Avalanche's games have a ton of things to do so you never get bored. But no Aussie voice? WTF? It's Mad Max! How can you have Mad Max without his Australian accent?!

Yeh not having Aussie voice actor is a very bad move but I am still interested. Avalanche studios said they are treating this like a new IP that's why they are using American voice actor

Still I say they should have gone with Aussie

I agree. The more that I read about what Avalanche is doing, the more I think that they're making a generic open-world game on which they can slap the Mad Max name for branding purpo$e$.

@showtimefolks:

Ah, but that's the point: it's *not* a new IP. It's an IP that's older than probably most--if not all--of the developers actually working on the game. Avalanche's answer is a non-answer.

I don't agree with you on no MP it's a open world game what if single player is 20-30 hours its well worth the asking price if that's the case

It's gamers like you who only buy games with MP that's why we see publishers asking developers to throw in an after thought MP so it could make gamers like you happy

I rather them focus on single player 100% and make that the best they can

Avalanche is known for its open world games but also known for crappy single player stories so this is a test for them to prove they can get their usual great open world with a proper story to go with it

Yeah I love multiplayer and co op if a game does not have it auto bargin bin for me the only open world games I finished this gen were crackdown and saints row 1 and I had a lot the constant travel feels like dead gameplay to me each to their own.

I don't expect the voice acting to be good, so I don't care what accent the guy has. Avalanche and story telling don't exactly go hand-in-hand. The game play is going to be incredible, however.

What are you talking about? Just Cause 2 has the best voice acting of any game ever. Even better than the Last of Us. /s

They really need to get a proper Aussie voice, but I have hope for this one as the devs are quite good at what they do.
