Max Max is Avalanche Studio’s (Just Cause 2) latest next-gen game. A pre-rendered trailer of the game was shown to the world at Sony’s press conference during E3. However we never got to see what the game actually looked like until now.
Awesome The only thing which I'm worried about is the fact that unlike Just Cause which let you drive planes, boats, jets, variety of vehicles basically...will Mad Max let us do the same. I mean this is a world where oil supplies are low and hard to come by surely things like Planes/Jets wouldn't be in the game.
I just want the same sized world from Just Cause
I do but the problem is with how big Just Cause 2 was...you really needed a jet to get to one side of the map to the other. I mean a car just didn't cut it. Hell that's why the grappling hook was good.
planes, boats, jets in Mad Max? sorry but no, this is a different game, it would break the narrative but maybe it's OK as non-canon DLC
The game is supposed to place emphasis on car combat, so the game has to be huge in order to accommodate that.
All the vehicles in the Mad Max films were cobbled together from salvaged parts, thats what made them cool. There is no reason that any vehicle couldn't be used, especially if there's an abandoned airfield. It's down to the scriptwriters'/directors discretion.
I hope this world is full of story and loot, sorta like fallout. JC worlds were pretty empty in that sense but delivered in gameplay.
They'll probably just put all of Australia.
You do realize that Australia is the sixth largest country in world, right?
Who on earth is disagreeing with my simple fact? Trolls... http://www.ga.gov.au/educat...
Trailer is up: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
They had gyrocopter in Mad Max 2
Not really, Just Cause 2 had a lot of variety in vehicles, but the physics and handling were not that great and made it extremely hard to maintain control at high speeds on ground vehicles. Less vehicles means they can focus more to refine those aspects to a more responsive and satisfying result, and i'm game for that
Why wouldn't there be planes/jets? There was no war, so those things were not destroyed. It may be difficult to find them, that's all.
Gas for 1 reason, the whole premise of the 'Mad Max' trilogy was that gas was completely gone.. 'Mad Max 2 (The Road Warrior)' was all about a biker gang trying to get a tanker full of gas. There maybe be planes in the game, finding 50,000+ gallons of gas to fly it, might be another thing altogether.
The entire premise of the Road Warrior was surviving in a post-apocalyptic wasteland... post WW3
@Ilwrath I see that you don't know the story of Mad Max universe. There was no WW3. @barb_wire Planes and bikes do not use the same fuel. Plus, they could always add a hidden military base. This is a game, not a movie. Gameplay is a little more important.
Mr_Nuts no its mad max and that is just cause, 2 different game series set in 2 different worlds can't wait to see the gameplay trailer, after GTA5 gameplay trailer my expections arehight now lol
@Mr. Nuts Adam Sessler already said you only get the car. They also said it's a big big world, but a lot of the things that make Mad Max "Mad Max" are missing, and don't look like they'll be in the game, maybe DLC.
what ?! pc and ps3 versions too ?! it seem like i was under a rock
No offence but that was a pretty average trailer; didn't get me excited and the graphics looks underwhelming
didn't this game come out already under the title RAGE? LOL looks almost the same to me!
I actually got the Rage vibe from the screenshot too. Not a bad thing as liked way it looked but hopefully better consistent hq textures. Sometimes Rage textures conflicted a bit (not enough to distract while playing usually though). I just hope this turns out fun as looks good and like the setting.
edit silly double post
son, i am excite
Great to see good devs get good IP. This has the potential to be the next Arkham.
You said it :)
Looks interesting But i want too much for ps4 now ...
Hope it's as fun as Just Cause 2 but with a more living world. JC2 felt oddly empty at times, plenty of vehicles, but the world felt oddly lifeless.
oddly lifeless? that's the understatement of the year over there! the world in JC2 IS LIFELESS! the gameplay alone saved that game from being a total disappointment! aside from the fun gameplay, everything else like the story, dialogue, AI...are crap!
Only the gameplay saved the game. There is a lot of places in the world such as mountains and jungles you don't explore at all. Its just right there. I really hope this game provides more activities in every place you cross.
I want Just Cause 3!!
Your avatar sums up my emotions.
Looks promising, I hope they will be mixing the first and second film settings together and don't forget the dog :D
So it's NOT a ps4 exclusive? darn :/ where the fluff have I been.
who said it would be? and why does it matter?
just an assumption from the E3 reveal. Usually exclusives have a higher quality to them. Not saying the game will turn out bad. Sure it will be great coming from the Just Cause developers.
>Usually exclusives have a higher quality to them. Yes.. Because GTA5 looks like total sh!t. /s
I guess you don't know what "usually" means. Calm the aditude. Doesn't get you any where.
PS4 is getting the exclusive "Road Warrior Survival Kit" DLC.
I just hope that the world is more active than Just Cause 2. Yes it was big but there is so many empty places. I have faith in Avalanche :)
I hope this is not gonna be another RAGE.
rage was awesome, it was just overhyped.
overhyped by John Carmack himself...which made the disappointment worst! it's an OK game actually
About time some News on Video games. all its been is just PS4 vs Xbox One.
Fallout meets Just Cause might be a really great mix! I haven't even seen Mad Max I might have to before I get the game but I'm excited :)
Its a great trilogy the highlight being Mad Max 2 , outstanding piece of action cinema.
I'm gonna watch it tonight :)
Looks like I am the only one on this planet who is not excited about this one. Not even a bit.
Not set in Australia. That pisses me off.
They announced thy they will be replacing all VO with Australian actors, and it will be set in the same environment as the movies so technically it will be in Australia since the movies were filmed there.
JC3 please zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzz
Very promising. This looks a bit like a 2014 version of the original 2 Fallouts in some aspects, the "desperation of humanity" factor, etc., which pleases me rather a lot. Well then again I guess Mad Max was a huge influence on the Fallout franchise in the first place.
They released like 5 screenshots the day after they announced the game at E3... and there's another 2 of these, a "3 days away" and "1 day away", could've done a bit more research before you posted it.
Apparently the shots they released were pre-rendered. The new one is from gameplay.
They were in-game, they showed off a bit of the combat, they looked exactly like the countdown images.
My one worry for this game is the game world itself. Just Cause games are fun, and they have huge worlds, but their worlds are so empty and largely unused. I'd rather a world half the size with double or more density of missions and things to do.
Why do I have a feeling that this sounds like Twisted Metal? I hope so..
Its more like Rage in 3rd person( I saw it at E3).
I saw a very early footage of this game at E3, and of course the game developers said no camera(Meh!!!)while they show real time footage. The Mad Max reminds me of Rage in Third Person. I said that to Avalanche developers, and they told me that this game is better than Rage(A very bold statement indeed). They show the game from the PS4 version.They was also kind to ask if anybody was a fan of Mad Max, and they got alot of hands raised. When they show the footage of Mad Max, they show him driving a car with another dude(ugly dude that looks like a monster) in the back shooting from a turret. The game developers spend about 5 minutes example the realism of the car and the weight to it. Then when Mad Max was on foot, the game played like your average 3rd person shooter. The graphics at that early state look a bit current gen( A bit disappointing), but I'm sure it would look even better when it comes out. I really wish I could video tape and post leak footage of this on the internet, but at E3 they make sure that no cameras behind close doors. I digress. I hope this footage we are seeing is more polished than the E3 demo they show.
fake ass fallout
Easy now, Fallout, Especially Fallout 3 took a lot from this movie. Hell, just look at its Advert art, a direct reference. http://i.imgur.com/GiwPILt....
yeah but gameplay not so much
Yeah, I remember seeing a Fallout trailer way before 1979 when Mad Max came out, totally a rip off.
This one is even better. But it is a mod. http://fallout3.nexusmods.c...
the only thing that could have made that story better would be a link to the countdown page, duh.
which model they're using for Max? Mel Gibson I hope.
Hoping to see some interesting gameplay mechanics.
