Mad Max is an upcoming third-person open-world action adventure game, developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. It is slated for a 2015 release on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.
The game has been heavily inspired from the Mad Max film series.
The story-line of the game is based on a post-apocalyptic world where vehicles play a primary role in people’s life style, especially for their survival. The plot revolves around the central character, ‘Max’, in a quest to retrieve his stolen iconic vehicle, the ‘V8 Interceptor’ from a group of goons. Inorder to accomplish his goal, Max partners with a ‘sunky-mechanic’, Chumbucket to assist him in building ,’Magnus Opus’, a vehicle capable of high level of customisation. In his journey he encounters many friends and foes that further expands the story.
The most interesting aspect of the game is the vehicular combat system.By consulting his partner Chumbucket, Max can customize his vehicle any way he wishes to, e.g. The Magnus Opus can be retrofitted with quality engines and rams to outsmart enemy vehicles. Garages can be used to modify the vehicle’s parts and fittings accordingly which directly affects its attributes. While on vehicle, Max can switch to combat mode. He can use certain weapons like harpoon(can only be used when Chum is driving instead of him) to take down enemies. Doing so, will trigger the game to enter a period of slow-motion.There is also an in-game crafting system available that can be used to craft various weapons and tools.
Along with a wide range of weapons, there are also certain unique weapons featured in the game. e.g. The thunder-stick is a delayed bomb that functions like a dynamite and can also prove to be very dangerous and powerful.
Players can either choose to use stealth or agression to complete a mission. More gameplay features are yet to be revealed by the developer.
