Avalanche Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Mad Max video game that provides an overview of the The Wasteland, vehicular combat and much more. The latest video for the post-apocalyptic romp is available in the player below.
It has been a longer than expected road for the game, which will come out right at the end of the summer. While it is a movie-licensed title, the project has a legit developer behind it in Avalanche Studios, the developer behind the Just Cause franchise. In addition, Avalanche dropped the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game to focus on the next-gen platform versions. Unfortunately, the release was not quite able to line up and coincide with the long-awaited next installment of the Mad Max movie franchise with Mad Max: Fury Road, which hits theaters next month.
Mad Max will provide players with an open-world sandbox in The Wasteland as well as a great deal of car customization and vehicular combat. The footage, which was all captured in-engine, definitely looks impressive and promising. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Alien: Isolation prove that licensed game titles do not have to be terrible or disappointments similar to Star Trek: The Video Game or Aliens: Colonial Marines. Hopefully, that is the case with Mad Max here.
Mad Max is due out on September 1. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
