Mad Max is a Post-Apocalyptic Game From Avalanche
Avalanche appears to have been very busy since releasing Just Cause 2 some years ago. The studio has been quietly developing Mad Max over the past few years, which was finally unveiled today at Sony’s E3 press conference.
Players take on the role of the titular character as he wanders the post-apocalyptic wasteland in true retro-futuristic 1980s form. As Mad Max, players participate in various missions across the wartorn environment by fighting on-foot as well as in vehicles against vicious gangs of bandits.
“Over a decade of creating open world experiences has led us to this point,” said Christofer Sundberg, Avalanche Studios Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer. “The Wasteland lends itself incredibly well to the high level of player freedom with which Avalanche Studios has become synonymous. This unforgiving environment inspired us to create a gritty and diverse experience where driving, fighting and scavenging are essential for survival.”
The game is set for release on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC platforms in 2014.
