We expected Avalanche Studios to reveal something during this year’s E3, however we did not guess correctly the platform at which the team behind Just Cause 2 would make the debut of its next title. At first we thought that Avalanche Studios’ new title would be an XBOne exclusive title, however that won’t be the case. According to its official FB page, Mad Max is coming on PC, X360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4 in 2014. During Sony’s conference, Avalanche Studios revealed the debut trailer of Mad Max that can be viewed below.
According to its press release, Mad Max will be a new open world, third-person action game where players become Mad Max, a lone warrior in a savage post-apocalyptic world where cars are the key to survival.
Scheduled for release in 2014, Mad Max promises to deliver dynamic, open-world gameplay where gamers fight to stay alive in The Wasteland, using brutal on-ground and vehicular combat against vicious gangs of bandits. Players are challenged with treacherous missions as they scavenge the dangerous landscape for supplies to build the ultimate combat vehicle.
Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production & Development, Warner Bros said:
“Mad Max places gamers directly into the driver’s seat of their ultimate customized vehicle to battle it out in the action-packed, open world of The Wasteland. We are very pleased to work with Avalanche Studios to provide a next generation gaming experience with robust fighting paired with dynamic vehicular combat.”
Christofer Sundberg, Avalanche Studios Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer added:
“Over a decade of creating open world experiences has led us to this point. 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.”
