Experience the expansive post-apocalyptic, open-world game from
Avalanche Studios for PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC
BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that Mad Max,
the open-world, third-person action game developed by Avalanche Studios
and set in a post-apocalyptic setting, is now available for
PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
The Mad Max video game introduces an original story set
within the universe of Mad Max and features deep car
customization that impacts its handling, metal-grinding vehicular action
and gives players a vast arsenal of mobile weaponry within The
Wasteland. Players become Max, the lone warrior who must fight to stay
alive by engaging in vicious on-ground fighting, as well as
physics-based vehicular combat, against savage factions who are fighting
for domination and survival in this gritty, dynamic open-world.
“Mad Max is an iconic character, recently re-introduced to the
world by the latest film, and now we’re introducing a new way for fans
and gamers to experience the adventure-filled Wasteland universe in
which he lives,” said Peter Wyse, Vice President, Group General Manager,
Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
“Avalanche Studios has created an expansive, beautiful open world
environment that comes to life with a brand new story for Mad Max.”
“Avalanche Studios are big fans of Mad Max and creating an
open-world game in such a brutal setting was right up our alley,” said
Christofer Sundberg, Avalanche Studios Co-founder and Chief Creative
Officer. “We can’t wait to see how players customize their Max
characters, as well as their cars.”
Following the theft of his iconic Interceptor, Max must align himself
with a gifted, but peculiar, mechanic named Chumbucket to build the
ultimate survival vehicle, something Chumbucket calls the “Magnum Opus.”
Players design, customize and upgrade their essential vehicle by
choosing from different car chassis and a myriad of upgrades including
mounted weapons, armor and engines in the hopes of escaping to the
Plains of Silence. Gamers must endure the open-world, post-apocalyptic
environment that features a huge variety of encounters in a host of
different locations throughout The Wasteland, many of them remnants of
the world before the apocalypse. Players brave the treacherous
landscapes, hostile weather patterns and deadly marauders, while
accumulating Max’s equipment and weapons to survive by combining melee
combat, gunplay and tactical techniques.
Mad Max is rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB. For more
