Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Avalanche Studios have announced that their post-apocalyptic, open-world action game Mad Max is now available for purchase on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One video game systems.
Set within the Mad Max universe, this video game features an original story not yet explored through other media formats. Players become the titular character Max, a 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.
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 – dubbed the ‘Magnum Opus’. Players are able to design, customise and upgrade their vehicle by choosing from a range of car chassis and a myriad of upgrades including mounted weapons, armour and engines – all in the hopes of escaping to the Plains of Silence. But irrespective of the vehicle built, Max must endure the treacherous landscapes, hostile weather patterns and deadly marauders which await him on this new journey.

Avalanche Studios are big fans of Mad Max and creating an open-world game in such a brutal setting was right up our alley. We can’t wait to see how players customize their Max characters, as well as their cars.
