Mad Max Takes A Drive Down Savage Road

By KenpoJuJitsu328-05-2015

Yo jurors! Mad Max is an IP that dates back to the late 70’s. When I was growing up there were several Mad Max movies and they were insanely popular. This year, a new Mad Max movie hit the theatres and it’s doing very very well. No surprise then, in this digital age, that where there’s a successful action movie there’s an action game right around the corner.

Enter Mad Max the video game. Now, before you get started, let me say this is NOT a movie tie in game. It’s actually its own thing and by the looks of it it’s stealing...err...copying...err...finding inspiration in all of the right places. In development by Avalanche Studios (of Just Cause fame) and being published by Warner Bros (Batman: Arkham series) Mad Max is set to be an open world game in a dystopian setting annnnnnnd, wait a minute. I feel like we’ve been here before. Have we been before? Oh my gawd this is happening again.

Yup, we’ve talked about this title a bit. It has clear similarities to the Arkham games and Just Cause games among others but it remains to be seen what uniqueness it brings other than the strong Mad Max license. I want to know more. But, what I want isn’t important. What’s important is…..

What say you jurors!? Have these trailers gotten you excited to build your own Magnum Opus? Or does this news not have enough rounds in the chamber for you to take a shot? Let us know in the comments.

For more news on this and other games, drive across the internet wasteland to resupply at Pixel Judge. This news is adjourned.

Still not impressed with the story elements presented here. I'm wondering if Avalanche wanted to make their own post apocalyptic world, got most of the way through the story, and then WB said 'make it a Mad Max title'.
