Mad Max Game Announced

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment finally announces Mad Max, officially acknowledging that Avalanche Studios is developing a new open-world, third-person action game that will put players in the leather pants and other comfy desert-wear of Mad Max, avenger of the scarred roadways and enemy to all in shoulder pads. It was reported this game would be announced at E3 2012 but something prevented that, but recent domain registrations offered indications the project was gearing up, and true to that, its release is expected next year for Windows and consoles, both next- and last-generation. The Mad Max website is online offering an announce trailer showing some Max-style mercy, and here's word:

Burbank, Calif. – June 10, 2013 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced Mad Max™, 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. The game will debut for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One® the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows® PC.

Scheduled for release in 2014, Mad Max will 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.

“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,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production & Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “We are very pleased to work with Avalanche Studios to provide a next generation gaming experience with robust fighting paired with dynamic vehicular combat."

“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.”

Mad Max is under development by Avalanche Studios. For more information, visit www.madmaxgame.com, Facebook.com/MadMaxGame and Twitter.com/MadMaxGame.

They are showing the pre-alpha demo behind closed doors at E3.

Some points: American actors or little connection to Australia? About half on foot and half vehicle combat. Take downs (yuck). Car combat sounds similar to Outlander (awesome Sega Genesis and SNES game that was originally a Mad Max game before the license fell through). Lots of violence. Somekinda new physics system for vehicle damage. Overall sounds like a "gritty Just Cause" which I'm fine with if it's fun and doesn't shit all over the movies.

Just don't be another Aliens Colonial Marines.

It had BETTER have out of vehicle combat. Because if it doesn't, I have two words for you.

Auto... Assault...

Don't know what that is? Exactly, that's my point!

Verhoeven's Starship Troopers movie is BRILLIANT. It's a sometimes hilarious satire about militarism, nationalism, with lots of gore, nudes, and humor.
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Go read the book, then watch the movie. As much as people say the movie never lives up to the book? The only thing in common the movie has with the book is the name of the protagonist, and the fact that humans are fighting "bugs". That's it. There isn't enough similarity there in the movie to even associate one with the other.

I hate those movies.

The first one is a classic. The sequels suck.

The movie is very different from the books, but the movie stands on its own as both a valid entry in the action-scifi genre, and at the same time a satire of it. Great FX that still hold up, a great score, and some great over the top hammy acting by Michael Ironsides. Would you like to know more?

Sadly I agree the Starship troopers movies were good. First one being the best and is still one of the best sounding movies out there. The second one felt like it was jumping shark, and the third set up the power suits and made it as if the movies were more of a lead in/alt timeline from the books. Personally I LOVED the computer animated series they did and still want to kill someone for cutting it short with a cliffhanger. If you ever go into a movie thinking it's going to live up a book I really would like to know what kind of drugs your on. Now Enders game MIGHT just prove me wrong...

I thought we would be playing mad max, even then I couldn't care less.
Open world is a huge plus, playing as predefined character isn't, even Mad Max. Why couldn't you play Mad HorrorScope? Honestly it's not my personal choice to run around in a gameworld for 30+ hours looking at some guys ass. As WyldKat mention Saints Row style character creator or hell any mmog toon generator would be better. It's the world that matters not the original name.

Here's hoping they hire a real writer, an actual well written interesting story would make a huge difference. There are so few developers who actually care about story quality. Wonder if that has anything to do with high quantity of average games released.
 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

I've always wanted sort of an Elite-style game, but taking place in a Mad Max like setting with cars and trucks instead of spaceships. Hard to say if that would actually work out in practice, but I like the idea. Surely this won't be it, of course.

For the record, I remember really liking the NES game. Though to be fair, I was like 10 years old, and the first two Mad Max movies were up there with Star Wars as my favorite childhood movies, so I may have just been suckered by the license. That won't cut it anymore, but I still hope it's good (not holding my breath).

A Starship Troopers movie done right would basically be a scifi Full Metal Jacket. That would be kinda awesome.
qft.

You guys and I remember either Starship Troopers or Full Metal Jacket very differently.

I never knew it was a book until I saw the opening credits. Aside from seeing the trailers, I went in blind and it delivered to my expectations but I can understand why someone who read the book prior to watching the movie may have a different point of view.

Hey now, Starship Troopers and Terminator had some good games. Just not anything recent, mind you....

Both also had some good movies. Just not anything recent, mind you....

If you didn't read the book first, I'm sure you would of thought better of the Starship Troopers movie, lol. It's definitely up there in my top 10 guilty pleasure movies to watch. There's just something quite enjoyable watching loads of machine gun fire raining down on CGI bugs

"...third-person action game"

If there's no first-person option at all, then no thanks times a million.
