Mad Max gameplay trailer shows off full scope of game

The first extended Mad Max gameplay trailer has been released, showing off some of the major features of the game.

Ahead of the Mad Max release date in September, Warner Bros has released a lengthy gameplay trailer for the game.

“The trailer provides a glimpse into the desperate struggle Max faces after losing it all — his family, his car, his sanity — and the steps he must take to survive in the harsh and desolate wasteland,” explains Warner Bros.

For the first time, we get a look at the car customisation for the Magnum Opus, so you can make the combat vehicle that’s perfect for you.

You’ll also have to equip yourself with armour and weapons, upgrading your skills and gear as you go along too.

“We are very proud of Mad Max, so we though the best way to showcase it woud be to put together a video. Since the game is massive, both in terms of geography and variety of content, we didn’t think one continuous sequence would do it justice. So, we have cut together a bunch of in-game footage (with a little in-game rendered cinematic sequences to set the scene) to give you as broad a sense of the game as possible,” explained John Fuller, Senior Producer at developer Avalance Studios.

Ammunition in the wasteland is particularly scarce, so you’ll have to rely on some pretty badass melee weapons to survive.

You can scour the wasteland to collect scrap metal that allows you to upgrade your armour and cars.

However, the resources are controlled by Scrotos and his War Boys, who therefore present your biggest enemies. There are other factions that you’ll come across too, who will all be trying to steal what you have left.

It’s then you get to see some of the vehicular combat in action.

The Mad Max release date is set for September 4 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
