Mad Max release date set for 2015

Avalanche Studios has confirmed that the Mad Max release date will occur somewhere in 2015 in a new trailer for the game.

The new teaser trailer, embedded below, not only reveals the albeit slightly delayed 2015 release date, but also sheds some light on the driving aspects of the official Mad Max game.

Originally announced at E3 2013, Mad Max is in development at Avalanche Studios, probably best known for the Just Cause game series.

The movie spin-off was originally expected to land sometime in 2014, but has now been pushed back to 2015.

“Survive The Wasteland and customise the ultimate combat vehicle to overtake even the fiercest enemy,” reads the YouTube video blurb. “Mad Max delivers open world gameplay in a post-apocalyptic setting where cars are the key to survival. Developed by Avalanche Studios, gamers become Mad Max, a lone warrior who must fight to stay alive in The Wasteland, using vicious on-ground and vehicular combat against savage gangs of bandits.”

“Following the theft of his iconic Interceptor, Max must align himself with a gifted, but peculiar mechanic named Chumbucket and others to build the ultimate war vehicle as he works to escape from the dangerous Wasteland.”

The first gameplay trailer for the game was released in July last year, following the announcement trailer shown off by Sony at E3 where you saw Mad Max himself sprinting over a wounded man lying at the side of a desert track.

The gameplay trailer itself was a lot bleaker, focusing on the loss of hope and issues around morality and justice.

Sadly, it looks like we’ll have to wait quite some time before we can play Mad Max, but at least the extra development time gives Avalanche more time with the new consoles.

Published by Warner Bros, the game will arrive in 2015 for Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
