Avalanche Studios’ Mad Max Will Head To The Wasteland In September


Eager to capitalize on the hype surrounding George Miller’s upcoming, bombastic blockbuster, Warner Bros. Interactive has today revealed the release date and pre-order incentives for Mad Max.

Due to launch across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on September 1 and September 4 in North America and Europe, respectively, Avalanche Studios’ open-world title will take place in the ravaged, post-apocalyptic Wasteland, putting players in control of the titular lone survivor. And while the long-gestating title had been slated for release on PS3 and Xbox 360, Game Informer suggests that the last-gen versions have “fallen by the wayside” as the development team chose to double down on the more resource-intensive versions of the game.

For those who wish to pre-order ahead of time, Warner Bros. has detailed the Ripper content pack, which will include a fully customizable build of the “Magnum Opus” vehicle, which probably wouldn’t look out of place in Fast and Furious 10: The Apocalypse — we jest, of course.

After a prolonged development, Avalanche Studios is finally ready to bring its Just Cause expertise to the Mad Max IP when the open-world title arrives on PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 1.


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 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.
