Mad Max gets a vaguely interactive trailer

Mad max

Mad Max is coming and please stop comparing it to the movie. Yes, apparently everyone wants to rub engine grease in their hair now, but the game is sort of different. I mean, you explore a barren wasteland and try to save the world in some weird way, but it’s totally different. Kind of. You play as a man, that’s what matters, right?

The latest Mad Max trailer is supposed to let you choose your own adventure, letting you take on baddies however you like. I just wish that they had divided up the video so that clicking was a bit more satisfying:

I can attest that you can take all manner of paths to success in the game. I took out a convoy when I had hands on with the game earlier this year primarily by harpooning every piece of the car apart. It was sort of maniacally OCD fun. I also liked staying far away when I softened the perimeter for the base – I sniped just about everyone and everything so that I could just walk on through the front gates with minimal resistance. But, that’s my preferred gameplay style, and I love how the game allows for players to take on each challenge in any way that will titillate them.

Mad Max is launching oh so soon, and was one of my sleeper titles of the year. Much like Shadow of Mordor, it simply wasn’t on my radar until E3, and now I’m a little too excited to kill everything in the open desert world. Are you also all aboard the hype train for this, or will you wait for reviews and a guaranteed successful PC port?

    Pre-ordered. I might be part of the problem, but can’t help pre-ordering. Avalanche has a solid record though.

    Shadow of Mordor = Season pass + DLC
    MKX = Season pass + DLC
    Arkham Knight = Season pass + DLC
    Mad Max = ???
    I see what Warner Brothers is doing. Will wait for the GOTY as well thanks

          Indeed, they just keep putting their greedy kak into the games. Man, DLC for days.

            I am part of the problem. I just could not help myself. Predator and Jason Voorhees DLC for MK X had me surrender my credit card like the French to the Germans.

            That’s how they get you though. They know just how to manipulate the consumer πŸ™

            Not really manipulation. The Jason and Predator DLC does not feel slapped on. I got value for my money, which makes me happy. If they start selling Sub Zero Bikini DLC, then I’ll get vocal.

            On consoles you get to be Batman, on PC you get to be a nameless henchman facing Batman. πŸ˜‰

    I’m a big fan of sitting on top of a hill with a beautiful view, and then sniping the crap out of enemies as stealthily as possible.

    I still need to watch the new movie.
    I’m quite pumped for this though. The car customisation looks pretty decent.

    Ummmm…

    This looks a little repetitive. I’m gonna stay on the platform for this one, really think this is one train I’m gonna skip.
