Please avalanche, don't make this a gigantic open world like just cause 2. Destroying the same stuff over and over for 20 + hours is not fun, especially when it all look the same. I'm glad to see mad max since I grew up with it, but Mel Gisbon would have been a big plus.  By the way, this is not gameplay, it's real time but we have no clue how the game is actually presented when we are controlling it.

Still disappointed that so much focus has been put on the car combat aspect.

YEah I saw it . It was the most amazing gameplay trailer I have ever seen cause it showed NO gameplay what so ever. A cut together video for hyping

Cool story, bro.  I can't wait to see some gameplay.

No multiplayer? That's too bad. We get multiplayer in games that should well be without it (AC, Uncharted, TR, and the likes). In a open world game, where it suits the best (check GTA IV and RDR for references)... nothing.

Meh, it's just a trailer. Or shall I say a teaser without any gameplay worth a damn to tell you anything. I will get a better grip on it when I see uninterrupted extensive gameplay.

Where's the "gameplay" ? This is just a generic hype trailer and it fails to raise any interest in me.

I'm still hoping they'll do something valuable and enjoyable with the license but I have that feeling that this is going to be yet another boring and linear 3rd person cover shooter / QTE finishing move / boring racing / no replay value casual game in which even ammo conservation is not important and that they're just riding on the franchise name to make some quick cash.

Please prove me wrong, but the trailer screams "casual game".
Waiting for some real gameplay videos and feature lists / game descriptions continues.

I feel like avalanche will be good developer for this. Their games have a very chaotic feel to them which is perfect for mad max

So even after all the games you have probably played, if this is from in-game footage, you still can't  'feel' / see the gameplay ?  This game is going to be rubbish.

No Mel Gibson, no buy.  Grown people have the money and kids want to play this, I bet many haven't seen how this was done. Watch the movies.

Decent looks, but, oh no... bad gameplay and no Mel...

So, basically it's Just Cause with set as a movie tie in, lame. Love the series, but Avalanche Studios don't have a prayer of doing the series justice.

Definitely sounding rad. Awesome IP, and a dev that knows how to make an awesome sandbox game.

Now all they need to do is get Brian May and we're gold! Not Brian May of Queen fame but the original Australian composer.

@slainta Multiplayer for open world sucks really bad. If you do that, it's an MMO.

@slainta That will be really stupid to add multiplayer on this game.

It's better without multiplayer bro. :P

(Self-reply) : Just noticed Avalanche is the developer so scratch linear, boring and no replay value. (still enjoying Just Cause 2 sometimes)

But I'm still cautious, especially with games using beloved franchises names, this can go wrong real fast as the expectations are high and are most certainly not in line with what the developers are doing.

@DavidStorm i think it was show casing more how the game world looks etc etc rather than actual gameplay itself

@hadlee73 I agree, I don't think there was a full second of gameplay in that video...WTF?

@Tychobrahi its amazing how many people think the Queen guitarist did the original score to the Mad Max series.  It make us wonder what it would have been like if he actually did compose them.

@keymaster7 LOL You realize there are Mad Max movies from like the 80's right? Borderlands.... hahahaha

@caloc @edinko it was some cut together stuff. IT was clearly not a gameplay video.  We had stuff like this before for example in aliens colonial marines.

@bloody-hell The game will have similarities with Just Cause. It will be a sandbox game as they mentioned. The cut-scenes of the trailer are from the game engine they are not pre-rendered

@Cryptic_Shadow @Tychobrahi Yeah that's a common misconception. In a 'what if' scenario, I think it would have been challenging but awesome. It'd be...Stone cold crazy...
