Mad Max Meets Mad Mechanic Mate

And his name is Chum Bucket. Wish you had a mechanic mate called Chum Bucket? Peter Brown and Seb Ford do.

Did you enjoy this video?

Great idea this game. Avalanche have a good chance of doing it well but I can't help wishing Rockstar had picked up this project

Looks boring they should have done another Just Cause.

It looks unworked and rough on the edges,but it could get interesting.

They are acting like everything in the game is set in stone. Im sure a lot of things will change and what they saw was not fully representative of final product. Seems like a fun game to me.

Wait... Mad Max, lone warrior in a desolate wasteland... isn't actually "lone" cos this chumbucket thing is always with you? Ergh. And no proper melee combat system sounds bad. I didn't expect this to be any good, the same way Aliens always gets ruined -lets hope they have plenty of time to fix some stuff.

Looks like a good game  to me even if Mad Max does not look like Gibson

Seb looks like Matthew Broderick in his better days...

And Max looks like a Billy Zane they finally wrung from the wreck of the Titatnic...

It appears very similar to Rage in many respects.  Let's hope Avalanche is better with this genre than was id.  

Avalanche's best work so far has been Just Cause 2... yawn.  My advice, DON"T PRE-ORDER!

I really love mad max, and the road warrior... I've been waiting for a game based on this IP for a LONG time...  Kinda nervous about how this is going to turn out, from the above interview.  :/

MAD MAX WAS A LONER!!!!!!!!!!!! Here they go again screwing up something that does not belong to the Universe of Mad Max. He did everything himself. The only companion that he should have is a Dog.

I really love how this game's atmosphere looks likes rage's, very beautiful!

They need to release a demo, simply because the screenshots show Mad Max driving what looks like a 70's model Stingray. I pray that is a random car Mad Max jumped into, because the Interceptor was a 1973 Ford Falcon coupe. The designers model of the Interceptor in the pics(if it is the Interceptor) are horrible!

@nick-nikol The game is in pre-alpha and probably won't be out till fall next year. They have over a year on this. Plus have you seen the game to be making such a comment?

@mattcake I doubt it. Everthing in this world sucks now. Food, Cars, Music, T.v, and Video Games.

@mattcake Even in the movies, he was never truly alone.  He might have started and ended that way, at least in the last two (Road Warrior, Thunderdome), but there was always someone or something else--whether it was a bunch of people, or an Australian cattle dog.

@Simplythebest12 Max looks like the dude in those Lara Croft ripoff games. They shoulda gotten Mel Gibson.

@Simplythebest12 I dont mind killing nazis but playing like one no way. Mel gibson is a joke and im glad he has nothing to do with this game.

@greenpolypThere is a reason why they said they are not sticking to any particular details of any of the movies. When games follow movies to the T they tend to suck, and the reason for that is because devs often include elements from movies that ruin the gaming experience because they don't implement well into a video game. You need to realize that there is a big difference between a movie and a game so what works well in one might not in the other. 

Do you have any idea how boring it could get driving around in a large barren wasteland with no interaction from the game world? Based on the description of the mechanic from this and other previews, the idea seems pretty good. Besides you have not seen how this has been implemented into the gameplay, yet you are already complaining. 

The key thing here is that its mad max the GAME not mad max the MOVIE, certain elements just can't be crossed over.

@Genghis_Khan_ It's not the Interceptor, the storyline is that Max's famed Interceptor has been stolen.

@Brakkyn Would love an Australian Cattle Dog, in the game and in real life :) I like *that* kinda company :P I don't mind other people being there for missions, sounds like this chumbucket guy is with you constantly though which would annoy me greatly :P

@Poison-tooth @greenpolyp in the first one he had that motorcycle buddy but well uhrm that didnt turn up so well :/ in part two he had many, the dog, the annoying chopper pilot, the feral kid and in three he was battling freakin Tina Turner XD cant remember that well but he had some sidekicks there as well.

@shikori_4 @greenpolyp Having an endless horde of Tribals running all over the place trying to cut your head off to use as a hood ornament. Or having to salvage dead bodies and half buried homes covered in sand trying to find anything you can trade in the numerous towns littered across the wasteland. I didnt say that no one else should be in the game, I said that he should be the only one fending for himself.Thats what the basis of Mad Max is, Survival.

@shikori_4 @greenpolyp The Nightriders crew were many, and I would definately call Humungus followers in the Road Warrior a hoard if I was being chased by them.

shikori_4

@greenpolyp Yes ,but chumbucket isn't their to fend for max, he is there as a part of the gameplay. His job is to talk shit so you don't get bored, scurry around and patch shit up, tell you what parts you need, take over the wheel so you can get out and fight off the marauders while the car is in motion, etc. 

Also I don't get the sense that its an endless horde of tribals, because having too many npcs around would ruin the post apocalyptic, hopeless and barren feel. I would imagine (if I know avalanche) that there would be moments where its just you, the road and the scenery. An endless horde would also ruin the pacing of the game. 

Some of the side elements aren't necessarily true to the franchise, but they make the game fun to play, which is important. They seems to be sticking with the general atmosphere so I don't any issue. I am also glad they decided to use Australian Accents as that's also important to the atmosphere of mad max.
