The game, which was developed by Avalanche Studios, is available for £29.99. This deal will expire at 12 AM UK time on December 5, when it will be replaced with a new offer.

In addition to Mad Max, Sony is also offering Kingsman: The Secret Service at a discounted price. The movie can be purchased for £7.99.

In GameSpot's Mad Max review, Peter Brown awarded it a 6/10, saying it is "too focused on providing you with an open-world that's filled with missions, and not focused enough on making those missions worth your time."

He continued: "It's a shame because Mad Max's world in the game is beautiful, grim, and fascinating. Some interesting characters, impressive environments and great car combat draw you in and incentivise you to keep going, but it's when you get out of the car that things fall apart.

"Mad Max's combat system is too dumbed down to enjoy, and repetitive activities such as searching for scrap and invading small enemy camps gets old fast. Mad Max offers some great experiences, but for a game that tries to impose the realities of survival on you, it does a poor job of following up on this pressure."
