As the video explains, Mad Max drops players into The Wasteland with no possessions at all. Players must first build a car, the Magnum Opus, which can be upgraded and customized. This customization extends to hand-to-hand combat as well, as players can also upgrade their character's armor and weapons.

The video also reveals that players will find valuable scraps scattered through The Wasteland that they can collect to forge new weapons and upgrades for their car.

Finally, the new gameplay movie teases that players should expect to perform dastardly deeds if they want to survive. "The Wasteland is no place for a conscience," the narrator says.

Originally scheduled to launch in 2014, the new Mad Max release date is September 1 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game were canceled last month. As for the new Mad Max movie, Fury Road, it hits theaters on May 15.

It's a busy year for Avalanche Studios, as the developer will also release Just Cause 3 this holiday.
