Mad Max Gameplay Reveal Trailer Shows Punishing Wasteland

The Wasteland revealed in Mad Max's first extended gameplay trailer.


While Warner Bros. hasn't held back in showing off the new Mad Max movie, the same couldn't be said for the new Mad Max game from Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios.

But that ends today, as the developer has released an extended gameplay video, which shows off the game's car combat and customization, as well as its brutal melee features, and more.

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.

yeah, GS's compressed player is crap:

- doesn't pause when it has to;

- The audio icon sometimes doesn't work;

- you never know if "HD" stands for 720p or 1080p;

- the ad blocker on smartphones sometimes prevents the player from playing altogether.

This year is shaping up to be much better then the last one. I barely have time to play everything I want. Pillars of Eternity, GTA V, Witcher 3, Tides of Numenera, Life is Strange, Broken Age 2, Arkham Knight, possibly next Assassin, hopefully The Division, now this. Not to mention some serious backlog I still have. How am I going to manage my real life? Something's gotta give.

@nocny007: Which means you should have plenty of time for price drops on a lot of these titles
