Mad Max PS4-Exclusive Content Revealed

PlayStation players getting 12 twelve hood ornaments, exclusive to PS4 through November 2015.

114 Comments

With the Mad Max release date now just days away, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 edition of the car-combat game is getting some "exclusive" content.

This content comes in the form of 12 hood ornaments for your car, seven of which are shown off in the video below. The DLC will be exclusive to PS4 through "at least" November 30, 2015, after which point it may come to Xbox One and PC, though Warner Bros. has yet to announce any specific plans.

The Mad Max PS4 exclusive hood ornaments include:

  • Longlooker
  • Wez Pads and Hawk
  • Humongous Mask
  • Feral Boomerang
  • Aviator Helm
  • The Furry Toadie
  • Bearclaw's Mask

Mad Max is not the first multiplatform game with timed-exclusive content for PlayStation platforms. Others include Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Destiny, Batman: Arkham Knight, Hitman, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5.

PlayStation president Andrew House explained earlier this year that these types of exclusivity deals with multiplatform titles are especially important for the company this year because Sony's lineup of first-party games is "a little sparse."

Recently, Mad Max developer Avalanche Studios announced the game's PC system requirements and published an interactive trailer that lets you choose your own mayhem.

It's a particularly busy year for Avalanche, as the studio will ship another high-profile game--Just Cause 3--just three months after Mad Max, on December 1.

I'm loving the game but I can't seem to find any info on upcoming patches, my only problem with the game is the framerate. I should've got it for PC but I was at Walmart late one night and decided to pick up the one version because my ps4's hd is full and after reading eurogamer they say that the one version actually runs better and at the same resolution(don't hear that much) But I recommend this and I think it deserves a better rating than GameStop gave it I think ign is closer to the mark.

I doubt some hood ornaments are going to sway people's decision on what console to buy the game on.

I'm glad I bought an Xbox. I'm a huge Halo fan so I'll always buy Microsoft, but there's a lot of other great exclusives on the Xbox One as well.

Off Topic:

All though I own and love both consoles(my babies) lol, it boggles my mind how the Xbox One. Only do good on Black Fridays/ Holidays because of the gift cards and 4 sometimes 5 games. In the US/UK but still can't mange to outsell the PS4 worldwide. Xbox One have the Better holiday lineup,everyone known this since E3. But still can't mange to win a single month after their big holiday lineup anouncement. One would think that the release of Gears, Halo 5, Tomb Raider and rare play this yr.

They would sell equal or more than the PS4 from there on out at let in the US/UK. Microsoft is doing all they can but Black Friday seems to be their only competitive advantange in the US/UK. The Xbox One outshines the PS4, due to more incentives offered over the PS4.

@iambattlecry: My only guess is people buy what their friends have. If all my friends had an xbox1 I'd probably of bought it by now, even though I'm a huge ps fan. But they all switched from 360 to ps4. The reason I've heard is that it's more powerful. And that was true more at release than now. I really think the gap is going to widen. I still have friends just now buying a ps4 even though they were 360 fans last gen, just because we all are playing destiny on it. I bought a ps3 last gen and mostly was stuck playing solo. No one wants that.

@gottago42: Having exclusives that arent even reviewed yet for 2 months outta the year isnt much to be bragging about. Especially when one of them isn't even a true exclusive. Not sure if you're trolling or just trying to make your console purchase more justifiable.

@7tizz: Didn't MS invest in a 3rd party timed exclusive for the holiday also? I think both companies are stupid for doing this.

@gottago42: We get it... you like your xbox1. Congrats. No one really cares what system you're buying it on. And I doubt anyone cares about these hood ornaments either. The game will be the same on both systems. No need to bash one system, like the one you own is going to play the game better.

sounds great looks great, but nobody's buying $hit without the review, and the fact that it's so late is more than fishy.

1st party games "a little sparse" is an understatement. I just saw a 30 second PS4 ad for the "best place to play" and every single game was a 3rd party title with "timed exclusivity"

At any rate it doesn't really matter once Fallout 4 comes out none of these other games will matter anyways so it's probably good Sony doesn't have a damn thing coming out nobody would have time for it.

@Chaz456: That's a very good point about fallout 4. Isn't a huge timed exclusive coming out the same day? Makes no sense businesswise. When is uncharted remake coming out? Thought it was this holiday. Isn't that a 1st party title? People that switched from 360 to ps4 are gonna gobble that up to catch up on the series before uncharted 4.

@Chaz456: Exactly. It doesn't matter right now what exclusives are coming out because Metal Gear Solid and Fallout 4 are coming out. Those two will outsell any of the exclusives. They will keep me busy until Uncharted 4 comes out.

First of all, I am not against exclusive content. But if that exclusive content is a game changing one, I am all for it. But cosmetic changes as DLCs on a single platform simply is outrageous. I will never support that kind of business decision whether it be Microsoft or SONY. Coming to the talk about which platform is going to run this game better; that's subjective. As a PC gamer first, I would love to see multiplats do well on my system of choice. However, having seen what Batman AK turned out to be, I am not so sure. Still, I am a gamer so I have absolutely no ego issues and will surely get this game for my PS4 should the PC version get botched. Lastly, I see some idiots who sadly claim to be PC users crow about 4K at 60fps. In my 25+ years as a PC gamer, if there ever was a huge BS, this would be it. I am not saying 4K at 60fps is impossible. All I am saying is why not provide the facts out there before you spew such garbage. Only a high end multi-gpu setup featuring a 980/980Ti or Titan X would be capable of doing that. With that comes a price to pay, which is huge. So let's keep things simple when comparing PC with consoles. How about 1080p at a constant 60 fps which the consoles are currently struggling to achieve in every game. Peace.

@starjay009: funny I run 4k 60fps all the time, on a single GPU. Not always maxed out obviously but still way above console settings.

I can get 40+ fps 4k on The Witcher 3 at Ultra. Turn it to high and it can hold 60.

Getting really, really tired of this. I bought a PS4 to play exclusive games, not so Sony can pay developers to keep content away from my Xbox friends. Seriously starting to piss me off. MS was heavily bashed for this type of BS for years. Now the tables have completely turned. Sony is throwing money around faster than they can withdraw it and MS is doing this less and less. And half the stuff Sony is paying for is a total waste of money. Just because your console is selling well, doesn't mean its ok to flush money down the drain.

@bdrtfm: Maybe it's payback for MS paying for tomb raider for a year? I don't agree with it either. Like in destiny, there's no reason xbox doesn't have the same guns/maps as ps4. I know it's all business, but dirty business on both sides. Buying hood ornaments is no big deal. If I were to buy this game it'd be on ps4 anyways, because that's what I own... vice versa if I owned a x1. If I owned both, it come down to which system I multiplayer on most.

@bdrtfm: May I remind you that both of these consoles will be 2 years old in 3 months and both have yet to reach there limits. I'm sorry but both MS/Sony are just fighting exclusive content then they can for games. I own 3 current-gen consoles and all 3 are okay to me but have yet to reach there limitations. Still upcoming games I'm looking forward to playing like Halo 5 and Fallout 4 [PC version for me] and MGS5 on PS4.

With so little hype around this game, I'm wondering if its a really REALLY bad thing, or really good thing. This might be the sleeper hit we need this gen, then again it could be a total dud.

This is what exclusive content should be, just cosmetic stuff. Would be better is there was no exclusive content at all, but if there has to be I'd rather it be stupid head ornaments instead of real content.

Can't say I saw this one coming lol

On another note, Mad Max does look pretty cool and it should be a great game especially since the Just Cause devs are behind it but I'm sorry...Sept. 1st belongs to Metal Gear. Why they would release this game on the same day is beyond my comprehension. From a marketing standpoint, it was just a bad move
