Mel Gibson seems to get into trouble whenever he gets behind the wheel (out-of-date topical zinger!), but that won’t stop Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Avalanche Studios from bringing Mad Max back for a new game due in 2014.
In the game, players step into the dusty boots of Mad Max as he scours the Wasteland on foot and in a variety of souped-up cars, with what the press release from WB promises to be “dynamic, open-world gameplay.”
“Mad Max places gamers directly into the driver’s seat of their ultimate customized vehicle to battle it out in the action-packed, open world of The Wasteland,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production & Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “We are very pleased to work with Avalanche Studios to provide a next generation gaming experience with robust fighting paired with dynamic vehicular combat."
“Over a decade of creating open world experiences has led us to this point,” said Christofer Sundberg, Avalanche Studios Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer. “The Wasteland lends itself incredibly well to the high level of player freedom with which Avalanche Studios has become synonymous. This unforgiving environment inspired us to create a gritty and diverse experience where driving, fighting and scavenging are essential for survival.”
