The latest trailer for the upcoming Mad Max game has shown signs of changes, and it?s a good thing
Making a game for a tie-in to a movie can be hard, and a lot have failed to wow the gamers in adapting the movie to a game faithfully. Though very few can achieve in terms of developing a game where its game design compliments well from the aspect of the movie (one good example is Spider-Man 2 for the PlayStation 2 in 2004), we haven?t seen a decent movie-based game for years.
Hopefully the upcoming Mad Max game could change everything, with the release of a new trailer showing more details about the gameplay, let?s see if Warner Bros. can deliver a great game.
Players take control of Max, as he start off with nothing but his will to survive in this post-apocalyptic world. Your first goal is to build a new car; the Magnum Opus, which you can be upgraded from items that you found on the wasteland. You have full control on the customization such as putting add-ons that lets you ram on enemy cars or reduce the damage from impacts and improved vehicle speed plus many more.
Max can also be customized with an array of armors that will also change his appearance as well as enhancing his stats in order to survive longer in fights. Combat is very similar that from the Batman Arkham series; you can combo your way through mobs and counter any attacks. Ammo is very limited in the game, but you can use or craft makeshift weapons in order to survive, and don?t forget food is also scarce, so you might have to eat dog food in the game.
The game will be an open-world game, as you explore around the wasteland, you will always be hunted by rival factions to steal your loot, but not everyone is your enemy, you can help other characters and in return, they can provide you with nifty upgrades. Weather conditions can also disrupt your exploration, from sandstorms to thunderstorms, which can be an advantage if played correctly.
Mad Max is scheduled to release on September 1, 2015 for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, those who preordered the game can get a free Ripper vehicle DLC for free.
