I went and preordered the upcoming Mad Max game on PC via Green Man Gaming today, this due in part to a newsletter mail I got from them that the game is in their VIP Deals section with 40 % off.
What I have seen of the game looks really good and I thought this was a good time to actually go and preorder it.
The game's plot is gonna be simple, Max's car gets stolen by a band of lunatic bandits called the War Boys lead by Scabrous Scrotus, who is the son of the psychopath Immortan Joe and he gets real badly beaten up in the process before being left for dead in the wasteland with no supplies or anything.
But he however survives and he encounters a hunchbacked mechanic by the name of Chumbucket who is obsessed with creating the perfect vehicle, the Magnum Opus, and they form an unlikely partnership after he tells Max that this could be his best shot at getting revenge on Scrotus.
You will be able to build your very own wasteland car in this game with all sorts of different parts that you can find in the rusty husks and whatnot littered throughout this unforgiving world, of course you have to be careful with not putting on too many heavy things as it will affect how quickly the car can go and sometimes it might be better to have a light vehicle that can easily outrun and/or outmaneuver the raiders.
The game is also being developed by Avalanche Studios, the same Swedish company that gave us the Just Cause games as well as Renegade Ops, so you can expect some really over the top action-packed car battles in this.
Here are some trailers for it:
Eye of the storm:
September seems to be a good month for gamers with titles like Metal Gear Solid V, Mad Max and Eugen Systems' new strategy game Act of Aggression, I'd say these games will help us in the still long wait for Fallout 4 in november.
