“You have grown into a violent thing. A man of solitude, drifting across these sands. Fearing those who make you feel human.”
Avalanche Studios (Just Cause) with Warner Bros Game presents Mad Max Stronghold which will be available for PC- both Linux and Windows, PS4 and Xbox One on 1 September 2015.
Based on the boxoffice hit Mad Max franchise, the game lets players assume the role of a lone warrior in vast wasteland that has descended into a lawless, non-civilization society. The game developer confirms that the story is taking place before the events seen in Fury Road. Here, Max has to survive the environment, himself and a ruthless warlord named Scrotus. The strongholds, last remnants of civilization, are the key to his answer in that world.
The game is an open world sandbox, player can choose to ignore the story elements or embrace it as they see fit. Features such as dynamic weather, terrain affected by said weather and natural disasters plus the scarcity of everything are included. Max can choose to visit the strongholds in several regions of the game world or venture into Big Nothing on his own. If Max choose to complete the requests by the stronghold, the region will be more peaceful and less dangerous to go around.
Development has hit a few delays since it was announced at E3 2013 – first when the first demo came out, the game characters have American accent which was met with outcry from the fans. So the studio was forced to hire the Australian actor Bren Foster to do the Aussie accent. Second, the developers were forced to cancel the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions due to the limitations of the hardware to render the game. Avalanche also admitted that they find the vehicular combat a “challenge” due to their inexperience in handling it. This particular title is leaning heavily on the vehicular combat – 60 percent of the game requires player to fight enemies while driving the car.
Players who pre-ordered it will receive the Ripper, a nasty looking car accessory. The set also includes a steelbook, a collector’s box, a mini license plate and a Blu-ray copy of Mad Max: Fury Road in the game’s Post-Apocalypse Edition. Players who purchase the game for the PlayStation 4 can gain access to an exclusive content called the “Road Warrior Survival Kit”.
So far, the normal version is priced around US$59.88 (RM232) for PS4 and Xbox, no announcement for the Post-Apocalypse Edition yet.
