Today, a gameplay trailer was released for the new Mad Max video game, and it was jam-packed with explosions and action.
The trailer describes how to use your vehicle to survive in that mad mad world. It highlights all the ways you can make your enemies go boom.
Your primary method of killing other cars in Mad Max is the good old-fashioned ram. Max’s new car, the Magnum Opus has a boost you can use to launch yourself into enemy vehicles, and you can also sideswipe left and right to smash up cars on either side. So far, so much like rush hour on London's North Circular, but Mad Max's weapons are where it gets interesting. Unlike your Ford Focus, the Magnum Opus comes equipped with a harpoon gun you can fire at specific spots on your enemies’ vehicles. Want to pull a wheel off and stop them in their tracks? Go for it. Or why not aim directly at the driver and yank them through the windshield? This is particularly useful if you want to keep the car intact and use it to infiltrate enemy bases. Or if you like dragging warboys around the wasteland like a psychopath.
The gameplay looks so amazing. I am usually very skeptical about video games that are made based on movies, but this Mad Max game looks like Borderlands meets Twisted Metal. What do you think about the gameplay video?
Mad Max releases September 1.
