Avalanche Pulls the Trigger on Mad Max Footage

Swedish outfit Avalanche Studios has put its foot down on the first in-engine footage of Mad Max. The title – which is set to shoot up the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 – will depict the eponymous hero’s plight, as he attempts to recover his lost vehicle, the Interceptor, from a barren desert wasteland.
Despite being dubbed a gameplay trailer, there’s only the slightest hint of actual in-game footage during the 90-second short. One sequence shows the star engaged in some Twisted Metal-style car combat, while another sees the lead character using a rope to infiltrate an enemy stronghold. Bit misleading that trailer description, then.
Still, we trust the developer to deliver a compelling open world experience. The title’s due out early next year, so the studio’s still got plenty of time left to show off the adventure's actual gameplay in the run-up to release. In the meantime, check out the footage below, and let us know if you’re excited in the comments section.
