News Here's Mad Max's Huge Open World Map From End to End
That's a lot of dust
Mad Max has had the misfortune of releasing on the same day as one of the most highly anticipated titles of 2015, and although we doubt that it'll be able to outperform Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain when it comes to sales, it still looks like a decent enough open world romp all the same. And, as with any game that's got...
Round Up Mad Max PS4 Reviews Hit the Highway
Wasteland or waste of space?
Mad Max has been in development so long that God of War II director Cory Barlog joined developer Avalanche Studios after the completion of the aforementioned PlayStation 2 sequel to work on it.

To be honest, it's pretty underwhelming: you'll...

Fortunately, Avalanche Studios hosted a lengthy livestream of the release...
Gamescom 2015 Mad Max Gets Philosophical in Fresh PS4 Trailer
Mad Max is about more than flying fists and exploding vehicles – who knew?

The clip's supposed to offer a brief glimpse at the various outposts that the protagonist...
E3 2015 Mad Max Trailer Guarantees More Insanity with Its Main Antagonist
What a lovely day
Mad Max has already impressed us with its massive open world where you can ride around in a customized car wreaking havoc in utterly crazy vehicular battles.

News Mad Max's New PS4 Story Trailer Is Less About Plot and More About Explosions
Ain't no time to explain
Sometimes you just want to bask in the glory of completely over-the-top action - we understand that. But if that's the case, then don't bother slapping the word 'story' on your game's newest trailer. As you've probably guessed, Mad Max's fresh video is less about narrative exposition and more about blowing things up...

In the newest issue of Game Informer, the publication reveals plenty about the...
News Mad Max Hits the Road on PS4 from 1st September
How to derail a carefully curated public relations push: set the embargo around the same time as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's release date leaks. Warner Bros couldn't have predicted this afternoon's circumstances, of course, but we suspect that a few folks at Swedish developer Avalanche Studios will be kicking themselves right...
