Mad Max is an action-adventure video game set in an open world environment and based on the Mad Max film series. It is developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 1 September 2015 in North America, 2 September 2015 in Australia, 3 September 2015 in New Zealand, and 4 September in Europe.
The game is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, which features terrain like deserts, canyons, and caves. Players control Max Rockatansky as he progresses through the wasteland to seek revenge on a gang of raiders who robbed him, and to build the ultimate car, called the Magnum Opus. The game puts heavy emphasis on vehicular combat, in which the player uses weapon and armor upgrades on their car to fight against enemies. The game features soft boundaries leading to an area called the "The Big Nothing", a theoretically endless place players can explore. The game's story is not based upon the films in the series, but took inspiration from its universe.
