Mad Max screenshots punch their way out of Gamescom 2013

Mad Max

By on August 23, 2013 at 9:16 am

A few new screens for Mad Max have appeared out of this year’s Gamescom, walking away from an explosion in slow motion, silhouetted against the flames. You can check ‘em out below (click to enlarge, yo).

In case you missed it, Avalanche Studios have relented to public demand and will be giving Max an Aussie accent rather than a generic American one. Love it.

What the hell did they do to the car?

 

Wrong car…game can kiss my ass!

 

That’s not the last of the V8 interceptors :(

(maybe it finally got blown up)

 

Looking at its curves it is based off a Vette, more Americanisation of Mad Max.

You DON’T fuck with Mad Max! grrr

EDIT – This or GTFO

MURICA…. Turning an Aussie Classic V8 into a Corvette and thinking we wouldnt notice….
pfft

 

I’m not going to drive that hideous creation. This is almost a deal breaker for me.

We don’t know much about the game yet, the car in the third screenshot above actually looks closer to the original (but still not quite right)

It’s entirely possible that you can loot/steal/find a whole range of cars for use in the game and customise them however you want. That’s maybe what we are seeing in these screenshots, as long as the V8 is available somewhere in-game we’ll all be happy, I’m sure. Fingers crossed this game isn’t a Aliens Colonial Marines level of media/hype train wreck.

 

The 3rd pic car is still another American model, I am just drawing a blank on the model.. it will come to me later. Both have tried to imitate the Interceptor, poorly.

It is just more American bastardisation of Mad Max :(

 

It could very well be an upgrade process for the cars. I just hope, hope, hope the original design is in the game somewhere. IE the ultimate car in the game sorta thing.

Third car kinda has a Chevy Nova look to it.. front end anyway.

 

Rather juvenile level of art and design. What’s with the U-boat with the V1 wings sticking out?

 

Games on net, where you can bag out a game you haven’t even seen the full gamut of yet. Well played…

 

ashigaru,

Maybe they should think a bit more about what they show? Releasing something for public viewing leaves it wide open for judgement and critique.

 

There is/was a guy at Narromine that owned an Interceptor replica, it was amazing.

 

It’s not that they have changed the car and hoped the Australians wouldn’t notice, we are but a small market no matter its origin. Basically, they want to appease the yanks and don’t care about sacrificing the tiny bit of aussie dollar.

America, F$*% yeah!

 

Nice little video about the evolution of the Interceptor.

ashigaru,

Mad Max’s nationality and car are probably the two biggest reasons Aussies have such a soft spot for Mad Max. Both Australian (yeah, I know the V8 in the XB may have been imported).

I’m sure the rest of the world couldn’t give a crap about what he sounds like or drives, but for Aussie fans that’s a big part of the charm.

Having said that, I wouldn’t be jumping to the conclusion that the Interceptor is gone from a few screenshots. For all we know there is a selection of cars that include the Interceptor.

Everytime I see an article for Mad Max, I’m reminded of this that Ratbag had been working on.

 

Guys there’s going to be more than one car in the game. Chances are they picked the car that would appeal to the biggest audience (Americans). Don’t sweat it.

 

Tim Colwill,

and that is the exact problem. American bastardisation of something iconically Australian, to suit Americans. Lets take The Lone Ranger and put him on a Kangaroo.

This is what I’m pointing out. I’d be disappointed too if we can’t get he original interceptor! I just get sick of people writing off a game based on 3 screenshots with no contextual basis beyond “this is our game, yay!”

If we have to push for another call for the original car as well as an Aussie accent then I’ll help out with that :D
