Mad Max gameplay
Main character of the game Max Rockatansky, also known as The Road Warrior, is alive and kicking. The game genre is action-adventure, so be prepared that you will have to drive most part of the gameplay. Mad Max will have range of usable weapons, from his classic shotgun to a vehicular harpoon. In post-apocalyptic world ammo is too rare to be used recklessly, so your best option is a melee combat. Developers added upgrade feature which was highly expected. You can upgrade Max’s Magnus Opus by adding flamethrowers, spikes on wheels and even cannons, in order to destroy your opponents in most brutal way! When shooting and driving at the same time, game will start a slow-motion mode for better aiming, allowing you choosing your next target. The whole game has a third-person perspective, but when driving Magnus Opus and engaging combat, you will be granted an ability to switch to a first-person mode. Mad Max game features an open world, so in order to encourage exploring the world, developers added many hidden places. Magnum Opus can be upgraded by found materials in Max’s garage. You can also customize armor and weapons there. All the car parts like chassis, engine, wheels and god know what else, can be upgraded. But as in real life, by upgrading one characteristic you will decrease the other. Great example is that engine upgrade will give a speed increase, but also handling decrease.
In-game landscape copies the landscape from an original movie. Wastelands, deserts, caves, canyons and mountains are present. In-game world is separated in several big regions and each region has its own features, quests, landscape etc. Great addition is the fact that every region has its own boss and game tasks, such as defeating enemy convoy or destroying enemy fortresses. Developers decided to add history relics to the game. If you are lucky to find it, you will be granted by photos and diaries of people who lived in pre-apocalyptic world.
Developers implemented a day-night cycle and changing weather into the game. Great example of it is a “Big Nothing” area of the game. No food or water can be found there, dangerous sandstorms are swarming the place, but what makes it very attractive to players is that rare upgrade parts can be found in it. Every terrain type will react to weather changes making game experience truly awesome.
