After staying quiet about it for some time now, Warner Bros announced today that Mad Max will release on September 1 in North America and September 4 in Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

As part of their cover story reveal, Game Informer confirmed that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Mad Max have been cancelled. According to them, the move “has allowed the team to deliver stunning vistas and effects that will challenge your expectations of what the Wasteland might look like. In short, it’s definitely not a bland, endless stretch of sand.”

Here’s the game’s description:

Mad Max delivers open world gameplay in a post-apocalyptic setting where cars are the key to survival. Developed by Avalanche Studios, gamers become Mad Max, a lone warrior who must fight to stay alive in The Wasteland, using vicious on-ground and vehicular combat against savage bandits. Following the theft of his iconic Interceptor, Max must align himself with a gifted, but peculiar, mechanic named Chumbucket and others to build the ultimate war vehicle as he works to escape from the dangerous Wasteland.

If you decide to pre-order Mad Max, you’ll be given an additional Magnum Opus car body called The Ripper, which packs a powerful V8 engine, upgraded exhaust with custom off-road tires, a ramming grill, and a tuned suspension so it can take on a variety of Wasteland surfaces.
