April 23, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Offering up the first extended look at in-game footage, Warner Bros and developer Avalanche Studios revealed the Mad Max gameplay overview trailer today, which gives you a look at the story, melee and vehicular combat, car customization, and much more.

The press release adds, “All footage in the trailer is in-engine, comprised of actual game play and in-game cinematics.

Here’s the full video description:

Set in the post-apocalyptic future, the trailer provides a glimpse into the desperate struggle Max faces after losing it all – his family, his car, his sanity – and the steps he must take to survive in the harsh and desolate Wasteland. For the first time, players get an extended look at the deep car customization, metal grinding vehicular combat, brutal melee combat and a wide range of other activities they can engage in during their quest to build the ultimate survival vehicle, the Magnum Opus, and find solace in the Plains of Silence.

Over on the PlayStation Blog, Senior Producer John Fuller talked about how Avalanche is “busy putting the final touches to Mad Max” in this final phase of development.

He then discussed in-depth what’s going on with development right now:

Well, we are continuing to push the fidelity of The Wasteland and squeeze as much content and immersion out of the PS4 hardware as possible. True to the Avalanche Studios promise, we are cramming in content, both above and below ground level, to ensure that there are surprises around many corners. Apart from very desolate and barren landscapes, the prevalence of indoor locations is something quite new. You may have to look hard for many of them, but they’re worth it if you persevere!

It’s important that The Wasteland is a living, breathing entity — it’s one of the game’s most important characters. We are really pushing the weather systems, day and night cycle, skies and environmental effects so that the world feels as dynamic as possible. It’s not only the inhabitants of this world that are intimidating!

Mad Max releases on September 1 in North America and September 4 in Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
