Director George Miller, who is the originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary Mad Max franchise, is now releasing his fourth film in the world, with Mad Max: Fury Road hitting theaters on May 15th.
This time around, Road Warrior Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) is haunted by his turbulent past, and even though he believes the best way to survive is alone, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig that is driven by Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), who is transporting stolen cargo from the evil Immortan Joe.
We traveled to Avalanche Studio's office in Stockholm, Sweden, to test our mettle in an exclusive hands-on session in the open-world Wasteland.
I survived several hours roaming a vast, dried-out sea bed looking for trouble, and compiled the moments that made me feel most like the Road Warrior himself.
Max's deformed, Igor-like mechanical assistant, Chumbucket, refers to the game's featured vehicular murder machine as the Magnum Opus.
Pursuing and taking down enemy vehicles feels awesome.
Play as Mad Max, a lone warrior who must embark on a dangerous journey after his Interceptor is stolen by a deadly gang of marauders.
