Interactive Entertainment and Avalanche Studios have released a gameplay trailer for Mad Max, which puts player in the role of the film franchise’s star, left in a post-apocalyptic wasteland without a car. Or much of anything else, really. But once Max does assemble a new ride, everyone better get out of his way.
It’s a lengthy trailer — it clocks in at about four and half minutes — that also provides a good overview of the setting, vehicular combat and the beatdowns. Oh, the beatdowns …

“I love the Mad Max movies,” Alexander tells USA Today, adding that the motion comic “was a great bit of nostalgia for me and also an opening to lend my own touches to this iconic character.”
