📕 Description [fr]

Un jeu d'aventure et de combat motorisé dans lequel le joueur incarne Mad Max, par le studio Avalanche Studios, portage par le studio Feral Interactive.

Mad Max est un jeu d'aventure et de combat motorisé dans lequel le joueur est Mad Max, un ex-policier et conducteur chevronné, essayant de survivre dans un monde (ouvert et) post-apocalyptique. Après s'être fait agresser par une bande de fous sanguinaires qui lui ont volés son véhicule et l'ont abandonné au soleil, Max conçoit lui-même la voiture parfaite (dénommée Magnum Opus), aidé d'un mécano surdoué. Il partira ensuite explorer le désert à la recherche de ressources, rencontrant de nombreux ennemis qu'il affrontera au corps à corps ou en voiture.


Dans un monde qui a sombré dans la folie, seuls les plus fous survivent.

Incarnez Max, guerrier solitaire dont l'unique espoir d'échapper à une mort atroce est de décimer les clans de dégénérés qui pullulent aux quatre coins des Terres désolées. Courses-poursuites frénétiques, duels tôle contre tôle sur l'asphalte et combats sauvages au corps et corps : tous les moyens sont bons pour exterminer la vermine qui hante les routes !

Après le vol de son Interceptor, Max n'a d'autre alternative que de faire équipe avec Chumbucket, un mécano surdoué. Ensemble, ils mettront alors tout en œuvre pour transformer une épave rouillée en "Magnum Opus", le nec plus ultra des véhicules d'assaut. Libre à vous de concevoir, personnaliser et faire évoluer ce bolide pour vous frayer un chemin au plus vite vers les Plaines du Silence : châssis, armes, blindage et moteurs surboostés ne sont que quelques-unes des améliorations que vous pouvez apporter à votre monstre mécanique !

Préparez-vous à explorer les Terres désolées et à découvrir en toute liberté un monde post-apocalyptique ouvert truffé de lieux immersifs dont certains sont les vestiges de notre civilisation ! Au cours de votre périple, vous croiserez le chemin d'innombrables énergumènes fous à lier et farouchement déterminés à vous massacrer.

Forteresses

Pas moins de quatre forteresses trônent fièrement au cœur des Terres désolées. Chacune d'elles fait office de Q.G. où Max peut se ressourcer, se réapprovisionner et entreposer les véhicules dont il s'est emparé.

À chaque forteresse son leader charismatique ! Alliez-vous avec ces "souverains" et libérez leurs territoires ! Vous pourrez ainsi conjuguer vos efforts dans un but commun : éliminer Scrotus le Scabreux, seigneur protecteur attitré de Pétroville.

Mad Max est un jeu vidéo de combat motorisé en monde ouvert développé par Avalanche Studios et édité par Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Le jeu prend place dans l'environnement post-apocalyptique de la franchise Mad Max.

Dévoilé officiellement le 10 juin 2013 lors de la conférence Sony à l'E3 2013, la sortie du jeu est dans un premier temps prévue pour 2014, avant d'être finalement reportée pour 2015. Le jeu est disponible en septembre 2015 sur PC, PlayStation 4 et Xbox One.

Système de jeu

Le joueur incarne Max Rockatansky, un ex-policier et conducteur expérimenté et chevronné essayant de survivre dans un désert hostile et sans fin, ravagé par le chaos et la destruction, tout en fuyant son passé et rongé par la vengeance. Un jour, il se fait agresser par les Warboys et leur chef Scrotus, qui lui volent son bolide (l'Interceptor) avant de l'abandonner au soleil. Avec l'assistance d'un mécanicien bossu un peu fou nommé Chumbucket, Max devra, pour se venger de Scrotus, fabriquer lui-même la voiture parfaite (Magnum Opus).
Le jeu est de type monde ouvert, le joueur peut explorer le désert pour y chercher des ressources, comme par exemple du carburant et de la ferraille pour la Magnum Opus, de l'eau, de la nourriture pour que Max régénère son état de santé, des jetons pour améliorer le personnage, etc. Max peut aussi rencontrer, en plus des ennemis, des vagabonds qui peuvent interagir avec lui. Pour les phases de combat au corps à corps, Max peut (à l'image de la saga Batman : Arkham), parer les coups de l'ennemi en appuyant sur la touche appropriée. Quand un ennemi est à terre, ou bien affaibli, Max peut exécuter des combos avec son fusil et augmenter son niveau de rage. Le deuxième type de combat se fait au volant d'un véhicule, qu'il s'agisse de la Magnum Opus ou pas. Les Warboys et autres malfrats sont équipés de voitures de combat, et n'hésitent pas à attaquer s'ils voient le joueur, qui devra pour les combattre utiliser les talents de conduite de Max. La Magnum Opus et le personnage de Max peuvent être, et doivent être améliorés si le joueur espère traverser le désert sans encombres. Qu'il s'agisse d'augmenter la résistance de la carrosserie pour que Max puisse percuter les véhicules adverses, ou bien d'équiper la voiture d'armes comme un harpon, qui peut être accroché pour arracher des pièces, éjecter des ennemis de leur véhicule, ou encore augmenter le niveau de l'armurerie, le blindage, le moteur, le kit nitro, etc.

📕 Description [en]

In a world gone mad, only the maddest survive

Players become Max, the lone warrior who must fight for survival against the Wasteland’s savage factions by engaging in all-out melée combat and vicious vehicular combat.

Following the theft of his Interceptor, Max teams up with the gifted mechanic Chumbucket to build the ultimate survival vehicle, the “Magnum Opus.” Players design, customize and upgrade their vehicle by choosing from different car chassis and a myriad of upgrades including mounted weapons, armor and engines in order to escape to the Plains of Silence.

As they navigate the Wasteland, gamers will encounter a huge variety of enemies, in a gigantic post-apocalyptic open-world with a range of immersive locations, many of them remnants of the world before the apocalypse.

Strongholds

There are four Strongholds in the Wasteland. Each Stronghold can act as a base of operations, granting Max respite from the unforgiving Wasteland, and providing a place for him to store captured vehicles and replenish his health and supplies.

Each Stronghold has a charismatic leader. Ally with these rulers and liberate their lands, and you'll unite them against your common enemy, Scabrous Scrotus, the psychotic warlord and Protector of Gastown.


🌍️ Wikipedia:

Mad Max is an action-adventure video game based on the Mad Max franchise. Developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, it was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2015. Feral Interactive published the game's macOS and Linux versions. In the game, players control Max Rockatansky as he progresses through the wasteland building a vehicle, the "Magnum Opus", to do battle with a gang of raiders, led by Scabrous Scrotus, and to reach the storied "Plains of Silence", where he hopes to find peace. Mad Max emphasizes vehicular combat, in which players can use weapon and armor upgrades on their car to fight enemies. It is set in an open post-apocalyptic wasteland consisting of deserts, canyons, and caves.

Two other Mad Max games, developed by Cory Barlog and Interplay Entertainment respectively, were in production before the announcement of this game, but neither of them were successfully released. Although Mad Max is not based on the film series, it was inspired by its universe, and franchise creator George Miller was consulted during the game's pre-production. Avalanche Studios found developing a vehicular-combat video game a challenge because of their inexperience with creating that type of game. Announced at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo, the game was re-tooled during development and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions were canceled.

Originally planned for release in 2014, it was released in September the following year, several months after the theatrical release of Mad Max: Fury Road, the fourth film in the series. Mad Max received overall mixed reviews from critics. Although the game's environment, direction, vehicular combat, and graphics were praised, its quest design and story were criticized. The game became the eighth best-selling retail game in the United States in September 2015.

Gameplay

Mad Max is an action-adventure game set in an open world post-apocalyptic environment, emphasizing vehicular combat, in which the player is the eponymous Mad Max. According to its publisher, up to 60 percent of the game focuses on driving. Some weapons and tools, including flamethrowers and turbo boosts, are mounted directly onto the Magnum Opus, while others, such as a grappling hook and sniper rifle, are used in conjunction with the vehicle by Chumbucket, Max's assistant, or Max himself. Max's Magnum Opus, with its V8 engine and powerful ramming ability, can destroy enemies' vehicles and weaponry. When simultaneously driving and aiming, the game changes to slow motion to allow the player to toggle between targets. Although Mad Max primarily uses a third-person perspective, the player can switch to first-person view when fighting enemies while driving the Magnum Opus. Chumbucket repairs the car when instructed to do so or when the player exits.

To encourage exploration, the Magnum Opus can be upgraded with materials scavenged from the desert, by hijacking enemies' cars or collecting their car parts. An enemy can jump on top of the Magnum Opus to make it explode, but the player can avoid that by surrounding the car with hazards such as spikes. The player can access the garage screen throughout the game, allowing them to customize the Magnum Opus. Max's garage can change and modify the car's engine, chassis, wheels, body work, paint job, and its "shell". Upgrading one aspect of the car will negatively affect other aspects; upgrading the engine will allow Max to drive faster, but handling will be more difficult. The sound produced by the engine changes when the player changes, adds, or remove parts of the Magnum Opus. Max, his armor, and weapons are customisable; the player can unlock new skills and upgrades for him as he progresses through the game and earns experience points. Max is also customisable, with his clothing, appearance, fighting skills, and weapons being modifiable. Griffa, a wasteland wanderer, also offers Max tokens which can be used to upgrade his abilities.

Although the game has many choices (such as playing stealthily or aggressively), it emphasizes action over stealth. Mad Max features a variety of weapons, including Max's iconic shotgun, but ammunition is scarce and the game emphasizes melee combat over firearms. One weapon is the explosive Thunderstick, which can be lanced into an enemy's chest. The game has a free-flow combat system combining professional wrestling attacks and boxing techniques, similar to Warner Bros.' previous Batman: Arkham video-game series (in which indicators on enemies' heads remind the player when to strike, counter or make finishing moves). Attacks by Max during his "frenzied" state are more powerful than usual.

Mad Max's landscape consists of canyons, caves, deserts, and abandoned wastelands. The game's world is divided into several regions, with each having its own backstory and landscape. Unique landmarks and ruins can be discovered in each region. Side activities such as races, time trials, invading enemy fortresses, and eliminating enemy convoys can be found in each region. A region's threat level is lowered by completing these activities, facilitating its navigation. Each region has a boss, who can be found and defeated in their base. Some of the game's strongholds are friendly, and eliminating hostile strongholds gives Max additional quests and rewards. These strongholds can be upgraded, offering Max different benefits such as helping Max to collect scraps when the game is turned off, or restoring Max's health and shotgun ammo upon visits. Max can ascend in a hot-air balloon (permanently attached to the ground) to look for new objectives and locations. After seeing the objectives through binoculars, they are highlighted on the map. Max can be guided by Chumbucket in strategically completing his objectives. Max is accompanied by a dog companion called Dinki-Di, who can help players detect land mines. Max has limited climbing abilities, and objects that he can climb are highlighted in yellow.

Most resources in the game are scarce except for gasoline, which is needed for driving. The player can collect one jerrycan at a time, storing it in the back of the Magnum Opus, and can find collectibles (history relics) throughout the game. The relics are primarily photos and notes of the wasteland before the apocalypse. Food and water are vital to Max's survival; the player can collect them in the wasteland and use them to replenish their health. Max can also eat small animals, such as rodents, and maggots from decomposing corpses, to replenish his health, and areas where he can find food and supplies have crows flying around them. The player can venture into the Big Nothing, an uncharted, volatile area of the wasteland with dangerous sandstorms and no food or water in which rare parts for the Magnum Opus can be found. According to Avalanche, due to the "Big Nothing", the game's map is infinite. A dynamic day-night cycle, a weather system and a variety of environmental hazards are included in the game, whose terrain is affected by weather and natural disasters.

Plot

In search of fuel, highway patrol officer-turned-survivalist Max Rockatansky journeys to the Plains of Silence in his Interceptor. His voyage takes an unexpected turn when he runs into a group of War Boys led by Scabrous Scrotus, psychotic son of Immortan Joe and ruler of Gastown. The War Boys attack Max as he scavenges fuel, beating him and stealing his clothes, supplies, weapons, and car, leaving him to die in the desert. Max revives and catches them, and fights Scrotus on the Land Mover. Scrotus sics his dog on Max but it fails, so Scrotus kicks it off and attacks Max with a chainsaw. Max disarms Scrotus and drives the chainsaw into his head, but Scrotus throws Max off the Land Mover.

Max encounters and befriends Scrotus' dog, now wounded, and obtains a makeshift shotgun and clothes from a dead Wastelander. The dog wanders into a trap, and Max rescues it from being eaten by an overzealous, hunchbacked mechanic named Chumbucket who calls him the Driver. Chumbucket leads Max to a War Boys camp owned by Scrotus where Max sees his car (nicknamed the Black on Black) being dismantled. Chumbucket tells Max that he is building a car, the Magnum Opus, which has a few missing parts; Max agrees to search for them. They return to Chumbucket's home, a large ship, and start building the Magnum Opus, but are chased out when Stank Gum—one of Scrotus' Top Dogs—destroys the ship with explosives. In exchange for supplies and a workshop, Max helps liberate surrounding territories from Scrotus' War Boys. The leaders of the territories are Jeet, whose stronghold is an old lighthouse, and Gut Gash, whose followers believe that they will be protected from a flood in the remains of an oil tanker. He meets the slave concubine Hope and her daughter Glory, imprisoned in Gut Gash's stronghold. Max learns he must penetrate the Jaw, a massive gate protected by War Boys, and has the Magnum Opus outfitted with the Thunderpoon (an exploding harpoon). After blowing off the hinges and tearing down the Jaw, Max and Chumbucket save Pink Eye, a woman whose mechanical skill rivals Chumbucket's, from an invasion led by Stank Gum on her silo base.

While searching for a V8 engine for the Magnum Opus, Max learns about a race in Gastown with a Big Chief V8 as a prize. After winning the race against Stank Gum and defeating the fighter Tenderloin in a Thunderdome duel, Max receives the engine and the concubine Hope. His victory is short-lived; Scrotus (with the chainsaw still embedded in his skull) delivers the prize, then recognizes Max and attacks him. Max gets the upper hand, but is shot with a crossbow and thrown down a shaft. He is saved by Hope, who takes him to the Organic Mechanic. He is given a blood transfusion from Scab, also known as the Bloodbag. While Max is undergoing surgery, he hallucinates marrying Hope in a ceremony officiated by Chumbucket and a man with a dog's head. He also sees his dead wife, who tells him he is still needed. When Max wakes up, he and Hope steal the Big Chief, then escape to the temple of Deep Friah, a fire cultist.

At the temple, Hope asks Max to find Glory, who had escaped and fled to Buzzard territory. He eventually agrees, and travels to the Underdune, an airport submerged under sand. After Max rescues Glory from the Buzzards, he returns to the temple to discover that Chumbucket, frustrated by Max's insistence on crossing the Plains of Silence, has taken the Magnum Opus back to his destroyed home in the south. Max follows him in one of Deep Friah's cars, but discovers that Scrotus and Stank Gum had already arrived and tortured Chumbucket, who revealed Hope and Glory's location and their ties to Max. Max kills Stank Gum, then rushes back to the temple to find Hope dead and Glory dying. Glory dies in his arms, and Max swears vengeance against Scrotus.

Max returns to Gastown and learns Scrotus' location from Scab. Max and Chumbucket pursue Scrotus through the Purgatory Flatlands, an area far away from the Great White, and use the Magnum Opus to disable the Land Mover, which is pushed to the edge of a cliff. Max intends to crash into the Mover and push it off a cliff with the Magnum Opus, but is opposed by Chumbucket, who does not want the Magnum Opus destroyed. Ignoring Chumbucket, Max rams the Mover at full speed. He jumps from the car at the last moment, but Chumbucket remains on board and dies, and the Land Mover and Magnum Opus are destroyed. As the two vehicles go over the cliff, Scrotus bursts out of the wreckage in the Interceptor, Max's car from the start of the game. Max fights Scrotus, ultimately pulling the chainsaw blade out of Scrotus' head, killing him. Max enters the Interceptor, placing a picture of his family on the dashboard before he leaves for parts unknown.
