is primed and ready to release Mad Max next week, and the team wanted to share “one of our favorite experiences” with fans before they get their hands on the game.
The game features a signature ride for Max, the Magnum Opus, and Avalanche actually created the vehicle in real-life. Whether they roared around the Australian desert in it throwing pipe bombs out the back is unclear.
Lead artist, and designer of the Magnum Opus, Daniel Persson and narrative director Odd Ahlgren introduce us to it in this developer diary video.
“The Magnum Opus is the mad mechanic Chumbucket's vision for the greatest warmachine that has ever rolled the blacktop,” explains Ahlgren. Then he takes the real-life version to, a post-apocalyptic themed festival, where he battles to the death in a gladiatorial arena.
Nah, I made that last bit up. It's still a cool video though. Mad Max is out on September 1.
