Mad Max game is not a movie tie-in
That’s right. Avalanche’s first game since 2011’s Renegade Ops is a Mad Max game, but it won’t be a movie tie-in.
Said Krafting, “We aren’t limited as such by the contents of the [new] movie,” Kraftling told us. “But we are able to use whatever contents of the movie that ties well into the games.”
He goes on to make sure we understand that the game isn’t a movie tie-in, stating, “It is a standalone experience. From the get go that’s how we wanted it, because movie tie-in games tend to be quite bad, and we really want to be wary of heading there. We wanted to create the game with a game experience as the primary focus, and we want core gamers to be able to enjoy this game. We want to enjoy the game ourselves. We want to make a game that we want to play.”
Will the upcoming Mad Max game be any good? Or will it suffer the same fate as many movie games, regardless of it not being a tie-in?
