Mad Max Will Not Have Multiplayer


The recently announced Mad Max game from Warner Bros. Interactive and Avalanche Studios will be a single-player title only. Warner Bros. confirmed this decision, stating it will be a “strong single-player experience.”

Creative director Frank Rook told GameSpot:

There’s no multiplayer at the time. It’s a very strong single-player experience and of course Max is a longer and we’re really focusing on that aspect of Max.

I, personally, like this decision. A multiplayer mode for Mad Max would more than likely feel tacked on as an afterthought, instead of a fleshed out game mode. Now gamers can focus on the back story within the world of Mad Max instead of getting their next rank.

Mad Max will be a third-person action game with a heavy focus on car combat. This almost brings to mind Rage, only without the first-person view. Hopefully the game can stay true to the films and immerse us in this amazing post-apocalyptic world.

Mad Max will be released sometime in 2014 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
