There are a few reasons to be excited for Mad Max, the upcoming video game spin-off of the excellent Fury Road. For starters, the game is being developed by Avalanche Studios, the same developer behind the wild, open-world Just Cause series, and its publisher is WB Interactive, which has a solid history with licensed games like Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and the most recent Batman games. But more importantly, it's a chance to finally drive those insane, weaponized cars featured in the movies. "Car combat is our key feature," design director Magnus Nedfors tells Polygon. You can watch the latest trailer for the game above, with a first look at some of the gameplay — and be sure to check out Polygon's preview for a deeper look at the game. Mad Max launches September 1st on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
