Mad Max is the first game set in the Mad Max universe to be released. A previous game developed by Interplay was cancelled because of the tumultuous development of the film Mad Max: Fury Road. The game is focused on vehicle-based combat, with the player building up their car (the Magnum Opus) over the course of the game.

Mad Max runs on the Apex Engine (formerly Avalanche Engine), which also powers the Just Cause series.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Unused dialogue from American voice actor for Max that shows cut side missions.
  • Find a way to rip the game's strings and see if there's any unused text.

Cut Collectibles

Possibly before the development of the collectible History Relics, the game was meant to have a set of 19 collectible items from before the apocalypse. The "Postcard" item survived into the final game as one of the many History Relics which can be found throughout the wasteland. The model of the doll head went on to be used as one of the hood ornaments for the Magnum Opus.

Cut Items

Large Jimmy Bar

The "Jimmy Bar" item was originally meant to have a "large" and "small" variant. The "small" variant became the default one in the final game.

Cut Graphics

Early Worldmap Regions

Early set of outlines for each region of the world on the map. Notable for the regions being shaped somewhat differently and the Dunes region missing entirely.
