The driving model in Mad Max will be somewhere between realistic and arcade, as the cars have a lot of weight to them, and are a blast to drive.
@caledoniacation There's a lot of weight to the cars, but they are also a blast to drive. It's hitting that sweet spot 🙂

Avalanche has just recently released a gameplay trailer for Mad Max and it is absolutely stunning. If you have missed it you can watch the trailer below:
Players take the role of Mad Max in a post apocalyptic world
Players take the role of Mad Max, in a post apocalyptic world, in an action packed open world third person action game. Mad Max will feature a variety of weapons, of which the shotgun is Max's weapon of choice, but since ammo is scarce, melee options are the smarter way to go.
Max traverse through "The Big Nothing", an unmapped volatile area. Max can eat small animals as rodents and maggots to replenish his health. Mad Max will feature a crafting system which can be used to craft new weapons and tools. Max's garage can be used to change and modify the car's engines, chassis, wheels, body works, including paint treatment, and the "shell" of the automobile.
