When Stephen saw it or, rather, heard it, Mad Max's characters had no Australian accents and developers Avalanche Studios had no plans to include them, upsetting Mad Max devotees of all national origins. That posture has been officially reversed.

Attn. fans who want Max to have an Aussie accent in #MadMaxGame : It shall be so. We admire your loyalty. You have been heard.

Christofer Sundberg is the founder of Avalanche Studios, makers of badass action series such as Just Cause. So you may consider his word law. Glad we cleared that up! I know Luke will be pleased. Now, will Max walk with a limp? And will he drive a 1973 Ford XB Falcon GT351 Coupe?

DISCUSSION

I'm actually kind of surprised at how excited people seem to be for this game. Does the Mad Max brand actually stand for that much these days? Do people really care that much about the old movies?

If so, then I'm glad they're getting a game. I'm just kind of baffled that this is a thing.
