The Mad Max video game will soon be here so you can play as Max in an immense open world game. The PS4 and Xbox One Mad Max release date is tied to the Mad Max Fury Road release date, but it might surprise you that this is not a tie-in game.
The Mad Max Fury Road DVD release date is set for September 1st, and that is the same day to expect the Xbox One and PS4 Mad Max release.
Since we watched the Mad Max movie we’ve been keeping a close eye on the Mad Max game to see if it can fill the desire for post-apocalyptic mayhem on PS4 and Xbox One. If you are hoping to play as Imperator Furiosa, you are out of luck as the game focuses on Mad Max.
Buy the Mad Max game for PS4, Xbox One or PC for $59.99.
Here is a fast look at the Mad Max release date game details that you need to know about, exclusive content and any connection to Mad Max Fury Road.
Mad Max Release Date and Time
The PS4 and Xbox One Mad Max release date is September 1st at 12:01 AM on digital and at select midnight release date events.
Like many games, the Mad Max release time is 12:01 AM Eastern, and it arrives simultaneously in other time zones in the U.S. This means you can play at 11:01 PM on August 31st in Central and 9:01 PM in Pacific. This is the same for digital and for disk versions at the limited midnight Mad Max release date events.
GameStop is open late at many locations, but not all, for Mad Max and Metal Gear Solid 5. Check before you go out as many stores that are normally open are not staying open late for the Mad Max release date.
Mad Max Game is Not Mad Max Fury Road
This is not a Mad Max Fury Road game. Instead of a two-hour car chase, this game will place you into an open world where you can engage in vehicle battles and on foot battles. You can use customizable parts and vehicles to get through the wasteland and take on enemies.
You do not play as Charlize Theron as Imperator or Nux and you don’t take on Immortan Joe or the flame wielding guitarist.

Mad Max Deals and Pre-Order Bonus
