Mad Max will speak like an Aussie, mate


Avalanche Studios is doing a U-turn to ensure Mad Max speaks the strewth. As we saw during the E3 demo of his upcoming game, Max spoke with an American twang, leading to fans calling for the road warrior's accent to be made Australian, as per the films.

Yesterday, Avalanche Chief Creative Officer Christopher Sundberg announced a downunder return for Max's voice, tweeting, "Attn. fans who want Max to have an Aussie accent in #MadMaxGame : It shall be so. We admire your loyalty. You have been heard."

What that means for Mad Max at large is unclear. As we noted in our E3 preview, Max's companion Chumbucket spoke with a hillbilly accent, suggesting the setting may not be Oz. As for what is fair dinkum, Avalanche's open-world is set to lay waste to PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime next year.
