Does Avalanche Studios And WB Games Have A Plan For DLC In Mad Max?

In today’s gaming marketplace it’s become more and more common for AAA developers to release a game with the intention of backing it up with downloadable content, so much in fact that we’re presented with the option to purchase a season pass even before the game has been released. And yet Avalanche Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Just Cause franchise, decided to take a completely different approach with the release of Mad Max.

Rumble City, however, is something entirely different. The open world is replaced by a strategic battle board, the massive destruction by cartoon brawling. In place of the traditional, singular action hero is a diverse cast of rugged bikers and street thugs.

Rumble City represents Avalanche Studios’ first venture into mobile gaming. It’s a passion project for a small strike team with a deep affection for tactical gameplay and 1960’s American biker culture. We lovingly refer to their invention as “biker chess”.
