Mad Max maps will be infinite
John Fuller, a senior producer for Mad Max, confirmed during a GamingBolt interview that the post-apocalyptic game will run at 1080P on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. He also revealed information about the size of the maps in Avalanche Studios' open-world game.
According to Fuller, you can drive around in the map until you get killed. The maps are meant to be endless and have no boundaries.
“There are no finite limits to the map… in other words, there is no ‘one side’.”
When asked how long it’ll take to traverse the map, he said:
“You can continue driving into The Big Nothing until you get bored or killed.”
But the obvious question is: how is an infinite map possible? Aren't there hardware limitations? Fuller briefly addressed those concerns in the interview as well:
“Our tech can support enormous worlds but it is always a case of balancing the density of content and travel distances so that the player feels they are in a rich world.”
Mad Max is meant to release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on September 1st 2015. The special edition of the Mad Max will have a mini license plate along with bonus DLC content. It will also have a copy of Mad Max: Fury Road on Blu-ray.
