Avalanche Studios has confirmed their upcoming Mad Max game will feature the infamous Max with an Australian accent. Fans of the franchise have been clamoring for this feature since the game was revealed at E3 and Avalanche has listened.
Gamers did what they do best when they do not like a feature or developer decision in a game, they began a petition. The U.S. voice actor that was originally planned for Mad Max was not well received. Good thing Avalanche loves its fans.
Attn. fans who want Max to have an Aussie accent in #MadMaxGame : It shall be so. We admire your loyalty. You have been heard.
