New gameplay video shows Mad Max game has a Thunderdome

A real Tina head-Turner.

The new Mad Max game by Just Cause developer Avalanche has a Thunderdome! That's a domed gladiatorial cage as made famous by film Mad Max 3 and strutting singer Tina Turner, who ran it.

That's not all the brand new Mad Max gameplay trailer shows - we see driving, combat, car/person customisation menues. In other words, we see the game and what it will be like to play.

It's handsome, dust billowing behind vehicles as they race across the harsh wasteland, giant explosions flaring into a relentlessly scorching sky above. What looks like rhythmical combat - a hallmark of publisher Warner's Batman Arkham series - delivers convincing heft, brutality and grunt.

The story is original, and there are factions to please and strengthen, all to your advantage. Ultimately you'll be put in front of the rulers of the wasteland and, presumably, have them answer for their sins.

Avalanche's Mad Max is due out 4th September on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
