Carmageddon has rubbed shoulders with the likes of DOOM and Mortal Kombat since its 1990’s inception, and has continued to wield controversy in one hand, while keeping its cult adoration firmly grasped in the other.
The ultraviolent roadrage saw a patchy PC reboot in 2014’s Reincarnation, but the bloodthirsty series appears to be gearing up again, this time headed for release on consoles (via Eurogamer).
Carmageddon: Max Damage will be released for PS4 and Xbox One, and is planned to launch in mid-2016. Creator Stainless Games aim to revive the pandemonium of the original Carmageddon, including fast-paced racing that rewards for efforts outside of merely finishing first. Whilst normal racing is certainly possible, players can win stages by running over pedestrians and causing automobile carnage on the road. The game’s official page states that players can “enjoy granny mangling, nun chucking (and) beach babe bouncing“, with all manner of shapes, sizes and species thrown into the mix.
Max Damage will also possess three main modes, offering opportunity to rise through the ranks in Career Mode or unlock Freeplay. Stainless have also mentioned that a Multiplayer Mode will also be included.
After Reincarnation’s lukewarm reception, Max Damage seems adamant to offer much more in this follow-up package. According to Eurogamer, a PC version will later be released. If you currently own Reincarnation on PC, you’ll be able to pick up Max Damage’s PC port for free.
If you’re a fan of Carmageddon’s trademark shock-factor, looking to vent your road rage or in pursuit of some dire, vehicle-oriented antics, Carmageddon: Max Damage might be worth a look. The game is set for release on Playstation 4 and Xbox One in mid-2016, with a PC version expected to follow.
