A new trailer for Carmageddon: Max Damage has just been released. The third in the upcoming combat racer’s ‘WE DO’ series, the video sees the game’s lethally-upgraded vehicles bulldozing a field-full of cows.
As seen in previous trailers, the many pedestrians targetable in Max Damage aren’t restricted to the bovine species. The first video in the series oversaw a selection of nuns being flung left-right-and-centre by the game’s innumerable cars, whilst the second confirmed that caravans will also be available.
Carmageddon saw its original launch on PC in 1997. The game’s strong emphasis on violent vehicular combat was considered controversial in some locations, with some copies replacing the game’s fragile human pedestrians with zombies and robots. In 2014, Stainless Games rebooted the game as Carmageddon: Reincarnation, to a rather patchy reception.
Carmageddon: Max Damage is scheduled for release on July 8 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One. Developer Stainless Games intend to bring back the road-raging mayhem of the original 1997 release, with players rewarded not just for winning races, but by ploughing into pedestrians and creating pandemonium on the road. Eurogamer reports that a PC version will be released later.
According to the game’s official website, those who preorder the game will receive two additional cars and four skins, as well as a digital comic.
