Christofer Sundberg of Avalanche Studios Tweeted the news early this morning, pointing out his admiration of the vocal Mad Max fanbase, assuring us that we "have been heard", in what we can only describe as awesome news.While we don't currently know that our petition (and loud yelling) were the main instigator, it's amazing to hear that a games company is willing to listen to its fans and come through with the goods, despite having already established their character's tone for the game beforehand. Well done Mad Max fans around the world, especially the vocal Aussies who stood up for an Australian icon.

For more, be sure to check out our recent Mad Max preview, and stay tuned for more on the game and this change in development.

Awesome!

Now to either ask Mel to do it, or chase someone 'Aussie' without over-ockarising it!
(Maybe say, Sam Worthington?)

Hope it's not like what they did for naruto.. Fans wanted original jap voice actors and subs.. so they release it as paid DLC after launch

I would rather a decent game than someone with an Aussie accent.

They haven't actually said it would be an aussie voice actor, just an aussie accent...

Yes, well the point was that they were specifically going for a 'neutral' accent.

George Miller's new Fury Road will feature a British actor as Max, however you can bet your arse he will be speaking with a broad Australian accent.

They might f*** it up and do the accent terribly, but that's a production issue.

they'll probably just get nolan north to do an aussie accent.

good to hear. i also hope they give some of the landscape an australian scrub/bush look and its not all grey and sandy generic postapocalyptic style like the preview screenshots suggest

Most appropriately it should be an american voice actor with an aussie accent (As gibson was born in the USA)
