Avalanche will surely know the chant "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie -- Oi, Oi, Oi" by the time they're finished with the Mad Max
videogame. Our drive
to have an Australian accent for the titular character has been doing the rounds ever since E3, and while we helped champion unsuccessfully
for Mel's brother Donal Gibson to throw his voice-talent behind Max (despite being born in the US, much like Mel), it's looking like the franchise's Aussie roots aren't being nearly as forgotten as we thought they may have been.
Aussie comic book scribe and friend of the site, Tom Taylor (The Deep, Injustice: Gods Among Us), revealed today via Facebook that he's been brought on board to help flesh out the backstory to Avalanche's Mad Max interpretation, giving us a link to a motion comic published by DC with art by Jason Shawn Alexander. (He also uses the word "petrol" and not "gas").
Check it out embedded below. Mad Max is scheduled to release in 2014 on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
