Carmageddon is one of those series that has been berated by family support groups while being lapped up by fans across the world. At least where it is allowed to be sold anyhow. Starting life way back on PC’s before Windows was the #1 way to play games on computers, Carmageddon has seen it all. As the series went on the physics were improved along with the graphics. Ending kind of abruptly with the third entry the series saw a few console and hand held ports pop up. It has been a long time coming but another release in the series is upon us. Carmageddon – Max Damage is now coming to the Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles. Pre-orders are open and include some interesting extras. Now, about that release date.
The release on Playstation 4 and Xbox One has been pushed back from June 3rd to July 8th. The only reason mentioned for this change in the day the game drops is to give the development team a little more time to polish things up. A month is not that bad.
Pre-order bonus material includes two extra cars – The “Tez Eagle” and the “Iron Hawk”. There are also four skins- two extra paint jobs for each of those bonus cars. Pre-ordering also gets you an exclusive digital comic download – “Where Eagles Die”.
Carmageddon is not a series that has shied away from the over the top blood and guts action that fans of movies like Death Race 2000 like. It will be interesting to see how this console generation reacts to Carmageddon – Max Damage.
