We Aussies spake loudly and proudly and made our voices heard... in order to make our voices heard in-game.
Warner Bros this morning pointed us to a tweet by Christofer Sundberg, Founder and Executive Producer of Avalance, developers of Mad Max.
The tweet read:
Attn. fans who want Max to have an Aussie accent in #MadMaxGame. It shall be so. We admire your loyalty. You have been heard.
This doesn't suggest that Max will officially have an Aussie accent above others, however, and could mean that he is given an Aussie accent option.
Which would be just fine with me.
No word on whether the setting for the game would also be altered to be actual Australia instead of a non-descript Western post-apocalyptic country, but that's hardly a trivial change, and since the films only happened to use Australia while officially being non-descript, that shouldn't be much of a killer anyway.
