Carmageddon: Max Damage Delayed to July 8th

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
Carmageddon: Max Damage has been delayed from June 3rd to July 8th. But it's not all bad - publisher Sold Out and developer Stainless Games have released a heap of screenshots and a video to compensate. There's also a glimpse of the pre-order bonuses.

The new date will "allow the development team extra time to give the game a final polish before delivery and ensure it’s the best it can be for a new audience of console gamers," according to Sold Out. The vehicular combat series hasn't been released on a console since Carmageddon 64 in 2000.

Carmageddon: Max Damage will "give players an adrenaline shot of pure vehicular carnage and power-up fueled destruction, with a side order of pedestrian pummeling. Bystanders had better run for their lives as the crazed collection of speed freaks go head to head competing in a range of high-octane events. With insane PowerUps, surreal environments and a variety of ways to win, it all adds up to endless hours of violent and hilarious fun."

To showcase what they mean by "violent and hilarious fun," the developers have started a YouTube series called, "We Do Carmageddon," showcasing fan favorite destructibles. First up is nuns (viewer warning: it's a bunch of nuns getting run over.)

The pre-order bonuses have also been announced. A word of warning for digital buyers, these were described as "pre-orders offer for the boxed retail edition" and "retail pre-order customers get the added advantage of some exclusive bonus content," so it doesn't look like the bonuses will be available for digital pre-orders.

•Two extra player cars: The “Tez Eagle” and the “Iron Hawk”.
•Four skins: Two additional paint schemes for each of the cars.
•Digital comic: An exclusive digital download for pre-order customers, entitled, “Where Eagles Die”.
