Mad Max servers to close soon — one achievement to be partially discontinued

By Sean Carey,
Servers for Mad Max are scheduled to close soon, and from what we can tell, one achievement — which involves a couple of server-reliant challenges — will be partially discontinued by the closure. According to the Microsoft Store, servers will go offline on October 31st, 2020, so this gives you about a month and a half to grab the Up to the Task achievement.

Although Mad Max is a single-player game, the Up to the Task achievement needs access to the Mad Max servers. To pop the achievement, you need to complete all non-repeating challenges in the game. According to our Mad Max walkthrough, two of these challenges, A Penny Saved and Dividend, require the Mad Max servers to be online. Of course, if you've already completed those two challenges, you should still be able to unlock the achievement. Looking at the TA ratios, Up to the Task seems to be the most difficult to unlock. At the time of writing, 97,818 TA users have started the game, but only 3,684 have popped the achievement.

We have a couple of in-depth achievement guides attached to this one, and of course, the walkthrough. A full completion for Mad Max will take between 60 and 80 hours, according to estimates. With the servers closing on October 31st, you have just under two months to complete the challenges need for the achievement. Good luck!
