The new Mad Max trailer introduces a freakshow. What sort of a name is Gutgash?

Well done Warners, you haven't put any Muse in this one like you did all the Batman stuff. I did have some money on Mad Max being a bit of sleeper hit until they decided to release it the same day as Metal Gear Solid 5. I like Avalanche and I think there's some great potential in putting a post apocalyptic spin on the studios Just Cause-style action. But going against MGS5? Dead man walking.

Here's the trailer with a bit of spiel from Warners to explain why Max is angry and everything explodes.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Avalanche Studios today released the Mad Max ™ Stronghold Trailer, giving a glimpse into the various fortified outposts, or strongholds, located throughout the open world of the post-apocalyptic Wasteland. In the new trailer, Max visits some of the game’s diverse strongholds and encounters a number of intriguing characters, including Jeet, Gutgash, Pink Eye and Deep Friah. In a world where Max faces both his internal and external enemies, these strongholds hold the pieces essential to the puzzle he tries to solve. Max will need to make some uneasy alliances as he prepares to take on merciless Wasteland tyrant, Scrotus.
