For some reason, I thought I might like smashing stuff a little less as I aged. I don’t know what was wrong with me. I guess I thought having a passion for destruction and going through adolescence were mutually dependent. But as long as there’s a controller in my hand, my love of old fashioned boom-boom seems to know no bounds! All of which brings me to Carmageddon: Max Damage, which, as you can likely surmise from the title, is a game rooted exclusively in providing righteous carnage, with little or no interest in supplying anything else. If you’re looking for anything new or special, look elsewhere.
Eager road-ragers will have to wait just a little longer to unleash vehicle carnage in Carmageddon: Max Damage. However, the team at Stainless Games are trying to soften the blow by offering new exclusive pre-order content.
Stainless Games and Sold Out Sales & Marketing announced the delay through a press release, where the companies revealed the game will be pushed from its original June 3 release date to June 5, 2016. The European launch is just a few days later on July 8.
According to the statement released by the developers, pre-orders for the cult favourite racing game will earn players exclusive in-game content, as shown below:
- 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”
These bonuses are exclusive to the boxed retail versions of Carmageddon: Max Damage. With only a two-day delay, the pre-order bonuses are an interesting move for developers to try to please fans. For anyone looking to unleash their inner speed demons, you can pick up Carmaggedon on PS4 and Xbox One this June.
