The Mad Max game is being released for Linux later this month on 20 October.

The Mad Max open-world action adventure game was released for Windows in September of 2015. The game achieved decent ratings with a Metacritic score around 73. The game is self-described as, "Become Mad Max, the lone warrior in a savage post-apocalyptic world where cars are the key to survival. In this action-packed, open world, third person action game, you must fight to stay alive in The Wasteland, using brutal on-ground and vehicular against vicious gangs of bandits. A reluctant hero with an instinct for survival, Max wants nothing more than to leave the madness behind and find solace in the storied “Plains of Silence.” Players are challenged with treacherous missions as they scavenge the dangerous landscape for supplies to build the ultimate combat vehicle."

Feral Interactive is responsible for this port and will be releasing Mad Max for Linux on 20 October.

The Linux system requirements for this game list the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti as minimum while recommended is a GeForce GTX 970 or better. The NVIDIA 367.35 driver is the minimum binary version supported. There is no mention of any AMD/Mesa driver support at this time.
