Avalanche Studios has confirmed that its forthcoming Mad Max video game will feature a protagonist with an Australian accent.
This may not seem like a big deal at first, but for many fans of the franchise, Avalanche’s original decision to eschew Max’s aussie heritage and plump for a generic U.S. voiceover came as disappointment.
As a result, gamers started out a petition to have Max’s accent changed, and it seems to have paid off.
Writing on Twitter, Avalanche’s Christofer Sundberg commented, “Attn. fans who want Max to have an Aussie accent in #MadMaxGame : It shall be so. We admire your loyalty. You have been heard.”
Mad Max was unveiled during E3 and will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360 in 2014.
