In the series, Mackie plays the role of a “smart-ass milkman” who has no memory of his past. He’ll have to survive traveling across a post-apocalyptic wasteland to deliver a mysterious package in hopes of finding a community of his own.
The Twisted Metal series first came out in 1995 as one of the earliest titles for the original PlayStation. Players would choose one of several characters who drove different vehicles decked out with deadly weapons to take down other combatants. The last game in the series came out in 2012 for the PlayStation 3.
