Sunset Overdrive Gets Its First Gameplay Trailer And Day One Edition

Earlier today, we shared with you a preview of Insomniac’s upcoming Xbox One shooter, Sunset Overdrive. You’ve also seen some screenshots and read an interview with company founder Ted Price. Now, see the game in action.

Sunset Overdrive takes place in 2027 in the middle of an energy drink-fueled mutant outbreak. You’ll meet characters from a number of different factions, like Troop Bushido and the Fargarths.

You’ll also get your hands on some typically far out Insomniac weapons like the Captain Ahab and the Roman Candle Gun. The video also includes some information on the amp system, which can drastically change the way you play.

Insomniac says this is the game they’ve been building up to for 20 years. With that in mind, they have announced a special Day One Edition (similar to the Dead Rising, Ryse, and Forza versions that launched with the Xbox One).

If you get the Day One edition, you’ll have access to the Nothing but Hits gun that shoots out vinyl records (as seen as the trailer). You’ll also get the It’s Me! Fizzie! outfit to dress up as the Overcharge mascot. Finally, the Hardcore Hammer, made of a bat and spiked dumbbells, will let you pound mutants into the ground.

Sunset Overdrive is coming this fall for Xbox One. We expect to have more from E3 in June.

  • As much as I love cover based shooting games, this does look a hell of a lot more fun than "cowering behind a crate." Give me a release date and I will happily sacrifice my wallet to get this.
  • This looks like so much fun. Like seriously. If I had a Xbox One, I would get this on day one for sure. Actually... games like this push me to get a Xbox One and that's awesome.
  • Looks like a fun rental

  • Sold.

  • I like things that are different. Definitely another reason to get an xbox one for me

  • the guy talking reminds me of those extreme videogame promoters who were always like "i'm trying to sell you something, but i am cool and can relate to you."
  • It's like Dead Rising but even way more betterer. This sounds like the kind of game that I must has.

  • This looks INSANE! Imagine playing multiplayer with a bunch of other people *O*

  • As a PS4 owner I might have to get an Xbox for this but the price for that thing is gonna have to go down soon I hope
  • A definite day one buy! Just have to wait till E3 to get a release date probably.

  • This looks to finally be a good title from Insomniac, after Fuse and Resistance 3 I was thinking they'd fade into oblivion..Good for them!

  • I am severely mad that this is an Xbone exclusive. Especially coming from Insomniac. Makes no sense.
  • Looks like a cult classic in the making, ala Jet Set Radio on the first xbox.
  • That is a really grating trailer, but the game looks like a ridiculous amount of fun.

  • Too bad its on a system I have no intention of getting. No game is worth what MS tried to do to us.
  • Looks better than I expected, actually.

  • I'd be more impressed if they weren't so excited about how innovative and clever they think they are. Let's see... take the character action and mobility from Crackdown, add in a lot of enemies like Dead Rising, and then to make sure it's actually an Insomniac game, COLORS! and also crazy weapons. Geez I could put that formula together in my sleep, since I've been dreaming someone would expand on insane 3rd person action ever since the original Crackdown. It looks like hella fun, but it's not like it's some kind of genre-busting trail blazer.
  • Why would they have a day one edition already announced when we know very little about the game itself?
  • Hmm... It looks really fun, I'm not going to lie, I would buy it. My issue is that it looks like it could get repetitive. Obviously it's early and we don't much yet but there doesn't look like there's a whole lot to the game based on what we've seen.
  • They got me on the "THIRD PERSON VIEW" part!!! I'm sold!! :D
