Insomniac’s Sunset Overdrive has been one of the Xbox One’s most anticipated exclusives ever since it’s reveal at E3 2013. Today we have been given our first look at it’s gameplay, with a four minute gameplay trailer from Insomniac today. They even explain the game’s premise, with a massive corporation named Fizzco releasing a new energy drink that has caused a mutant outbreak. Are they connected? Naturally.
It’s an Insomniac game, so naturally the weapons look to be a standout. In the trailer we are shown a gun that fires records, the Roman Candle gun, and the TN-Teddy. This gun fires adorable little teddy bears at the enemy, oh and the bears are strapped with dynamite. On top of those weapons, you will have amps which activate additional powers when you utilize traversal as apart of your combat. Insomniac went as far as calling Sunset Overdrive “Tony Hawk with Guns” with just how important things like grinding and wallrunning are.
Sunset Overdrive will feature a Day One edition as well, like Ryse, Forza 5, and Dead Rising 3 before it. The Day One edition will reportedly feature “In-game exclusive items”, so it wouldn’t surprise me if we saw retailer exclusives as well. Look for Sunset Overdrive exclusively on Xbox One this Fall.
