Phil Spencer confirmed today that Sunset Overdrive will be a Third Person Shooter and not a FPS.
well.. i like third person shooter more than FPS.. so this is fine with me.
Depends on the game, but TPS offer a lot more gameplay variety than a FPS does IMO, so I think is great news.
yep, a game like this should be 3rd person. I kind of figured it would be anyhow.
if i were you i would be more than sceptical after the disaster FUSE was as a TPS. wait & see
Abzine thanks for that info! Im not worried about Sunset Overdrive because of one bad game! Im pretty sure they want to make a great game for XB1 owners!
Yeah well it wasn't hard to guess, look at the trailer, its got that Crackdown-wild-over the top super power-vibe (I'm begging for a great *local co-op game). We knew it wasn't a platformer, definitely not an rpg so I mean what else was it going to be?; I didn't think it would be a fps from the start.
@Abzdine Are you serious or desperate? ONE mediocre game and you called it a disaster??? Following your logic, what should we expect from a next TPS game from SCE Japan Studio after Knack? Yeah, happens that i just know your answer.
This looks phenomenal. It takes the great idea of high-rise jumping and makes it work a hell of a lot better than inFamous. Sucker Punch must be gutted that somebody is able to deliver their idea better than they could hope to. XBone is killing it with exclusives.
LMAO! Oh wait, you're serious?
hey...look, a xbot talking about exclusive and how Insomniac is awesome now! how cute... I wonder what the hell happen to "multiplats are better than exclusives any day of the week" and "Insomniac is just an average/mediocre dev" thing.
You are basing this on a 75 second CGI trailer with no gameplay or even a screenshot since it was announced. That trailer would be concept like when Overstrike changed to Fuse since it has been so long with nothing.
Lol so we making idiotic blind statements! My turn! My turn! This game looks like a Gotham City Impostors. On side note, I loved GCI.
The only thing you know for certain about this game is that the weapons will be amazing. That's all Insomniac does. The rest of your statement is pure trolling so I have to ask, why? inFamous isn't really a shooter and these games are nothing alike. Perhaps you should look at the Order and compare those?
lol I find that completely funny because I remember Insomniac was constantly being bashed by Xbox fanboys for Resistance and Ratchet and Clank last gen. Now they're being praised because they're making an exclusive for the Xbox One? What kinda shit is that... lol "Oh, let's pit them against Sucker Punch even though they're close friends and worked with each other! Also their games are completely different. =p" And I wouldn't base anything on a CGI trailer, you need to see gameplay and it's mechanics. I still have respect for the developers, no flip flopping here so I hope they create something fresh and not another FUSE.
Why the Insomniac hate? I get that some PlayStation fans might be upset they did a Judas and switch sides to Microsoft but Sunset Overdrive looks epic. A console is defined by its exclusives and this could be the Xbone's very own Gears of War and no amount of The Order: 1886 steampunk gimmicks is going to stop this avalanche of quality graphics and gameplay.
Glad to see someone called it... the Insomniac/Sony relationship. I loved their previous games, good luck to them anyhow with this IP. Hopefully it won't turn out like crap though...can anyone say "FUSE"? The Overstrike tone would have been mint! Looks like they kinda went that route here.
The Order vs. Sunset Overdrive comparison links that just popped up everywhere on N4G after reading this.
I love seeing my character move and interact with the world... Especially a new gen game... What's the point of having shinny new graphics if you can't even see your main character animations? (nothing wrong with a good FPS also)
shooters is all you can expect from MS.
What are uncharted, last of us, kilkzone, the order and infamous? They are pretty much all shooters. Except infamous is with powers. Same idea.
and then there are god of war, LBP, white knight chronicles and countless others.
Ok then. Lets hit it!
never heard of the game,what genre of shooter (i.e..military / horror / sci-fi)?
From what I've read, it's an open shared world game with crazy weapons, have a look at the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
is it just me, or is the "art style" of this game off putting? Normally i love third person shooters.
Don't worry, it's just you!
Lmao. Thanks for that comeback. Made my day and my day just started. Anyways, I love the "art style". It's a game that isn't trying to take itself too serious. Silly cartoony weapons deserve silly cartoony art work. Can't wait to play it.
Lol to each his own then :)
wasn't that obvious though?
Yes, I thought so lol.
Great. love the art style and i expect to see alot of awesome weapon types in this game(classic insomniac style). Im sure there will be online co-op too and im curious to find out what insomniac meant when they said the game would Feature an ever changing world.
ok THIS IS WHAT I WOULD HEAR ...thnx god isnt an fps :D
they are a good dev I'm sure the game will be good
Wait. No. Seriously? Isn't this the "not-Titanfall" game every xbox owner falls back on when an argument breaks out over which system has the better games? ...Another shooter? Thank jebus more Gears is on the way, to break up the monotony. I'm just gonna say what everybody else is thinking... Shooter-Box 2.0, or One I guess. Whatever.
Dude, if having a lot of shooters on one console offends you, buy the PS4 if you haven't already. Those of us with the X1 expect shooters. It's what built the XBL experience, it's what we expect. That's why we chuckle when we hear "Xbox is not for hardcore gamers". I own a PS4 too but it aint for the shooters, it's for the exclusive adventure games like Uncharted, TLOU and Infamous.
Why does that make you chuckle? Is it your contention that shooters are the "most hardcore" of the genres?
Nah, it is my contention that running around as "sock boy " is enough proof that I'm hardcore. Cause everybody knows that you have to be hardcore to admit that. *still chuckling*
Actually your the only fanboy thinking it. You dont have to like the xbx one,just like you didnt have to comment on this either. The bottom line is that people are looking forward to it so what do you care? and by your logic every game that has some emphasis on shooting is automatically a shooter,right? So that would make rachet and clank, uc,tlou,alan wake,quantum break,the order third person shooters too. Hmmm. @majormahem Thanks for your comment. He is free to get another console no one is forcing an xbx one down his throat. @dragonknight It beats me, why some of you guys keep following xbx one articles so much, yet you hate the console so much but yet keep making the effort to drop comments in xbox articles like the one below . "DragonKnight + 7m ago Good thing I don't own an Xbox One. "Yay, another shooter" would be my response if I did." Is it for the attention? I guess we will never know but its just very weird.
What's funny is that I didn't even put down the Xbox One, yet your delicate Xbox fan feelings can't handle anyone saying anything that you perceive to be a slight against the Xbox so even when one doesn't exist you have to start the water works about how the Xbox One is being bullied. What part of "is it your contention that shooters are the most hardcore genre" and "yay another shooter" is saying "XBOX ONE SUX?" The mind of an Xbox fanboy must be filled with abstract versions of shooter box art.
Uncharted is an action-adventure third person platform game. The Order 1886 is too. Both consoles have TPS games. As long as the games don't all start feeling samey, I don't see what the problem is. Sunset Overdive looks nothing like Gears of War.
Lets just hope this is like classic old school insomniac and not the new 'Fuse' insomniac. If its the new insomniac I don't think anyone will worry about the game.
Insomniac really stepped up their game with the latest Ratchet & Clank, so fingers crossed this game is just as good.
I thought this is a multiplat... Looks good either way...
Of course it's not a FPS. The trailer clearly suggested that it's an 'urban comic-ish character'-driven game. In the style of Jet Set Radio in my opinion although some will feel Team Fortress (for the enemy design) or Mirrors Edge (for the parkour) too, plus monsters. I strongly hope that, potentially having the pressure of being bundled with a white XboxOne, that they don't tone down its glorious Jet Set Radio style looks. Nothing wrong with having some spooky, scary levels but don't mess with the fun quirkiness of the bright colour levels. And have plenty of platforming. DON'T make it multiplayer only for the love of all that is holy. The single player should be very substantial. The main character - who exactly nobody appears to have spoken about - appears to work for a restaurant / fast food place. Maybe a pizza deliverer who has to save the city with the help of his hip friends. A pizza slicer might even be a weapon.
Nice...kinda like a urban comic Armed and Dangerous! Im pretty sure this game is gonna be cool. It basically gonna be Xbox One R&C!! Cant wait!
Looks nice but still another shooter!
I always assumed this being from insomniac and just associated this with ratchet and clank. Not saying they couldn't make a fps, but third person is where they are skilled so it makes sense.
I will never buy any insomniac games again. U fcking Judas. U went multiplatform and I was ok with it, I thought more people Will enjoy your games but this I will never forgive.that felt like stab in the back for me, Me, one of your most ardent playstation fan who bought all the spyros on ps1, ratchets on ps2,ps3,psp,vita Resistance on ps3,psp, psvita and overstrike on ps3. Mr PRICE, I hope M$ paid u well cause you re never gonna see a penny from me again.
They don't need to see you're penny. Thousands will still buy. So I laugh at how you're change is effective on them?
You're acting as if they killed your parents in front of you. Chill out.
Is it just me, or did we already assume that it was 3rd person?
just today i tried a game that i think is very very VERY SIMILAR to waht will be sunset overdrive....u can play it for free...on steam is called Loadout check it and try it ..coz guys..is really FUN! here the trailer http://youtu.be/hFF5Zedit4Y
Looks like that epic game that never came out. It Looks like they've been playing Uncharted lab maps on line which is a good thing learn from the best.
I reserve all judgement for this game until I see this game in motion.
