Sunset Overdrive Revealed In Edge Magazine - New Details

Insomniac's Xbox One exclusive game Sunset Overdrive made a big debut in this month's issue of Edge magazine, with a ton of new features detailed and discussed.

"Sunset Overdrive recalls the blue skies and punk rock of Crazy Taxi, the speed and style of Jet Set Radio, the grindable city of Tony Hawk's Project 8 and the firepower of any Insomniac shooter," say Edge, who later add: "[It] feels like a Dreamcast game dragged 14 years into the future."

Reading their bumper ten page preview, here are some new details revealed.

This game is sounding so different from other games out there. I really cannot wait to see gameplay.

Gameplay will be the determining factor.

"your power is traversal – every wall can be run on, every ledge mantled; every car and awning is a springboard, every rail and wire can be grinded indefinitely while firing on the armies of OD'd zombies."

This game sounds like it's going to be a blast. I'm glad there are some devs willing to make fun the number one priority. Open world + acrobatics/parkour + monster slaying, with a colourful/vibrant/cartoony aesthetic? Sounds great, can't wait to see some gameplay.

Loving that Edge cover art also, they look like some sort of orange Tango monsters, lol.

That's Insomniac baby! Aside from Fuse anyway, I still don't know what they were thinking about changing the original Overstrike game to that garbage.

Insomniac always makes games out of the ordinary and I have really high hopes for this game. I just wish it was coming to at least 360 or PC and not just XBO, cuz I really don't want one and I already have a 360 and capable PC.

Same as. really love Insomniac games but I will not be buying xbox one console. So I will just have borrow my mates one if he buys the game.

Thats just the way it goes buddy. I love exclusives, because it forces people to become true gamers, and open up their minds to different products. People are forced to decide "will I be a fan of GAMING or a COMPANY that makes video games".

On topic: Sunset Overdrive is sounding like a great game for the xb1, I really like what they are doing with the game, and I cannot wait to see some gameplay.

"People are forced to decide "will I be a fan of GAMING or a COMPANY that makes video games". "

Or you know, I just don't want to shell out 500 dollars right now for this one game when it could easily be made on PC or 360 and still give MS profit... I swear some people speak out of their asses sometimes.

i have good feelings about this.

WeAreLegion1356d ago

Good lord, that sounds fun. *sigh* I'm going to buy an Xbox One, aren't I?

MasterCornholio1356d ago

Maybe I'll get one as well but there needs to be a major price drop first. 500$ is way to much to play one game.

P.S This is the only Xbox One game that I'm interested in but thats mainly because I'm a huge fan of insomniac.

WeAreLegion1356d ago

I'm interested in this and Quantum Break. Remedy is such a great developer. I just can't miss out on something this much fun, especially from Insomniac.

"Sunset Overdrive is a third person action shooter"
