Sunset Overdrive is now available for PC gamers.
Disappointed no xbox x enhanced. Have been hearing good things about performance tho. May actually be able to do 4k 60 on my 1070
really? then i hope ur right about the 1070 thing.. excited!
I was reading impressions on performance and people were in the 100s at 1440p; guy was at 80 fps at 4k with a 1080. 1070 might be able to get around 60
Getting 120 fps at 1080p on my 1070
Was hoping for an X enhanced announcement to go along with the PC release. Would have loved to see 4K, 30FPS. Hopefully they can still make it happen.
That would have been good to see for Xbox gamers, but Microsoft wasn't really involved with this. They basically licensed the PC port to THQ Nordic, and THQ Nordic handled everything.
The details list Microsoft as the publisher on both Steam and the Microsoft Store. In fact, I don't see THQ anywhere...
Yes, it does list Microsoft. You're not wrong about that. But if you read up on it, the PC port was published by THQ Nordic. Microsoft previously announced a partnership where THQ Nordic would handle porting and publishing Xbox exclusives on PC, and Sunset Overdrive is the latest game in that partnership. I'm not really sure why THQ Nordic isn't listed on the Steam page though, that doesn't make sense.
Cool. Now just gotta wait for a sale. 5 bucks sounds good.
Steam version is ready to go. Thank you Insomniac
I still need to play this game another one to add to my ever growing list. Amazing having a family sucks to be a gamer haha.
i hope this IP is in the hand of insomniac now and they'll release it on ps4. i already played and enjoyed it on my xbox one s, but i want to platinum it if possible ahah
It always was. That was the reason they released on Xbox, so they can completely be free with it.
are you implying that with sony they could not have full freedom in developing the game? because that's bullshit.
Yeah, they wouldnt have ran back to sony if it was an issue of creative freedom
They might own the IP, but they may not be allowed to just publish the game anywhere they want. PC was probably approved by MS, and they're likely getting a cut. Considering MS paid for the game, that's pretty fair, and not atypical for them to allow another publisher to release the game. Hopefully it does well enough on Steam that some new publisher will take notice, and maybe they'll get funding to release a sequel. Game was pretty good, and its a shame that it didn't get all the success it deserved.
@Platformgamer hes not implying they wouldnt jave freedom more that sony wanted to own the IP if they funded development like Microsoft did. Sony turned sunset overdrive down because insomniac wanted to own the Ip. That's all
That would be interesting. This is one game on the system that looks uniquely better than the rest.
It's OFFICIAL. Xbox has NO exclusives.
Rare Replay, Halo 5: Guardians, Forza 5, some Japanese import and some downloadable titles are still true Xbox One exclusives, as far as I can remember.
Microsoft considers PC an 'Xbox family' member. So you could say, Xbox family has exclusives.
If they enhanced this, I'd likely play it again.
The worst thing about this is controls. Since this is a shooter, it would shine with a mouse and keyboard, but they tied it to controller's scheme, which is bollocks for aiming. Same as Monster Hunter: World, but that ain't a shooter. I don't know why companies do that...
Everyone should get this - great game.
