Welcome to the awesomepocalypse with the Sunset Overdrive: Behind the Scenes video
Out of all the games coming out for the Xbox One this year, Sunset Overdrive is setting itself up to be the open world multiplayer game Xbox One gamers have been waiting for. With that in mind yesterday saw Xbox UK release the Sunset Overdrive: Behind the Scenes video on Youtube. The video is PEGI 16 by the way.
So the plot of Sunset Overdrive is that a new energy drink has caused the awesomepocalypse (is that a word?). On the plus side this means that the city is now you and your friends playground. In order to make you fill like your the hero, your character will be completely customisable with plenty of ridiculous outfits to choose from.
What makes Sunset Overdrive stand out though is that nearly everything in Sunset Overdrive can be either grind on or parkoured on in some way. This gives you an insane amount of mobility and should make exploring the city a blast. Afterall an open world game that’s a chore to explore is doing something wrong.
This is an awesomepocalyse though so you’ll need some awesome weapons to blow stuff up with. Each weapon is designed to be unique and fun so expect to blow things up with teddy bears tied to dynamite and shoot vinyl records at people for example. Even better is that you can continue to fire your weapons while grinding and parkouring around so the action doesn’t have to stop.
While Sunset Overdrive will be perfectly playable by yourself, everything’s better with friends right so Sunset Overdrive will support up to eight player co-op so you and your friends can wreck hell together.
Sunset Overdrive will be an Xbox One exclusive and will be released October 28th in North America and October 31st in Europe.
