Sunset Overdrive Shown, Release date announced
Insomniac and Sunset Overdrive splashed their way into the Microsoft E3 2014 press conference big time, showing off lush, candy colored visuals, insane weapons, a tongue-and-cheek sense of humor the tongue and cheek humor that made us all fall in love with the Ratchet and Clank series.
Shown first in the form of a ridiculously fun trailer that spoofed first-person war shooters and delved a little more into the games premise, where an energy drink is turning the worlds inhabitants into mutants and creating the funnest vision of end of the world yet, the game is clearly setting itself up as one that shouldn’t be taken too seriously – And from insomniac, that’s just the sort of tone that’s going to make this one fun
The game was then Demoed, showing off a crazy looking sequence in an amusement park that ended in a fight with a very large mutant. the game play has a vibe that has shades of infamous or assassins creed, with lots of wall running and grinding, but also with a lots of wacky explosions and word bubbles that pop-up when your mutant adversaries go boom. Sunset overdrive was revealed to have 8-player Co-op at the show as well, and most importantly, it was was announced that the game has an October 28th release date. I can’t wait to see more of the Awesomepocalypse and what crazy hijinx it has to offer.
