Sunset Overdrive Overview (Synopsis and Features)

Gamers can run up walls, vault over obstacles, and grind along rails and zip lines as they blast hordes of hideous creatures in Sunset Overdrive. The FizzCo corporation’s OverCharge Delirium XT energy drink unfortunately turns anyone who consumes it into a disgusting mutant, and before players can escape they must search the open world looking for survivors, and use comical and deadly weapons to dispatch a variety of monsters, members of rival factions, and FizzCo’s rogue bots. Gamers can also join up to seven online friends and battle waves of mutants in the co-op Chaos Squad mode.

The first Xbox-exclusive developed by Insomniac Games, Sunset Overdrive features some of the humor and gadgetry of the studio’s popular Ratchet & Clank series, with weapons that launch bowling balls (The Dude) or teddy bears strapped with dynamite (TNTeddy), and enemy factions that include urban samurai and live-action role players. Weapons can get even more outrageous as players unlock modifiers known as Amps, which can produce nuclear explosions, cause tornadoes, and even summon the grim reaper, and gamers can also set equally humorous and destructive Traps to help dispatch mutant hordes.
