From the creators of Ratchet & Clank and Resistance.

Microsoft and Insomniac Games are teaming up for Sunset Overdrive, a new Xbox One-exclusive “always-changing, open-world shooter set in the not so distant future.”

After a catastrophic event leaves your city overrun by mutants, it’s the player’s job to destroy them with an arsenal of “explosive, overpowered weapons” and the ability to traverse the city with “hyperagility.”

Insomniac boss Ted Price described the title as a “living world game” that you “could only do on Xbox One.” He described how every day could bring new challenges, new weapons, and various other elements thanks to the power of cloud computing.

A release date was not announced.

Watch the debut trailer below. View some artwork at the gallery.

  • Potionzmaster

    They didn’t call it an “exclusive”, right..?

    • DarthNemesis

      Well I assumed it was as leaked by neogaf.

    • Sal Romano

      It’s published by Microsoft.

      • Potionzmaster

        I see. Bummer :

  • Zackasaur

    Insomniac already died inside. :/

  • bldudas

    Ever since Insomniac left Sony they have been going downhill.

  • DarthNemesis

    Fuck them since they said the wanted to be multiplat but yet they are doing an exclusive xbox game.

  • xMCXx

    Naughty Dog and Sucker Punch are doing well, but Insomniac can apparently only do shooters now and not even that very well…

  • hush404

    :/ I use to like Insomniac.

  • DarthBrian

    LOL @ Ted Price saying this game is only possible on Xbox One.

    dem moneyhats.

  • CosmicNova

    Insomniac, Insomniac I don’t know what to say, but if this is how you define being a multiplat game development studio you really need help.

  • Anime10121

    Looks interesting Mirrors Edge + Insomnia Guns, but dont care much for the lead design.

  • King-Prodigy-X

    You Back Stabbers. LOL!!! But no seriously this game looks interesting can’t wait to see the gameplay.

  • kuusou yume

    this game looks great!

    • $18114340

      You mean, this pre-rendered cutscene

  • Claude

    The “gameplay” looked fun but the character design is ugly as sin.

    • Sal Romano

      I don’t think they said it was gameplay.

      • Claude

        That’s why I put it in quotes. If the game plays anything like what was in the CG trailer then it could be fun.

  • MrRobbyM

    The character design as ugly as hell. Someone needs to be fired.

  • Elvick

    Ewwww. One of the worst art style’s I’ve seen. And definitely the worst going into the next generation.

  • Irp4n

    whoa, Insomniac, xbox exclusive O_o

    Honestly, I don’t care if they’re making this game xbox one exclusive…
    as long as they keep making ratchet & clank games for sony :D

    ACiT was awesome, and I hope they will announce a new R&C game on sony’s conference, with ACiT’s style

  • Peacenutman

    Crackdown with Brink art style? At least MS let them keep its colorful art style, unlike EA with FUSE.

    And really Insomniac? With MS? I think they are better off staying with Sony.

  • artemisthemp

    Did Insomniac say: Xbox exclusive or is that just presumed, because it was shown ad Microsoft E3?
