Sunset Overdrive

Microsoft has lifted the embargo on pre-E3 previews for Sunset Overdrive, Insomniac Games’ open-world shooter for Xbox One.

We’ve already shared initial details from Edge this morning, but there’s now previews up at CVG, Eurogamer, Game Informer, GameSpot, IGN, Joystiq, Kotaku, Polygon, VG247, and Xbox Wire.

View the first screenshots at the gallery.

    Holy shit.

    • Sal Romano

      I know. Looks super sexy.

  • $61526767

    Damn, Looking nice.

  • Aaron Lee

    I’m not super fond of incessant zombies (or zombie-like entities), but hooooooly damn, that looks sweet. More eye-catching things like this with colour and attitude and Microsoft might actually get my money.

  • HighBrowDrifter

    Oh dear…..This is simply marvelous….I am lost for words.
    Even though I am telling myself that I would never get an Xbox One after the fiasco at last year’s E3….Sunset Overdrive is a colorful sight to behold. From what I am seeing, it is overflowing with an abundance of awe-striking, quirky, happy-go- lucky elements….


  • MrRobbyM

    One count for games I’m interested in that are exclusive to the One!

  • DarthBrian

    Video doesn’t work. :(

    • bloodiOS

      • Sal Romano

        Replacing the footage with this.

        Perhaps Game Informer wasn’t supposed to post the footage?

        • bloodiOS

          I guess so, the whole page is gone now (before I could see it.)

      • DarthBrian

        Thanks! ^_^

        So, I’m willing to suspend disbelief in a videogame, but is there something on the player’s shoes the let them not only grind rails but *up* them as well? Seems to defy the laws of physics. :p

      • LordKaiser

        I can’t stand his voice!

  • DarthBrian

    They really shouldn’t release screenshots of a 900p game in 1440p, there’s jaggies everywhere.

    • Ih4t3th3w0rld

      They taken it straight full screen from their PC monitor maybe ?

      It’s like inFAMOUS and American Wasteland had a baby. My brother is going to flip out.

  • Elvick

    Looks a lot better than I was expecting it to. Still not getting an Xbone though.

    But it gives me hope for future Insomniac games to be better than the laughable Fuse.

  • Wolf Star

    This looks really good. Still I’m not buying x1 because of 1 game. I can’t wait for more info at E3 :) maybe?

    • DarthBrian

      I now have 2 games I want on Xbone: Sunset Overdrive and Killer Instinct. Not buying an x1 because of 2 games though. :p

      • Wolf Star

        I heard killer instinct sucked. People are still complaining about it. If I got an X1 I would’ve gotten Sunset overdrive day 1. It looks sweet :) better than last year they showed us.

        • DarthBrian

          I don’t care if it sucks or not, I want it. :p

          • Wolf Star

            Ok :3 have fun ^__^

  • Northstar

    Like infamous, with Bioshock infinite’ Sky-Line ;)

  • Sol badass

    HORI SHEET. This looks sick as F word. There is just so much color and jumping and grinding and shooting and explosions. I was eventually gonna get an X1, but now Im getting it by the time this is out

  • Six

    I really hope the rumor about there being a bundle with this and a white Xbone ends up being true.

  • Deusxmachina

    “We suggest muting while watching”
    That’s so rasict lol jk

  • Raziel Kõbe

    This rails remember me Ratchet and Clank

  • Ih4t3th3w0rld

    Very interesting game

  • Budgiecat

    Microsoft’s answer to Infamous only with guns, zombies and more stylish color..

    • McPoo

      Surely Infamous was Sony’s answer to Crackdown?

      Anyway, this reminds me more of the PS2 game Total Overdose than anything.

  • Al Buns

    Looks better than fuse but thats pretty much everything.Does not look like anything infamous or R&C has not already delivered.Openess or color does not make a game great.What about, characters, features, story and game design? It just looks generic.

  • Lights

    Really loving the art style for the game. It kinda makes me want an Xbone.

  • tokyobassist

    This looks AWEEEEEEESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Too bad it’s on a system I absolutely don’t care about. At least there is an incentive because it’s exclusive though. I also respect seeing such a huge scale game be so colorful. This could have easily been another grim dark, brown and grey game.

  • 罪罰

    Man, I wish this was on ps4.

  • DarthBrian

    First Look video via Xbox channel.

  • DrForbidden

    This does actually look interesting.

    Has a sort of R&C + Infamous feel…
