Insomniac Games' Ted Price got on stage today at Microsoft's E3 press conference to talk about their newest title Sunset Overdrive. Taking place in a "growing world" where new content such as new weapons can be added daily in a stylized, open-world game that's influenced by the players.

This is where Ted showed the reveal trailer (with no actual gameplay), which showed off a vivid world taken over by zombie-esque ghouls that have taken over the game's city. The first character ran speedily through the city, in what looked like Mirror's Edge gameplay turned up to 11. This character was met by two others, with one fighting back the monsters with a vinyl-shooting gun. This one's looking pretty interesting, so hopefully it doesn't end up like Fuse!

Alcohol-fueled benders are the quickest way to traverse Sunset Overdrive

Go, go, go. Always on the move. That's all that we've seen of Insomniac Games' Sunset Overdrive since its initial 2013 reveal. Seriously, think back. Do you remember seeing any footage of the game where the oddball prota...more

Soda scientist shows off Sunset Overdrive mutants and robots

There was a surprising amount of brand new stuff out of gamescom (thanks, Sony!), but let's not forget Sunset Overdrive is coming out October 28. It's pretty fun, though I've only messed with the multiplayer. more

White hot! Microsoft confirms Sunset Overdrive white Xbox One bundle

Microsoft's finally confirmed one of the worst-kept recent rumors in the videogame industry. Sunset Overdrive's getting a console bundle with that flashy white Xbox One. The bundle is expected to release right alongside Sunse...more

There are Hawaiian Shirts in Sunset Overdrive!

As we recently learned, Sunset Overdrive lets players protect their genitals with the head of a green kangaroo, which is a very silly idea. But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

You can wear a kangaroo codpiece in Sunset Overdrive

For San Diego Comic-Con, Insomniac Games is talking up character customization in Sunset Overdrive and the clothing options range from "traditional" to "out there" -- way, way out there. Interestingly, these vanity items don...more

Sunset Overdrive gets the Mondo poster treatment

Mondo has come out with some of the coolest movie posters in recent times. I've yet to get one, and not for lack of trying. Now, it seems videogames are on the table for the company -- I sense more pain from missed limited-ed...more

Sunset Overdrive's opening cinematic is a staunch reminder that energy drinks are bad

Hey local teens, think life is all about cool dance festivals and energy drinks? Wrong. It's not, and you better get on track or your existence will become one of two things. Best case scenario is you become The Original Par...more

Sunset Overdrive's Chaos Squad looks like more fun than just a horde mode

I hadn't really paid a ton of attention to Sunset Overdrive's multiplayer component. I figured it was just another co-operative experience where you hole up and fight off some baddies with your buddies. Rah rah, we've been h...more

In a show of unity, Sunset Overdrive lets you be a female assassin

I enjoyed messing with Sunset Overdrive's multiplayer mode at E3, partly because you could play as a beefy Middle Eastern man in a skirt or a tiny woman with bunny ears. Anyone other than Sunset's 'in your face' punk protago...more

I'm loving Sunset Overdrive's mutant killing arsenal

As much as I like Sunset Overdrive's mix of Jet Set and Ratchet and Clank, I'm less in love with the insufferable punk aesthetic its sleeveless jean jacket wearing lead puts forth. Just because you pin cloth to your jean jack...more

Fortified is a base defense shooter inspired by 1950s science fiction

Admittedly, Fortified looks rough around the edges at this pre-alpha stage, but I'm liking the concept of a third-person shooter centered around base defense in a 1950s sci-fi setting. You and up to three friends will throw ...more

Wear the carcass of Chester Cheetah in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

I was prepared to get mildly annoyed at this Cheetos partnership with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, despite the fact that it's not the first time the game has dabbled in brand-sponsored character variants. (There were ...more

Some Team Fortress 2 characters join the Super Time Force Ultra team

Well, looks like I'll be playing Super Time Force all over again when it hits Steam. Why? Well aside from the new challenge levels and alternate-dimension powers, there's three new playable characters. Two of which are from ...more
