Sunset Overdrive is more Jet Set Radio than I was expecting

Not another Fuse, that's for sure

Insomniac Games has properly revealed its Xbox One parkour zombie shooter Sunset Overdrive and, as much as I was into the original E3 2013 teaser for the game, the real thing looks considerably better. The studio captured that vision and didn't stop charging forward.

It may be the apocalypse again, but it's full of color, over-the-top weapons as you'd expect from Insomniac, and ridiculous traversal that immediately looks quick and fun. So long hiding behind cover, hello running (and grinding!) out in the open like an utter maniac. A number of outlets were invited to the studio for a hands-on showing, so take your pick and read up on the game.

Sunset Overdrive looks like a compelling reason to want an Xbox One, and we could always use more of those. I'm now sufficiently stoked for E3 next month. Bring on the current-gen-only titles!

If you're wanting to make a snap decision about whether or not Sunset Overdrive might be right for you and you've only got, oh, 15 seconds, get a load of these .gifs (via NeoGAF):
