Sunset Overdrive, Insomniac’s Xbox One title that has quickly become a cult classic, is coming to the PC.
While there’s been no shortage of rumors regarding Sunset Overdrive coming to the PC, Insomniac has finally released a launch trailer for the PC version of the game that confirms its existence. Still, we’re waiting to hear a few more details about this version of the game. While it appears that this is a fairly straight port of the title, it’s possible that the PC version will feature a few visual upgrades. It’s also possible that this version of the game will include all previously released Sunset Overdrive DLC, but that has not been confirmed at this time.
What has been confirmed is that Sunset Overdrive will be released for PC today, November 16th. We know the game will be available via the Microsoft Store, but there seems to be some debate regarding whether or not it will be launched on Steam. Keep an eye on both sites just in case.
We can also tell you that you may not have played Sunset Overdrive when it was released on the Xbox One, but you should absolutely take this opportunity to play it now.
Sunset Overdrive is a bizarre open-world action title that involves a very dangerous energy drink, some outlandish characters, and a plethora of over-the-top weapons. Mostly, though, it features a fascinating navigation system that sees players bounce around various structures and grind rails to get around the game’s fairly sizeable map. Indeed, Sunset Overdrive can be thought of as a kind of prototype for Insomniac’s recent Spider-Man game.
Comparisons aside, only Sunset Overdrive is Sunset Overdrive. It’s a fun and genuinely funny title that takes a little while to get going and sometimes struggles under the weight of its own ambition but absolutely deserves to be played by any fans of Insomniac or the genre. With any luck, this release will be a success and we’ll finally get that sequel.
