A first look at Sunset Overdrive's gameplay
For starters, Sunset Overdrive takes place in Sunset City in the year 2027. The city is overrun by mutants following the release of a new energy drink, OverCharge Delirium XT, by the greedy corporation Fizzco.
The video also confirms there's a big emphasis on traversing through Sunset City. You'll build velocity to jump on cars, grind powerlines, and run along walls to get a tactical advantage on enemies. The omnipotent voice also introduces us to a few factions you'll encounter in the city, including a group of adventures who abide by ancient samurai culture and another that consists of Live Action Role-Players. Lastly, the video also gives us a brief look at some of the unique enemies, powerful weapons, and unique Amps (special abilities) you'll see in Sunset Overdrive when it releases exclusively for Xbox One in fall 2014.
