Sunset Overdrive

Sunset Overdrive description

 

 

Los Angeles, CA - Composer Boris Salchow continues his long-standing musical collaboration with independent video game developer Insomniac Games to score the cinematic music for their highly-anticipated next-generation shooter, "Sunset Overdrive," published by Microsoft Studios. Reflecting the game's over-the-top sense of humor and frenetic gameplay style, Boris Salchow's eclectic cinematic score ranges from electro-industrial, alt-rock, spikey punk and headbangin' metal cues to '60s Hollywood orchestral music, zombie horror, spaghetti western and even minstrel ballads!

Filled to the brim with Insomniac Games' trademark humor and satire, "Sunset Overdrive" is a rebellious game that explodes the rules and flips modern conventions of post-apocalyptic shooter video games on their head.

About Game

2027. Sunset City.Sunset Overdrive is a madcap open world metropolis where you have to battle humans who have transformed into monsters after consuming energy drinks.While the majority perish or transform, you flourish. It turns out your calling isn't picking up trash or serving food, it's mutant destruction.

The madcap tone of the game is set early on -- the world has been taken over by roaming bands of monstrous humans who have been poisoned by drinking contaminated energy drinks. You're the average Joe that has to blast through the gunk and save the world.

Sunset Overdrive features

  • Features

    Weapons

    You’re only as good as the company you keep, so good thing you keep a fully-stocked arsenal of deadly and unconventional weapons. The apocalypse has inspired you to cook-up new ways to deal with Sunset City’s mutants and other unsavory characters. For instance, there’s “The Dude,” a gun that fires bouncing bowling balls. Or “Turret Copters,” model helicopters strapped with guns for airborne crowd control. And the “TNTeddy,” a weapon that fuses teddy bears and sticks of dynamite. And that’s just a taste.

    Amps

    Amps are special abilities you can equip to customize your character. Want to ignite a nuclear explosion? Slap on the “Twist of Fate.” Or use “Tornado Spin” to whip-up a twister with your melee attacks. With over fifty Amps and a vast number of possible combinations, Amps are how Sunset Overdrive lets you be you or at least a version of you that flings lightning and can summon the Grim Reaper.

    Enemies

    All the rest of that stuff above is useless if you don’t have something to shoot! Well, never fear. Sunset City is filled with vile mutants, bots, and knaves. Not only will you be taking down various mutants such as Herkers and Blowers, but also FizzCo’s own high-tech army of bots. Oh, and there are going to be other survivors who are going to try and take what’s yours. Your trigger finger isn’t apt to let that happen.

    Chaos Squad

    Join with up to 7 other players (8 total) to take on the challenges of Sunset City. The harder the challenge - the greater the reward. It all caps off with a bang during Night Defense. Join Chaos Squad at any time from the single-player and ALL your sweet rewards can be carried over between modes seamlessly.
