Microsoft announced Insomniac’s latest title (and possibly franchise) at E3 this afternoon. From the creators of such beloved characters as Spyro the Dragon and Ratchet & Clank, Sunset Overdrive is a stylized, open-world shooter with evolving weapons and challenges, updated daily using the cloud. It almost looks like a hybrid between Mirror’s Edge style free-running and a Team Fortress 2 aesthetic.
The trailer showed a man parkouring through a brightly-colored, zombie-infested city. Like Team Fortress 2, this game is sure to be infused with a charming wit, evidenced by silly weapons (guns that fire vinyl records, etc.) and a cartoon-y feel. Sunset Overdrive is a new Microsoft IP that will be exclusive to the Xbox One.
