Sunset Overdrive Walkthrough


2027. Sunset City. A contaminated energy drink has transformed most of the population into toxic mutants. For many it’s the end of the world, but for you it’s a dream come true. Your old boss? Dead. Your boring job? Gone. Transform the openworld into your tactical playground by grinding, vaulting and wall-running across the city while using a devastating, unconventional arsenal. With hyper-agility, unique weapons, and customizable special abilities, Sunset Overdrive rewrites the rules of traditional shooters and delivers an explosive, irreverent, stylish, and totally unique adventure exclusively to Xbox One.

Welcome to your Awesomepocalypse.

Get ready for an explosive and irreverent adventure in Sunset City. It may be the end times, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had as you traverse this vibrant town, pushing your body to the limit as you go. Sure, there’s ruthless mutants and murderous corporate-types who want to kill you, but that’s what makes it so much fun, right?

The freaky people in your neighborhood.

Throughout Sunset City you’ll run across an eclectic group of factions, each with its own unique style and story. Hang with Troop Bushido, a group of adventurers who now abide by ancient Samurai code. Or get to know the Fargarths, live action role-players whose fantasy is now their reality.

So many ways to kill.

You’re definitely going to need firepower in Sunset City. Good thing you’ve got a full arsenal of deadly and unconventional weapons. Try out the Dude, a gun that fires bouncing bowling balls. Or Turret Copters, model helicopters that take crowd control to new heights. And the TNTeddy, an explosive fusion of teddy bears and dynamite.

Amp-tastic mayhem.

When you need a little boost for some all-powerful mass destruction, amps are your answer. Wanna ignite a nuclear explosion? Slap on the Twist of Fate. Or use Tornado Spin to whip up a twister with your melee attacks. Over 50 Amps are at your disposal, giving you the power to fling lightning bolts and summon the Grim Reaper himself.

The best enemies you could ever have.

Sunset City is packed with hellaciously bad dudes out to eviscerate you. Meet the Herker, a hulking mutant who’s fond of hurling smaller mutants at you. He’s also got a pretty nasty jab when up close. Then there’s the Blower, another nasty mutant sporting an arm fused with a leaf blower that spews acidic goo at you. Yum!

Key Game Features:

  • An Open World with No Rules: Leap off buildings, run along walls, and grind power lines and rails to destroy your foes from every angle.
