Latest Sunset Overdrive video focuses on Sunset City’s playground

Posted on June 6, 2014 AT 05:01am

Insomniac has released a new video for its Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive that offers a look at the adult playground that is Sunset City.

Originally Sunset City was flat and boring, but during one of the developer’s Game Jams a designer created an urban environment with multiple levels, which eventually became the Sunset City you see today. Each level of the city is seen as a plyground, and if you fall off one of the higher levels, you simply end up in a lower one where you can continue having fun.

“We think of the street as a beginners level, so that’s just mostly grinds and bouncies and all that jazz, but the higher up you go the more you’re going to have to combo your traversal and utilize your wall run in order to get around,” Associate community manger Brandon Winfrey says in the video.

Sunset Overdrive is set to release later this year exclusively on Xbox One.
