Sunset Overdrive teaser website hints at in-game locations and characters

Posted on May 5, 2014 AT 02:06pm

A new teaser website for Sunset Overdrive’s fictional, xtremophiles-fueled OverCharge Delirium XT soft drink hints at locations and characters that’ll appear in Insomniac Games’ upcoming Xbox One exclusive.

The faux website, built for a product no doubt at the heart of the orange-blooded mutant monsters featured in the E3 2013 teaser trailer for the game, makes mention of a Sunset City launch party for Fizzco’s newest product: OverCharge Delirium XT. Shot in the dark, but something goes quite wrong during this launch party, resulting in the mutant-populated catastrophe players will find themselves amidst in Sunset Overdrive.

Characters listed on the website include Fizzco executive Chet Fischer, the last-living blacksmith Wendy Tarth, Troop Master Bryllcream, “Sunset City’s favorite hobo” Red Caboose Reggie, Sunset’s Mayor Arnold Renner, and hunting show host Buck National.

The OverCharge website also contains details on several Sunset City locales and attractions, including the “SexBurger” food chain, the Japanese Heritage Museum, and the WonderTown Land amusement park.

Dates for Fizzco mascot Fizzie’s scheduled tour correspond with this year’s E3 (the day of the press conferences, specifically), San Diego Comic-Con, Gamescom, and PAX Prime, so expect a proper reveal of Insomniac’s open-world, agility driven third-person during Microsoft’s E3 2014 presser on June 9.
