A live action trailer for Sunset Overdrive?! Sure. Why not. Live action trailers are still cool, right?
So look, this trailer is good. Don’t get me wrong, the production values are high, the overall mood (one of suppressed insanity) and theme fit perfectly with how the game feels, and the general aesthetic is spot on. But man, this is not a fun thing to watch. It’s good, but not fun.
Now I know it’s meant to be goofy, its intentionally wacky, I get it. But I want everyone on that set to just stop what their doing and say, “hey, this is Sunset Overdrive” and then show me more of the game. Perhaps I’m just grumpy or perhaps the Irish just don’t like this sort of thing. I know my friends don’t!
But anyway. Sunset Overdrive is an absolutely awesome, lunatic open world action shooter that is being developed by the great folks over at Insomniac Games and it’s an Xbox One exclusive! Choke on that “The Order 1886”.
