Where there is smoke, there is fire, and there was a lot of smoke here…
We’ve been receiving rumors and leaks about it for a while now, but it’s officially been confirmed. The fan favorite action adventure game Sunset Overdrive, which launched exclusively on Xbox One in 2014, will be launching on PCs, specifically Windows 10 PCs—and it launches tomorrow, so you get to play it in just a few hours.
The game was developed by Insomniac Games, who you probably know better as the folks behind the Ratchet and Clank series, or, more recently, the folks who made the fantastic Spider-Man game for PS4. In fact, a lot of the agile mobility that would go on to be lauded in Spider-Man originally traces back to Sunset Overdrive.
Of course, given that the game is specified as coming to Windows 10 PCs, it will probably be exclusive to Microsoft’s Windows Store, at least for now. Yes, I know that’s a bummer for folks who swear by Steam, but Microsoft is the publisher, so it makes sense. Meanwhile, if you’re interested in the PC port, Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb announced on Twitter that tomorrow’s This Week on Xbox will see Insomniac’s Ted Price talk about the port. So maybe tune into that.
