Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive Day One edition, impressive graphics, and first gameplay revealed
While the absurdity may have started for some upon seeing Ratchet and Clank developer – Isomniac Games – behind the wheel of an Xbox One exclusive, the team’s forthcoming shooter just got wackier, as Sunset Overdrive recently had its Day One Edition detailed in addition to some impressive graphical feats and a new trailer.
Purchasing Sunset Overdrive on its yet to be announced release date will grant players access to a slew of goodies, making it “the ultimate package for fans who want to get through the end of days with flair.” That flair will come in the form a vinyl-shooting gun that inflicts increased damage; an outfit of FizzCo mascot, Fizze; and the Hardcore! Hammer melee weapon. Microsoft also noted the aforementioned will be “exclusive digital content that you won’t find anywhere else.”
Something you will find, though, will be Sunset Overdrive’s impressive visuals. Taking advantage of the Xbox One’s power, character artist Gavin Goulden revealed in addition to realistic cloth movement that will wrinkle when moving, each one of the game’s characters plays host to 40,000 polygons. Despite being significantly lower than other titles of its generation, the amount of action happening in this open world third-person shooter makes it a great achievement for the console and team.
You can check out Sunset Overdrive’s graphics for yourself in the title’s first ever gameplay trailer, which goes into more detail on the game's story, weapons, enemies and more since its original announcement at last year’s E3.
