Sunset Overdrive Character Customization Lets You Be Emo, Goth, Metal, And Everything In-Between

Accessorize with Kangaroo Codpieces, Bunny Ears, and more.


A new video from developer Insomniac Games shows off the customization options in its upcoming Xbox One-exclusive Sunset Overdrive.

Though trailers and images from the game including its cover have highlighted the same punkish, mohawked character, you’ll actually be able to stylize your own avatar with a deep character creator.

As you can see in the video above, Sunset Overdrive borrows looks from several types of street fashion: mod, punk, goth, emo, and others. You can pick from complete outfits that are meant to go together, or pick and choose specific items from each and combine them however you like. And then there are some items are just nonsensical, like a physics-based, kangaroo-shaped codpiece, luchador masks, and bunny ears, to name just a few.

“Diversity was very important to me,” Insomniac Games Art Director Jacinda Chew explains in the video. “Because it is all about player choice and being who you want to be. I think it makes our game stand apart from other games.”

Sunset Overdrive launches this fall exclusively for Xbox One. For more on the game, be sure to read GameSpot's previous coverage.
