"Unique things" promised for multiplayer

"Worried that Insomniac's forthcoming open world Sunset Overdrive will be one of those persistent multiplayer dealios? That other players will continually intrude on your fun? Cease that worrying, right this very minute - according to Insomniac's Twitter, the game's campaign mode is single player only.

The Tweets in question are below. The developer has described Sunset Overdrive as a "classic Insomniac game" in that it has oodles and oodles of weapons. You can expect much more on the subject next week, when the first proper preview embargo elapses. Who knows, perhaps we'll have something to share?"

Tweets

there it is...embargo for previews lifting sometime next week. hopefully that means it releases somewhat soon.

    @JumPeRJumPzZ there is an online gameplay mode, as you saw in the E3 teaser. There is also a single-player campaign/story. More deets soon

    @SunsetOverdrive dumb question but is Sunset Overdrive still open world? Also, will I miss out on a lot of things if I just play solo?

Why is a game having a non-co-op campaign mode new? This isn't a FPS.

That's ok with me, I prefer SP games, although I wouldn't of minded co-op. Still an easy day 1 purchase for me.

Didn't your quote said it has MP as well? Your title doesn't match the quote.

I hope the MP is like the coop in the Resistance series, which if you ask anyone who played, thought it was great. I'm very much looking forward to more information on this game and a solid release date.

Fine with me

#18 Posted by donalbane (16362 posts) -

Despite the occasional trickle of news about this game, I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HELL IT IS! I'd really like some concrete data about this one. It may just be some crazy left-field type of game like Crazy Taxi or Power Stone, but I just don't know what it's all about.

#19 Edited by R4gn4r0k (16628 posts) -

Good to know. From what I gathered I thought this game was purely multiplayer and had no campaign

What has you excited for this game ?

I like insomniac, but from what I've seen I'm not really that excited about this.

Thanks for clearing that up, I always thought it was about driving over a sunset.

I love Insomniac games. This game looks to have a cool art style for a Zombie game. They say there will be tons of weapons and best of all it's an open world game, which is my favorite genre.

Yup and that's good news for me. I'm happy it has a SP campaign. Can't wait to see this game demoed at the E3. Hopefully we'll get some information before it's revealed.

An open-world zombie game with lots of crazy Insomniac weapons ? Ok, now that sounds way more interesting.

From the trailer I saw at E3 last year I thought it was just some generic multiplayer game with bright colors.

Sounds good to me.

insomniac deserve another flop for abandoning Sony!

#27 Edited by Speak_Low (1097 posts) -

Have they said anything about showing any gameplay next week? All we got to see was that cinematic trailer at E3 last year. It's about time for some gameplay footage at least

#28 Edited by DrRockso87 (2529 posts) -

Really hoping this game is great. It'll give me a reason to turn on my Xbox One again (haven't played it much in a while).

Fearful of this game being another Fuse but then again, Insomniac has the director(s) of Resistance 3 working on it so I'm excited!

#29 Posted by silversix_ (14790 posts) -

No big deal. The problem is the game itself. What the hell will it be like? If its chaotic monster exploding game like L4D then having no co-op will be laughable.

#30 Posted by UnbiasedPoster (875 posts) -

Wonder if they can make a decent game w/out Sony.

Somehow I doubt it.

Also, Resistance 3 was trash. Hopefully this is better.

my thread title is the title of the article i linked too...O_o

there's only 60 characters allowed in the title line...so i focused on the main subject of the thread, that Sunset Overdrive DOES have a single player campaign, as well as online multiplayer. that its not an online multiplayer game only. i just threw the multiplayer quote in as well because its just more news that was in the article...but it wasnt the article's/thread's main subject. n how didnt you know this game has multiplayer as well lol?

is it really too much to ask users to read the title and open the link as well lol? threads OPs are usually just a taste of what the actual article is saying. you'd save both of us some time by reading the link fully as well instead of just the title and my small excerpt in the OP then asking TCs to explain minor details you really only had to click a link to get the answer too.

that's great man...i've noticed that you're sincerely interested in this game. hope it lives up to ur expectations.

Only in today's gaming world would this be unusual and considered by many to be "unacceptable".

The more I hear about this game the more I am intrigued.

Pretty sure I read it about some city that has been quarantined after all the people drank some weird soda and started mutating. Yes it is a very silly plot, but I think that is on purpose.

@SolidGame_basic: Especially considering they didn't even finish the Resistance series. They left us with Hale turning into one of the hybrid things(it's been a long time since I played). Then they pulled that stupid prequel bull on us and now it seems like they will never finish the story.

They did finish Resistance, and there was no prequel or anything.

Fine with me. I find myself wanting to play multi-player games less and less now. A nice split screen co-op would have been nice though.
