Watch This Appropriately Crazy Video Announcing Sunset Overdrive Going Gold

Development on Xbox One game finished ahead of its release on October 28.


Upcoming Xbox One title Sunset Overdrive has gone gold (meaning development on the game is finished) ahead of its release on October 28. The developer announced the news through a video that keeps with the game's theme of being completely over-the-top and crazy. We won't spoil it for you.

Sunset Overdrive is in development at Insomniac Games, which is perhaps best known for its Sony-exclusive franchises like Ratchet & Clank and Resistance. We recently caught up with Sunset Overdrive creative director Marcus Smith who explained to us why the game is "the opposite of The Last of Us."

Microsoft is publishing Sunset Overdrive on Xbox One. At launch, Microsoft will offer a $399 Xbox One bundle that includes a white system, matching white controller, and the game. This is particularly notable because it will mark the first time Microsoft releases the Xbox One in a color other than black.
