Sunset Overdrive, the Xbox One exclusive from Microsoft and Insomniac Games, is now available at retailers across the US for $40. The permanent price drop went into effect today, Microsoft announced.

The game launched in late October. Insomniac Games, of course, is perhaps best known for its PlayStation-exclusive franchises such as Ratchet & Clank and Resistance.

In other Sunset Overdrive news, Insomniac Games has released the game's latest DLC, called "Dawn of the Rise of the Fallen Machines." The add-on is included with the game's season pass or can be purchased separately for $10. It comes with new weapons, traps, amps, enemies, and outfits.

On top of that, Dawn of the Rise of the Fallen Machines includes a "new giant Energy Ball that only you--the hero--can control," Microsoft says. Check out a trailer for the expansion above.

Finally, to celebrate April Fools' Day, Insomniac Games has released a new Xbox One achievement for Sunset Overdrive. Unlock the "Worst Job in the Kingdom" by replaying and completing the "Floating Garbage" mission in under 15 minutes to earn the achievement.

The "Worst Job in the Kingdom" achievement brings Sunset Overdrive's total gamerscore point total to 1,925, which is almost double the number included with the base game, Insomniac Games notes.
