Insomniac Games' upcoming Xbox One exclusive open-world game, Sunset Overdrive, will output in 900p at 30fps, studio president Ted Price confirmed Thursday. Speaking at EGX in London, Price outlined why he thinks that was the right move for the game.

"This is a game with a lot on the screen and we made the choice to be at 900 because we wanted to push the level of detail, action, the size of the city, and the views you can experience as move around," he told IGN. "What's great about Sunset Overdrive is if you can see it, you can go there."

Price added that Insomniac benefited from the Xbox One June SDK update, which gave the studio a "slight boost in CPU power" that it could take advantage of.

Also in the interview, Price confirmed that Sunset Overdrive is the "biggest game" Insomniac has ever made. It's not only just a big world, however, but it's also full of stuff to do. So much so that you may need to play it through a few times to find everything it has to offer. "You can continue playing after the end of the game and we don't imagine people will unlock everything the first time through," Price said.

Some of Insomniac's past games include Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus.

Finally, though Sunset Overdrive is not even out yet, Price said he's hopeful there could be more entries in the series released down the road. "Absolutely we want this to be a new franchise," he said.

Sunset Overdrive launches October 28 exclusively on Xbox One, though a PC version has not been ruled out. The game is published by Microsoft, and a special-edition $400 Xbox One bundle that includes the game and a white system will be available. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
