Report – Sunset Overdrive Will Feature 8-Player Co-Op Action

It appears that Insomniac Games’ upcoming over-the-top, open-world action shooter Sunset Overdrive will offer a dose of co-op action for yourself and 7 other friends.

According to Sunset Overdrive’s official page on Xbox, the title will feature 8 player co-op multiplayer. The mention of it has been pulled as of this writing, however, indicating that it was likely an announcement being saved for its showing at E3 2014.

Lucky for you guys, we managed to screenshot the mention:

If you’ve got your eyes on this Xbox One-exclusive shooter, then definitely stay tuned for Microsoft’s E3 press conference at 9:30am PST on June 9. You can watch the debut gameplay trailer here.

Sunset Overdrive is set to launch Fall season.

  • dieger

    least its different

    • MrMultiPlatform

      No, it’s not. It’s just a cartoonish version of resistance 2 coop.

      • dieger

        Resistance 2 was third person and had parkour?

        • Joel Santana

          This.

      • ThisGuy

        Which makes it different.

  • Alex Melendez

    Wow, sounds fun ass hell. But the resolution and framerate?

    • JayZero

      don’t worry about resolution, frame rate with surely be locked at a silky smooth 60 FPS to get the movement of the game looking and running its best

    • Jonah Thrillz

      It’s XBone. Did you expect 1080P?

      No it’ll likely be 720 or 900P @ 30 or 60fps.

      • RustyFrags

        News flash: Forza is 1080p completely disproving that “can’t do 1080p” theory.

        • dieger

          at 30 fps :D

          • latch360

            Did they say PS4 was 60frames?

            • dieger

              no and i never mentioned PS4 >_>

            • latch360

              But everyone know what you’re implying.

            • GodGamerDerp

              Any game running on Xbox One can be run on PS4 with better framerate/visuals/resolution.

          • BSNismo

            Forza 5 runs 1080p @ 60 fps and rock solid, not sure where you get 30 fps from.

            • Jonah Thrillz

              Yes Forza 5 is 1080P but at the expense of cutting corners. Missing detailed backgrounds and weather patterns.
              A LOT of compromises had to be made. So much so that even fans noticed Forza 4 was a more complete game despite being last gen.

              Even the developers agreed that’s why they dialed back to 30fps for Forza Horizon 2.

            • RustyFrags

              Forza Horizon 2 is open world, Forza 5 is limited to tracks. 60FPS on open world games requires a beefy rig.

            • Jonah Thrillz

              I guess that’s why DriveClub will be the bigger racing game coming out this year. No wonder it’s 30fps.

              As for Forza 5, it was a disappointment for most fans.

            • RustyFrags

              Forza 5 being a disappointment is irrelevant.

          • RustyFrags

            Forza Horizon 2 is 30FPS, Forza 5 is 1080p/60FPS.

        • GodGamerDerp

          It’s obviously meant “1080p with Sunset Overdrive’s level of visuals.” Since Forza 5 had to make serious visual sacrifices to hit 1080p. Taking things literally all the time is a sign of, you already know.

      • DanDustEmOff

        There is very little difference between X1 and PS4 in terms of hardware. The PS4 has a more modern low level API which I suspect is why the PS4 can run games at a higher resolution and frame rate DX12 will give the X1 a substantial performance boost AW is set to run at 900p @ 60fps on the X1. Thats on DX11 it’s not outside the realm of possible for the X1 to close the gap.

        • Jonah Thrillz

          Experts have already concluded DX12 will only benefit PC platforms not console.

          • DanDustEmOff

            The X box is short for Direct X box. As long as the hardware can support it (which it can) then DX12 will show a performance boost. Please link me to these experts you speak of.

            • Jonah Thrillz

              Right here:
              http://gamingbolt.com/directx-12-might-not-have-a-big-effect-on-xbox-one-mostly-targeted-for-pc-flying-wild-hog

              Problem here is you XBone fans hold on far to much to hype in stead of facing reality. If majority of developers tell you the XBone is at a disadvantage, don’t just ignore them! Micro$oft cut corners on the box. Those are FACTS. Just get a PS4 and teach M$ a lesson and hope they get the next Xbox right.

            • DanDustEmOff

              I’m not a fan of either console. Both have cut corners and cheaped out on components at time when 1080p is becoming old hat.

              Thanks for the link but 1 dev that has not seen or used DX12 can not be counted as an expert. No one accept people at MS truly know what DX12 will do for the X1 if anything at all. But I do concede that I may be wrong on this.

              BTW the article states that the X1 and PS4 are virtually the same.

            • Jonah Thrillz

              1080P becoming “old hat”? You looking for what? 4K? Why not 8K? You have a TV for that resolution?

              4K gaming is not going to be mainstream for a few good years. Right now there’s not a convenient way to provide 4K content so it’s pointless to even talk about it. Enjoy what you have right now. Oh and do enjoy 1080P gaming on the PS4 cause you will hardly see it on the weak XBone.

            • DanDustEmOff

              Yes 1080p is old hat. I’ve been playing games at 1080p for a few years. There are resolutions between 4k and 1080p. I have a 1440p G Sync monitor on pre order and two shiney new 4gb GTX 770′s to run it with.

              This whole console war is like watching a midget and a dwarf argue over who is tallest to me. Both systems are crap and I would only get one if there was a must have game I couldn’t get for the PC. Even my kids don’t want a console all they want is for me to build them a PC.

              You need to get over your sense of superiority that you seem to have aquired with your PS4. You look down on other console users whilst us PC gamers laugh at you both squabbling over virtually the same machine. See how much you love your PS4 when it gets overtaken by a tablet or smart phone. There are even laptops out that stomp all over the PS4.

            • GodGamerDerp

              LOL here we go.

              “ju-just get a PC!!1″ keep hiding behind PCs while everyone ignores you and keeps buying PS4s. 8+ to 4.5 million and growing.

            • Jonah Thrillz

              Yeah you definitely have more money than brains.
              Very few people will go through the trouble of SLI’ing two video cards. Add in the fact that gaming on PC isn’t as popular as console gaming.

              Knowing this you’ve just put yourself into a niche group and spending over $2k for a setup on a PC platform that sees less games released compared to consoles.

              One thing is for certain. Publishers know the REAL money is in consoles. That’s why AAA titles get developed first on consoles and PC is regarded as an afterthought. I’m not even counting the titles that don’t even get released on PC.
              You’re second tier. Enjoy it while you can.

            • DanDustEmOff

              You obviously know nothing about PC gaming. The highest grossing game of all time is a PC game. Many PC gamers use sli and crossfire configs. PC is the largest gaming market on the planet and brings in more money than all the console makers and their developers every year.

              You’re either ignorant or stupid very few games are developed on condoles these days. BF4 and CoD Ghosts were developed using a PC this year and without those 2 games consoles would be completely irrelevant. Even the sales from GTA titles only come around every 6 or so years.

              Steam has the largest catalogue of games available period. If I were you I would get out of that cave you live in, every once in a while.

            • Jonah Thrillz

              You truly think I’m in idiot don’t you? The highest grossing game now on PC isn’t even being sold. Free 2 Play games are exactly that. Free. The games earn their revenue through microtransactions and DLC purchases. Totally different from traditional retail units sold. This is why PS4 has several F2P games with more coming out in the horizon.

              When you do compare retail copies of games sold, consoles out sell PC in software. I can see I got you wound up and when you lost the argument you resorted to insults.

              Thanks for letting me know I got the better of you.

            • DanDustEmOff

              Lol you would like to think that you have got me wound up you mean. I never resorted to insults, I stated you were either ignorant or stupid. If you take offence to being called ignorant then I would think before you speak about something you know nothing about. You started being insulting in your previous response. So by your logic I wound you up first and at that point I won.

              I don’t think you’re an idiot, obviously thats not the case. I do think that you are closed minded and in this debate for the wrong reasons. If you’re here to argue just to win you have already lost. You have neither been persuasive or reasonable and your whole argument is one sided and clearly emotionally driven. You fail to recognise anything negative about the PS4 even when you’re presented with it and you fail to provide good rebuttal’s to any points made.

              Obviously you’re just in this to get the last word no matter how flawed your argument is. Please feel free to have the last word I’m done with this matter.

            • Jonah Thrillz

              If I was emotional I wouldn’t be coherent. I’m stating the FACTS about the PS4′s better performance. I don’t need to get emotional or twist the facts to suit my interests. It’s so easy to say the PS4 is the better system since the games speaks for itself.

              It’s just hilarious and silly for XBone supporters to say otherwise. That’s why I love engaging clowns like you. You keep running around in circles with no clear argument.

              Yes I’ll take the last word and slam the proverbial door on your face!

            • Ballistic Shield LMFAO

              My pc was 450$ and it barely plays seek and find games. Your logic is flawed and dated. Quit spewing false proganda.

            • DanDustEmOff

              PC is the largest market on the planet. Uncharted 4 rivals nothing a high end rig can do. Your 1.6 8 core that handles system and graphics simply doesn’t come close to my 8 threads running at 4.2 GHZ and thats just the CPU alone. Lastly of course your shop bought $450 pc is shit…

            • KiLLaMaNiLLa

              I don’t expect consoles to achieve 4K for a lone time PC’s can do it now but at a hefty price for the monitor alone and a high end build to get decent frame rate. Even getting decent frame rates at
              2560 x 1600 takes a high end build. So getting a console to provide that resolution won’t be anytime soon.

            • GodGamerDerp

              Only 3-4 PS4 games aren’t capable of 1080p native. Many more Xbox One games are sub-1080p.

              Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more, +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support, better performing CPU, and faster unified memory. PS4 OS may also have less overhead or reserves.

            • Grif

              DX12 still won’t give the Xbox an advantage over the PS4. Hardware is better than software man.

            • DanDustEmOff

              The hardware is virtually the same. I would suggest you read a bit about how an API works. The hardware needs good software, otherwise the game engine can not use the hardware effectively. They go hand in hand, they need to evolve together otherwise one will hold the other back.

            • ps4 obliteratesxbox1

              Dude you need to do your research 1st b4 posting crap. They are not virtually the same, not even close. They share the same amd design on 8 core jag. But in terms of memory gddr5 in ps4 is 50%+ faster. The gpu has approx 50% more rendering power, 2 x the Rops and much more texturing and shader units As Well As MORE comput units.
              Rofl the same my ass fanboy.
              While good api soft is essential 2 maximise hardware potential the ps4 leads and always will due to the substantial hardware benefits.
              Of course I want both 2 succeed as I own both but stop peddling this same bs as everyone knows it’s not true.

            • DanDustEmOff

              If you’re gonna tell me to do some research please do your own first. GDDR 5 is slower than 3 not faster. It has a higher bandwidth but 3 has lower latency.

              Fanboy lol. Look at your name mate. I don’t own or intend to own either system, both are crap from where I am sitting. To you there is a gulf in class to me and nearly every dev that has spoken about them, they are pretty much the same. The PS4 is marginally better but you’re foolish if you buy the media hype, believing that the PS4 is lightyears better.

        • Ballistic Shield LMFAO

          Sorry to say but the PS4 is much more powerful then the XB1. The ICE team working for sony is supposed to announce significant performance boosts for the PS4 they have found as well. The gap will only get bigger from here on out.

          • DanDustEmOff

            It’s not though both have a 1.6 GHZ 8 core CPU SoC from AMD, both have 8gb of ram. They are more alike than they are different. The X1 just has an older API, a more complex architeture and lower band width ram. The PS4 will always be slightly more powerful because of the type of ram that was selected. But you’re being ignorant if you think the PS4 is much more powerful, it simply isn’t.

            • Ballistic Shield LMFAO

              Actually the XB1 has a faster clock speed at 1.76. There is many things inside the PS4 that Makes it leaps and bounds more powerful. Google is your friend.

              Right now the PS4 is making XB1 look Pretty sad on Multiplatform games and exclusives graphics quality. What do you think will happen in the coming years when developers get even more fimiliar with the PS4.

              Using power the Kinect stole will be irrelevant. Every tech site on the internet has the PS4 topping XB1 Pretty sadly on raw graphics power. I am not being ingnorant I am stating facts something you should adopt.

            • DanDustEmOff

              Why use actually like im wrong. The CPU/GPU is still a 1.6 processor, it’s just been overclocked to run at a higher frequency. I would love to know what these things are inside the PS4 that make it leaps and bounds above the X1 please enlighten me.

              Like I said the PS4 already has a low level api the X1 doesn’t DX12 should close the gap. Every non PS tied tech site I have seen says they are virtually the same with the PS4 edging it slightly.

              Both the PS4 and the X1 are gonna be stuck at 1080p 60fps at best. No amount of tinkering will change that. It’s a shame because even 1 year in and even before launch both are outdated and lacking in raw power.

              AW is set to run 900p 60fps on the X1 so indeed the gap is closing before even the Kinect patch and DX12 has even happened. I guess only time will prove who is right though. Also looking forward to E3 and thats where we agree. All platforms have a ton of goodies to look forward to. Unless you count the Wii U as a thing.

            • GodGamerDerp

              No software is going to let Xbox One close a gap with PS4′s stronger hardware. This is common sense.

              CoD Advanced Warfare runs 800-900p scaling resolution on Xbox One going by the reveal trailer.

              Both Sony and MS have world class coders that will extract every bit of performance out of their consoles with their drivers/APIs/SDKs. The difference is PS4 simply has more powerful hardware to work with, so it will always stay ahead in graphics performance.

              Every console or gaming device has a power budget that can be put towards resolution, framerate, or visual effects. PS4 has a higher total budget than Xbox, and good PCs have an even higher budget. If they’re both running at the same resolution the Xbox version will have lower framerate and/or visual effects, or the PS4 hardware isn’t being pushed.

              Forza 5 would run better on PS4, and Driveclub would run worse on Xbox. Quantum Break would run better on PS4, and The Order would run worse on Xbox.

              PS4 will have better performing games for the entire generation as it has more powerful hardware, you can’t overcome a hardware gap with better drivers/SDKs. Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.

            • GodGamerDerp

              Uhh PS4′s GPU is significantly more powerful both in CUs and GPGPU.

              Only 3-4 PS4 games aren’t capable of 1080p native. Many more Xbox One games are sub-1080p.

              Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more, +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support, better performing CPU, and faster unified memory. PS4 OS may also have less overhead or reserves.

        • GodGamerDerp

          It seems most people are ignoring attempts to downplay PS4′s stronger hardware and buying PS4s anyway.

          No Xbox will never close the gap. PS4′s hardware is more powerful in pretty much every way.

          Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more, +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support, better performing CPU, and faster unified memory. PS4 OS may also have less overhead or reserves.

          • DanDustEmOff

            GDDR 5 is not faster than GDDR 3, the opposite is true. DDR 3 has less latency but a lower bandwidth, GDDR 5 has higher latency but higher bandwidth. Each has advantages and disadvantages especially when used as unified memory.

            I wouldn’t trust those Journalist break downs if I were you. They all disagree over certain things and they all get something wrong. Lots of devs have gone on record to say that they are virtually the same machine. Clearly you are so in love with your PS4 and not open to reason and logic on this subject so I won’t bother replying to you again on this subject.

        If it was available it would’ve been mentioned. Common sense.

  • tanile

    This game and Quantum Break are making me start to want an xbox one. I own a PS4 right now, and I swore I would never buy both consoles. However, if Sunset Overdrive comes in a bundle with a decent price, I may have to pick one up. I would also need to see some more amazing exclusives before doing this though because I’m not going to spend upwards of $500 for one or two games. E3 is tomorrow!!!!

    • latch360

      You should get one. Don’t believe what you read about the kinect being useless the voice controls are worth the price alone. Very useful for many situations

      • Samson

        You don’t need a overpriced, glorified webcam for voice controls.

        Headset mic is all you need for voice control on PS4.

        • TriPpKinGs

          Honestly, the kinect is worth it, but not in a gaming sense. It really has spoiled my girlfriend and I from having to get up and look for the controller when watching tv/ netflix. “Xbox pause” is a beatuiful thing. As a gaming peripheral, it’s useless.

      • KiLLaMaNiLLa

        Exactly i’m honestly glad i got a kinect with my X1 and like he said very useful especially if you ever want to twitch stream with buying any hardware.

    • jj16802

      You might want to wait for the Kinect-less model. It will be cheaper and is rumored to have a bit more processing power.

      • DanDustEmOff

        10 percent with the overhead for the Kinect disabled. It’s gotta be enabled by the developer though.

        • TriPpKinGs

          What he said. It’s got nothing to do with unplugging the kinect.

          • DanDustEmOff

            The Kinect ties up 10% of the X1 graphics power. By dropping the Kinect the X1 sees a 10% performance with a software update so long as the developer doesn’t use the Kinect and utilises the extra power.
