Fed up with having to explain to users whether they’re watching in-game footage or something else, it seems more and more video game developers are turning to live action trailers as a way to sell their games. Take this new Sunset Overdrive trailer, in it all hell breaks loose and you don’t see the actual game once.
There’s not much that can be said about this new live-action Sunset Overdrive trailer. It’s stuffed full of inside jokes, sarcastic remarks, weapon wielding and sexual innuendo. In fact, we’d suggest you watch it alone or with headphones in case you have children that are at that tender age when asking questions is a favorite pastime.
Sunset Overdrive is a sort of shooter on rails that’s being produced by developer Insomniac Games. When it launches on October 28th it’ll be exclusive to the Xbox One. In addition to digital and disc versions of the game, a white Xbox One will come bundled with a copy of Sunset Overdrive.
