Video preview: Sunset Overdrive

Insomniac's self-aware action game is packed with character

Microsoft recently showcased first gameplay footage of Insomniac's long-awaited Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive as part of its E3 conference.

Offering more colourful environments and a more knowing sense of humour than most other third-person shooters, Sunset Overdrive promises a more light-hearted take on the genre with an emphasis on mirth over militia.

CVG's Gav Murphy and Official Xbox Magazine's Jon Hicks have both had some hands-on time with the game in LA. Check out the video preview below to get their thoughts on Sunset Overdrive and see if it's shaping up to be a useful addition to the Xbox One's library.
