Sunset Overdrive digital pre-orders get bonus

First Xbox One title confirmed for digital pre-order

Sunset Overdrive will be available for digital pre-order on Xbox One "soon", developer Insomniac Games has revealed.

In Thursday's installment of Sunset TV, a YouTube series that answers questions from fans, community manager Brandon Winfrey said digital pre-orders will receive the same in-game content as those who buy at retail.

"If you pre-order the game digitally, you will get the Day One Edition content, Winfrey said. "You can't pre-order it digitally yet, but soon you will be able to. Also, there will be a little 'nifty gifty' exclusive for digital buyers as well."

That makes Sunset Overdrive the first Xbox One title confirmed for digital pre-order.

The video also revealed another of Sunset Overdrive's "amps", power-ups that players can unlock and slot into their character as they level up; "Scorched Earth" causes lava to burst forth from the player's footfalls, giving chasing mutants a molten surprise.

In our hands-on Sunset Overdrive E3 preview, we said that while the game "feels very irreverent about its lineage, it also feels like more than the sum of its parts."

Insomniac has announced a Sunset Overdrive release date of October 28 in North America and October 31 in Europe.
