Play Sunset Overdrive Tonight in LA

Unless you managed to win your way in, E3 is closed to the general public. That’s why Insomniac Games is taking the Sunset Overdrive E3 show floor experience outside of the LA Convention Center for tonight only! Join us at the Century City Microsoft store to be among the first gamers to go hands on with this upcoming Xbox One exclusive’s newly revealed Chaos Squad. Attendees will also have the chance to meet the Insomniacs that make Sunset Overdrive as well as Xbox Live’s Major Nelson.

As with any Xbox event, we’ll be raffling off Xbox One consoles and other fun giveaways in the store, including cans of ice cold Overcharge Delirium XT! (Yes, seriously)

Sunset Overdrive for Xbox One

What: Sunset Overdrive Event at Century City Microsoft Store hosted by Major Nelson

Where: Microsoft retail store at Century City10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90067

When: Wednesday, June 11th – 6 to 9pm (this means TONIGHT)

Bonus: Pre-order Sunset Overdrive at the Microsoft Store Century City Event and get a limited edition poster you can get the Insomniac devs to sign! Plus, get a $10 Microsoft Store gift card, 2 exclusive melee weapons and secure your copy of the Day One Edition, which includes a bonus gun, outfit and the Hardcore Hammer.

Oh, and because we know the only thing worse than a town full of violent, Overcharge-powered mutants is LA traffic, we’re setting up a ride on the baddest bus ever to hit Santa Monica Boulevard.

The Sunset Overdrive bus will make a visit to the West Hollywood Gamestop location (7100 Santa Monica Blvd #115, West Hollywood, CA 90046) today from 4-5pm, then roll over to the Century City event (return drop-offs at 730pm and 9pm). It only seats 40 people, so you’ll want to be at Gamestop early enough to grab a spot.

More details on the Facebook event page here. Any questions? Ask away in the comments.

See you tonight!

E3, Events By Jeff Rubenstein

  • ImTheMetalLord

    Wow I wish I was there to get my hands on that game and play early. Would be super cool.

    • Digiadam

      It does look like a lot of fun!

  • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

    I play my fair share of serious military/shooter games. This game looks like a pretty cool departure from that. It may be nice to change it up a bit, I’ll keep my eye on this one.

    • Some guy

      Just go grab Vanquish or painkiller while you wait. (Or Crackdown for a slower game)

  • WickedSheep

    come on give us some playable demos of Sunset Overdrive and Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox Live

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      that would be too awesome and one up the competition. who do you think they are Sony?

      • Digiadam

        Of course not….this is Xbox……WAY better than Sony.

        • ElektroDragon

          Ahahahahahaaha. I wish. Else my X1 wouldn’t be just an exclusives machine this gen.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Oh and you are the all knowing all telling all correct all alone person?

            GIVE me a break.

          • Mike P.

            It’s over, MS is doomed. Elektro is playing multiplat games on his PS4.

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      YEA what he said!

  • deadbox102

    I feel like they’ve managed to stick Sonic in a shooter.

    • Some guy

      That would be Shadow the hedgehog, hopefully it will be better then that game(even if I liked it somehow)

      • roozbeh, again

        Yeah, maybe an actual aiming system could have made me like that game more.

  • Mr&Mrs Ninja

    FINALLY HERE!!! Already preordered this but i’ll just get MKx in it’s place. I really want that poster signed by the devs!

  • Digiadam

    A bus……they made a trailer of a frigging bus……..

    • itsjustme

      The monster is a hood ornament!
      Birds in the fridge!
      Wheels with infinite edges!

  • ilovegoogleglass

    Phil Harrison says “Xbox One Developers Can Completely Shut Off Kinect Functions”, is that now true? This is coming from an interview with him and Gameinfomer. I hope this is false, cause this would make many Kinect features useless during gameplay…

    • ElektroDragon

      GOOD. Damn thing thinks I’m talking to it most of the time when I’m not. Had to turn it off in settings.

      • Mike P.

        How often do you just say “Xbox” when you’re playing games..?

        • ElektroDragon

          Well that’s great for you guys, but it frequently thinks someone in the house said Xbox when NO ONE ACTUALLY DID. Maybe you folks have your X1’s tucked away in a bedroom or something and not your living rooms? Maybe you live alone? I don’t know, but if I leave my X1 on all day, it will think I’ve said Xbox when I haven’t at least one or twice a day.

      • Nick Peck

        I have never had an issue like that ever, you must say Xbox a lot? :p

        I have no issues with the Kinect, it hear’s me fine and I almost never have to repeat myself. I really only use it for voice commands anyways which I love being able to do.

        I could care less about motion games though, never interested me on any system.

    • Death Dealer

      It’s only the skeletal tracking that used to be continuous and used the GPU. The audio interface still runs in the background on the specialized cores and the entire interface still consumes about 2% GPU cycle time. There is no functionality being gimped (which I was afraid of too), just the permanent reservation being dropped. The permanent GPU reservation was there so that if there were new Kinect features added in the future, they would have some space to work with, that is now no longer the case, but Kinect won’t be implemented in that many games and the games that do will still be able to use everything Kinect related if they want to at the cost of GPU time. The UI functionality and user experience will remain the same.

  • ElektroDragon

    This game looks really good. Will be the next big Xbox One game I buy. Shame so few big exclusives are coming this year.

  • Death Dealer

    I’ll be buying this when it comes out. Looks great!

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    this game looks like a stoners dream come true.

  • John Smith

    Looks nice – can’t wait for the demo.

  • Paul Josephson

    Wait, they are giving away ice cold Overcharge Delirium XT. Isn’t that the drink that turns everybody into zombified mutants in the game? That’s not cool Insomniac. Why do you want to turn your fans into killer mutants? :)

    • John Smith

      I can’t imagine how this decision got past Legal.

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      Mr Ninja: Glad I didn’t drink any!

  • Mr&Mrs Ninja

    The bus was awesome and we got some stuff signed. Finally met the Major to!!!
