Sunset Overdrive Spices Up the Awesomepocalypse With Player Voting, Weapons Pack, Soundtrack Release and More

Do you like totally awesome games? How about totally awesome add-ons? Well get ready as Sunset Overdrive is about to unleash a slew of new weapons, new gameplay mechanics and an even newer soundtrack!

  • Even More Insane Weapons!
    • Sunset Overdrive has a lot of weapons, but anyone who’s encountered a horde of OD will agree that there’s no such thing as too many weapons in a mutant apocalypse. With the first Sunset Overdrive downloadable Weapons Pack, you can beef up your arsenal with four new weapons and obtain more strategic options for creative mayhem and destruction.
      The weapons pack is free with the Sunset Overdrive Season Pass, or available for separate purchase for $6.65 (AUD).
  •  Vote Now or Die Hard (then Respawn)
    • Sunset Overdrive is packed with tons of outfits and explosive weapons, but Insomniac wants you to help decide some of the exciting content updates and changes on a regular basis. Every other week, you’ll be able to vote on new outfits and game-changes through a new online Player Voting feature that will help shape the community’s experience.
  •  Get Lost in the Music
    • If you want to inject a little more Sunset Overdrive into your life but don’t think it’s physically possible to zipline on power cables, bounce off the top of cars and rail grind along the edges of buildings – then the Best of Sunset Overdrive Music soundtrack is for you! Releasing today on iTunes, Spotify and other digital distribution platforms, the soundtrack features 18 awesome tracks by such bands as Boats!, Dan Sartain, Bass Drum of Death, Meat Market, Cheap Time, and Brenna Red.

So that’s a tonne more awesomeness coming to Overdrive fans very soon! Make sure you check out our review of the game and see what we thought.
