Sunset Overdrive is still to this day one of Xbox’s best exclusives, and now even more people will be able to play this wonderfully silly third-person open-world adventure by Insomniac Games (yes, the creators of Spider-Man) as it is due to release on the PC. The news broke when the game was spotted on the ESRB rating board website in the United States.
There’s no official release date for the game yet, and we don’t know if the game will have any improvements or additions. It will most likely be exactly the same, but here’s to hoping.
Sunset Overdrive first launched in 2014 and was met with critical and commercial success, scoring 8’s across the board. It was, for a long time—and even to this day—considered one of Xbox’s best exclusives, but in all fairness that’s not exactly hard considering the lack of exclusive games on the console.
If you haven’t played or seen gameplay of Sunset Overdrive before, then it’s a third-person shooter set in a metropolis called Sunset City. The game will see you fight against all sorts of wacky monsters that have come to pass due to consuming too much ‘Overcharge’ (which is an energy drink). You slay these creatures by using some creative weaponry such as the FizzBot Rifle and the Hair Spray Bomb, all in an attempt to save the city from certain destruction. The game is littered with funny and somewhat daft voice lines and is a true blast to play.
There’s always been some speculation about Sunset overdrive coming to the PC; it’s always been nothing more than rumours, but now it seems it is going to happen, even though it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet by Insomniac Games.

As a side note, I can’t help but feel like this game would also make a great addition to the Nintendo Switch lineup and it should run pretty well thanks to the cartoony graphics. This is most likely never going to happen what with it being an Xbox exclusive, but I can always hope.
