fall's freshest Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive finally launched today, both on its own and bundled with a unique white console. All across the world, new and established Xbox One owners are now fending off the Awesomepocalypse and engaging in multiplayer "Chaos Squad" games. It's a fairly awesome time to be an Xbox gamer.
In celebration of the Sunset Overdrive launch, Windows Central is hosting a special Twitch streaming event. Tonight you can both tune in to watch us play and chat with our staff and your fellow readers, and you can also actually play with us during the session! We'll be inviting stream viewers into our Sunset Overdrive multiplayer game for some serious wall running, grinding, and more extreme antics. The event starts at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific), so get ready to join us!
Update: The stream ended and a couple of viewers walked away with super surprise prizes!
Sunset Overdrive multiplayer Twitch session details
Once the event starts, we'll be playing with you guys and streaming Sunset Overdrive for at least one hour, maybe a bit longer.
To watch or play along with us, just follow our general channel Twitch.tv/WindowsCentral and then join us in the Twitch chat during the stream!You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream in order to receive a multiplayer invite. And obviously, you must own Sunset Overdrive if you want to play with the staff.
Tune in for your chance to play with the following Windows Central staffers:
Due to unforeseen technical issues, I won't be able to play during the session but I'll be right there chatting along with everyone.
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
Lots more streams this week!
If you enjoy our Sunset Overdrive multiplayer stream, I hope you'll join us for the rest of this week's streams! These will come from my personal account, Twitch.tv/EastXTwitch. Go ahead and follow it so you'll be ready.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, October 29 we'll be playing one campaign mission each from Halo 1 and 2 on the Master Chief Collection. The next day, Thursday, October 30th we'll follow up with one campaign mission apiece from Halo 3 and 4.
Tune in at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific) to see how great the games look on Xbox One, how bad I am at first-person shooters in my old age, and to experience the comradery of Twitch chatting with your fellow Windows Central readers.
You can also win some sweet prizes during our Halo streams! Each day we'll give out three codes for Xbox Live credit and one 3-month Xbox Live Gold membership.
Don't forget, every Saturday at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific) we stream a different ID@Xbox game and give away a bunch of copies of that game.
This Saturday we're streaming classic adventure game/platformer Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition. We'll be giving away Xbox One, Playstation 4, and WiiU codes, so don't miss it!
