Sunset Overdrive, the exclusive open world action game for the Xbox One, is due for release October 28 but as you might imagine some media outlets got copies of the game ahead of time so they could review it before it shows up on store shelves. As it turns out, developer Insomniac Games has put a special message in the game just for those pre-release reviewers.
This new effort to break the fourth wall comes in the form of Sunset TV, a weekly in-game show that's designed to give players updates on the game such as its weekly individual and community challenges. However, since the game isn't out yet, Sunset TV's host Brandon Winfrey decides to speak directly to the few reviewers who are playing Sunset Overdrive right now:
"If you're watching this, that means you're currently reviewing or streaming the game. Look I'm not trying to sway your review score either way, I mean your opinion is your opinion. But I advise you not to use the phrase 'Sunset Overhype' because that's just lazy writing!"
Hopefully that kind of meta-humor will be a big part of the game. We should learn more when Sunset Overdrive comes out in about a week and a half. If you own an Xbox One have you pre-ordered Sunset Overdrive?
