Sunset Overdrive now available on Windows 10's Microsoft Store

Over the past few weeks, there have been numerous listings of Sunset Overdrive for PC. It's been leaked by almost every ratings agency out there, including the Entertainment Software Rating Board. Luckily, you won't have to wait any longer because the game is now available on PC on Steam and the Microsoft Store.

Just like other Microsoft exclusives, THQ Nordic is bringing the title to PC. The publisher had to wait for the reveal to happen in order to announce the physical version of Sunset Overdrive. While you can purchase the digital version for $19.99 today, you'll have to wait a week to buy it from your favorite physical retailer.

The PC version of Sunset Overdrive includes the base game as well as bonus expansions. You won't have to spend any more to experience the entire package.

Sunset Overdrive was originally released in 2014 and garnered stellar reviews. Many outlets called it the best Xbox One game that year. The Sunset Overdrive description states, "the year is 2027 and Sunset City is under siege. A contaminated energy drink has transformed most of the population into toxic mutants. For many it's the end of the world, but for you it's a dream come true. Your old boss? Dead. Your boring job? Gone. You can transform the open-world into your tactical playground by grinding, vaulting, and wall-running across the city while using a devastating, unconventional arsenal."

  • But no one in their right mind will buy it there.
  • I was hoping it would be a Play Anywhere title, so I could get it through Xbox Game Pass. But no, they went full retard.
  • Brilliant game though. One of my top 5 games ever played. Seriously underloved considering how amazing it is.
  • They need to make it a play anywhere title.
  • Those system requirements are ridiculous considering how old this game is
  • GTX 750Ti is way older than the game itself.
  • It's a current gen title, system reqs are fine. The 4 GB VRAM min is a mistake probably.
  • No play anywhere? Is this a joke?
  • Yeah, it's a joke, these guys are absolutely crazy. It's an Xbox Game Pass title already, and it's available for PC now, the logical thing to do was to add it as a Play Anywhere title for PC. I can't believe they're so dumb.
    So if someone has it through Game Pass on Xbox and want to play it on PC they have to pay full price? Utter bollocks.
  • prob the same tech limitation Bridge Constructor Portal's having.
  • I can't believe it's not a Play Anywhere Title, it's already in Game Pass for the console. This is downright stupid. It's a FIRST PARTY TITLE, for crying out loud.
    So this is how Microsoft plays their "we're going to make Xbox Game Pass grow for PC users"? We're being laughed at. I'm not buying this stupid game. And if I do, I'll do it on Steam.
    Supporting Microsoft is setting yourself for one disappointment after the other.
  • Is it maybe an oversight? Or does it maybe require both versions to support the game synching of save files and they aren't going to update the XB1 version? My first thought was maybe I will actually finish it if I can play it on Game Pass and PC with XPA, but there's no way now.
  • Prob the same technical problem Bridge Constructor Portal's having. * Same SK will sync with each other, no need updates.
  • Sorry for the double post.
  • Unfortunately it doesn't support DX12. Surprisingly, you can buy it in Store on Windows 8 as well, lol.
  • Cause the game was build with the old build setup / tool... That is why no PlayAnywhere.
  • Is it cross platform?
