We've known for a couple of days, Edge magazine will have a feature on the upcoming Xbox One exclusive, Sunset Overdrive. Below are the covers for the magazine, print and digital versions. This was one of the teasers that made me giddy for the Xbox One. Not much is known about it but that looks to be changing soon. Hopefully there will be a ton of screens and pics coming out when the magazine drops.

I surely hope this brings a lot of new information. It's hard to be too excited about a game I know next to nothing about.

Like i said in the Xbox One thread....it has been a while since this developer made something truly great. I am curious...but not yet excited.

I loved the look of the game during the reveal and what they were using for weapons. It just looked like it will be a really fun crazy game

One of the devs I spoke with at last year's E3 said the game plays just like what the trailer's cinematic shows.

I forgot about Sunset Overdrive and then i watched E3 again. We haven't seen much of anything but i can tell the game is going to be fun. Insomniac is such an underrated developer.

Ratchet & Clank got me into console gaming, so I have a lot of good feelings about Insomniac. I hope they turn out something amazing here. Fuse kind of fizzled, so it would be nice to see them bounce back with something really good.

That could out very interesting. I hope the game is awesome, cause it certainly is different and that is exactly what Xbox One could use...a somewhat more unique genre. :)

One of the better looking upcoming X1 exclusives.

This was one of my highlights from E3 last year and absolutely a highlight for the Xbox One. I can't wait. Unless it's garbage, of course.

I do not hold much hope for this title.

This is the only game I am not looking forward to on the Xbox One. It screams 1st generation shovelware.

I am personally interested as to if this is in any way related to Overstrike. I know Overstrike was retooled as mediocre Fuse, but the similarity in name makes me think there are some elements transported from that game to Sunset Overdrive.

Looked really fun anyways, so I am waiting.

WOW, if that's the case the game is going to be amazing!

Now, I'm not an Xbox One owner, nor going to get one. But I find that odd, as to me this seems like one of the titles that does seem interesting. It seems fresh, happy, out there.. and has that "Crazy Taxi" art style vibe to it.

Why would I want another Halo or Gears of War when I can have some brilliance like Sunset Overdrive?

I'd like to know how you figure its brilliance when we have seen nothing of it ? We have had a 1 minute of obviously not game-play footage video.

My comment is based on developer experience. Now, some might disagree, but to me, Insomniac is an average dev at best. Ratchet & Clank being their crown jewel.

One thing I noticed in their trailer is the headshot. Gives me hope a Bulletstorm-esque type of gameplay where stuff is heavily score based. Looking forward to it.

Well the entire art style apeals to me. It has a certain "SEGA of the Late 90's early noughties" feel to it. From the entire setup with orange soda in cans, the colour use, the over lighted scenery, the music, etc... it all just screams "DREAMCAST!" to me. So yes, I might be slightly biased (aren't we all) but the trailer for this one appeals to me far more than the CGI trailers for Halo really.

I heard rumors the sequel will be called The Twilight Massacre. Twice the fun, double the dark!
