‘Sunset Overdrive’ puts you into overdrive to eliminate zombie mutants

In “Sunset Overdrive,” you might be tempted to grab a drink with friends in the fictional world of Sunset City, but beware: As home to the world’s largest beverage producer, Fizzco, it’s also the epicenter of the apocalypse. The disaster begins when a bad batch of the company’s energy drink infects those attending a party to celebrate the drink’s launch. It turns them into zombie mutants, which leaves you with two jobs: killing zombies, and having fun doing it.

The game, due out for Xbox One later this year, features lots of zombies who swarm you en masse while you attempt to escape using your exceptional sleight of foot, writes Xbox Wire. “Your ultimate goal is to topple the Fizzco empire – but along the way, you’ll be offered a great number of side missions and other diversions by everyone from comic book collectors to fortune tellers.”
