The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

InFamous: Second Son to Sunset Overdrive Comparison “Flattering,” Says Insomniac

Posted on Thursday, August 7 @ 05:25:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


InFamous: Second Son
,the PlayStation 4 exclusive from Sucker Punch Productions that launched earlier this year, is quite similar toInsomniac Games'Sunset Overdrive, which is also an open-world actionplatformer, only exclusive for Xbox One instead.

​GameRevolution asked Insomniac what the studio thought of the inescapable comparisons between the two, and the notion thatSunset Overdriveis essentially anInFamous: Second Sonequivalent for Xbox gamers.

Believe it or not, the game's director, Drew Murray, confessed that the studio is actually quite honored to have its game compared toSecond Son"The comparison is flattering," Murray explained,"as we have a longstanding friendship with Sucker Punch and are fans of the InFamousseries."

That said, Murray went on to say that even though the studio is flattered by the comparison, the two titles are very different games.
Beyond some surface similarities, Sunset Overdrive is its own unique experience. Movement through Sunset City is connected to the city itself – you’re grinding along handrails and telephone wires, bouncing off of cars and awnings, wall-running along skyscrapers, gliding across canals and rivers – and is inspired by anime movies and comic books as much as games like Tony Hawk, Jet Grind Radio, Prince of Persia, and our own Ratchet & Clank.

We also have a very strong emphasis on combat and gunplay and have created a large arsenal of the crazy weapons that can only come from Insomniac. The marriage of acrobatic capabilities and wild gunplay as you move through a colorful city full of mutants, along with our tone, sense of humor, and interest in "fun" over "realism" makes Sunset Overdrive stand on its own.


Sunset Overdrive launches on October 28th, exclusively for Xbox One. In the meantime, find out why CraveOnline'sJonathan Leack believesSunset Overdrive will be better than InFamous: Second Sonand be sure read ourfull interviewwith the studio for all the juicy details.
