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.Sunset Overdrive launches on October 28th, exclusively for Xbox One.
