Check Out What Happened When They Tried To Make Live Action Trailer For The Sunset Overdrive Game


22, 2014

Insomniac Games and Xbox have been filming a live action trailer to promote the upcoming Xbox One exclusive, Sunset Overdrive. Check out what happened during the shoot of this trailer.

Over the past several months, the team put together an extensive production crew, drafted an array of storyboards and scripts, and created realistic costumes, props and backdrops to replicate the colorful scenery from the game.

Insomniac Games and Xbox’s end-goal was to bring the humorous and over-the-top elements of Sunset Overdrive’s Awesomepocalypse to life, showcasing the games’ unconventional weapons, ferocious mutants and tongue-in-cheek satire. However, Sunset Overdrive proved to be too crazy and insane for anything real-life.

Also, check out the interactive version of the behind-the-scenes video (complete with additional content, surprises and Easter Eggs), and learn why creating a live action trailer for a game as crazy and action-packed as Sunset Overdrive may not have been the best idea. Some games are just too big for that.

This game is now available for pre-order and the Day One Edition includes the exclusive Nothin’ but the Hits gun, Fizzie character outfit and Hardcore! Hammer, an improvised melee weapon for smashing your enemies. Apart from this, Amazon and Microsoft Store are offering their own deals for this game pre-order.
