Sunset Overdrive Confirmed for PC; Coming to Steam with Regional Pricing

Sunset Overdrive PC is finally happening. Before working on Spider-Man for the PS4, Insomniac worked on this Xbox exclusive gem which is now coming to PC.


After a lot of rumours and leaks, we have official confirmation that this game is coming to PC and not just that, it will be available on Steam along with regional pricing. many were worried about it being only available on the Microsoft Store which most people are not a big fan of.

The game will release in a couple of hours but as of this moment, there is no Steam page for the game which means that we cannot see the regional pricing for India or any other region for that matter but it has been confirmed by a key seller site that has partnered with THQNordic.

Not much is known about the PC port at this moment, besides what seems to be better texture quality from the gameplay trailer above. The game has not received an Xbox One X patch which has a lot of gamers worried if the game will be playable at 60fps on the PC or not with many stating that the lack of 60fps would mean that they won’t pick up the game.

ESRB Rates Sunset Overdrive For PC

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated the Insomniac Games-developed open-world action adventure game Sunset Overdrive for PC.

The new rating follows a PC rating from the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea back in May.

Here is the ESRB’s description of the game:

This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a young survivor battling through a mutant apocalypse. As players traverse the open-world of Sunset City, they use assault rifles and fantastical weapons (e.g., grenade launchers that shoot teddy-bear bombs, guns that shoot fireworks) to kill mutant creatures, robots, and occasional human enemies. Combat is highlighted by frequent explosions, screams of pain, and gunfire. Some explosives cause enemies to be dismembered, leaving limbs around the environment; one cutscene briefly depicts a character’s head cut off by a mutant. During the course of the game, characters and environmental elements reference sexual behavior or humor (e.g., “Oh, such a bold statement! It says, ‘I am a prostitute!’” and “How hard was it to make a porn flip book?” ); a radio ad contains a running joke about a sex burger (e.g., “It’s so good you won’t be able to contain your urges to rub it all over your Sex…Burger”). The dialogue contains a handful of drug references (e.g., “You guys have been eating weed” and “Oh, when I get back with your drugs, we’ll discuss my offense at your assumption that I would know where to find drugs”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” also appear in dialogue.

Sunset Overdrive launched for Xbox One in October 2014. A PC version has yet to be announced.
