The Games with Gold for April features two co-op titles for your gaming pleasure. On the Xbox One, you'll be able to pick up Sunset Overdrive while on the Xbox 360 you can snag Saint's Row IV. Both titles will be free for a limited period of time!
Developer Insomniac has made their blockbuster title, Sunset Overdrive, available to the public via a limited time free trial. If the game caught your eye at one point, but you didn't want to fork up the cash to play it, take advantage of this perfect opportunity!
Boy, being a punk teen sure is a blast! It's like, who cares what country the Vietnam War took place in, right? Not me, that's for sure. I only care about information on the final Sunset Overdrive DLC and increasing Tom Delonge's net worth!
Like the blooming exuberance of Spring, like the taste of a cocktail crafted to perfection, like the music industry before Creed existed, all good things must come to an end. Alas, the DLC release schedule for Sunset Overdrive could not escape the ever-creeping tides of time. April 1st shall mark the release date of "Dawn of the Rise of the Fallen Machines", the game's final DLC pack.
You've done it. You finally bested Sunset Overdrive. Your significant other left you on account of how much of a 'tude you've gotten. You got fired because you insisted on wearing a sleeveless denim jacket to the quarterly finance meeting. You were kicked out of your apartment for blaring Blink-182's "First Date" for 3 hours straight, but none of that matters anymore. You and the game are one now, and it's signified to all by your complete annihilation of every achievement the game has to offer. Not even Todd from Accounting has done that.
The Sunset Overdrive DLC releases began just a couple weeks ago, starting with "Mystery of the Mooil Rig". To show players what they're getting into, Insomniac Games has released a new dev diary focusing on the two new Mooil-themed weapons.
Players have been having a blast moving throughout Sunset City, killing any and all pesky mutants in sight. We are happy to hear that the first DLC to hit Sunset Overdrive will be here just before Christmas this year!
The deals just keep coming as we inch ever closer to the Christmas holiday. What's that mean for you? Lots of great games, including many new releases, at cheap-o prices. Take for instance Sunset Overdrive from Insomniac games on Xbox One. A few weeks ago it was a full priced title. Now it can be had for just $40.
Microsoft is attempting something pretty bold this weekend, something that wouldn't be possible without the help of digital distribution. Xbox Live Gold members can download Sunset Overdrive for free and play it from November 22nd at 12.01 Eastern Time to November 23rd at 12:01.
Sunset Overdrive launches today on the Xbox One. Hopefully you've already taken the time to read our written review of the game, detailing both the single player and co-op content. But Sunset Overdrive is a very visual game, it's exploding with color and style and while words might adequately describe the technical merits of a game, seeing the game in motion paints a more accurate picture of its glamour and chaos.
If you've been thinking about pulling the trigger on an Xbox One, you might want to wait just another week. Microsoft has announced that they'll be running a special holiday season promotion on Xbox Ones - $50 off any Xbox One console or bundle starting November 2nd.
We've got a handful of co-op releases this week, with one standout AAA game that we've already reviewed. What else is on tap? A fresh coat of paint on a 15 year old game and a new version of an odd yearly franchise.
