Get crazy, get wild! Let’s party, get loud! If you wanna have fun and do something craazyy!
Sunset Overdrive’s opening cinematic has appeared online following its showing on Twitch during the Rooster Teeth Expo in Austin, Texas, this weekend and the crazed party reminded me a lot of the Jersey Shore intro, even the events that followed everyone getting high on Overcharge, reminded me a lot of that too, that’s why I began this piece with the lyrics from the shows opening theme.. see, there’s method in my madness.
Sunset Overdrive needs to arrive sooner than it’s October 28, every time I see more and more of that game, I turn into a hyperactive child who’s just chugged an entire pack of sherbet. Perhaps that’s what it feels like to become one of the OD’d?
The opening cinematic, which you can see above, see’s our main protagonist (though your own character will be yours to create) play no part in FizzCo’s huge opening event for Overcharge Dilerium XT, the energy drink which seems to be turning people into mutants, and instead is witness to some unfortunate party-goer turn, right in front of his eyes. Luckily he came prepared with Sunset Overdrive’s mobile app, and knew exactly what to do when the proverbial shit hit the fan.
Along with the intro, some raw gameplay footage from RTX has also been uploaded which you can see below!
What are your thoughts? Are you as excited as me? Probably not. I’m CrAaAaaaaAzyy…
