Patch Details for Sunset Overdrive

By Ashley Woodcock, 2 years ago
Insomniac Games' successful sandox title Sunset Overdrive has been out for just over a month now. With a very firm 4.6/5 star rating from the TA community, and a 4.5 from the newshounds own ArmaggedonPSA in the official site review, it's very safe to say that Sunset Overdrive is doing pretty well. However, the game unfortunately has a few issues that the game developers are thankfully looking to fix in the title's first patch.

We do have the full list of fixes to come in the patch, but Insomniac Games have also released a sweet screen and video to accompany the details. Who better to entertain us and make the news of a patch just that little bit more interesting? Sunset TV's host Brandon Winfrey of course! Check out the video for an overview of the patch:



Check out the full list of fixes included in the patch and be sure to post any issues you may still be having with the game on the teams Sunset Overdrive Forum, Troubleshooting Forum, Facebook, and/or Twitter.
