Sunset Overdrive will get its final piece of DLC on April 1st, developer Insomniac just announced. Known as The Dawn Of The Rise Of The Fallen Machines, it adds a new area and related missions to the game along with some other goodies. The last add-on campaign was very good, so I'm excited for this new one! » 3/03/15 11:05am 3/03/15 11:05am

I Wish Sunset Overdrive's New Weapons Were Part of the Original Game

Sunset Overdrive, the Xbox One's whacky new open-world shooter, got its first batch of downloadable content this week. The most important part of the DLC is a weapon pack that adds four new guns to the game. They're all really good—so good that I wish they'd been in the original game. » 11/26/14 11:45am 11/26/14 11:45am

Sunset Overdrive: The Kotaku Review

"I started this game collecting trash," my character quipped late in Sunset Overdrive, "and now I'm collecting trash again." She was defending a makeshift boat that was trying to escape the zombie-infested wasteland of Sunset City. It was a thrilling chase scene. So why were we collecting trash in the middle of it? » 10/27/14 10:00am 10/27/14 10:00am

Dying In Sunset Overdrive Is Pretty Goofy

Dying a horrible death in a video game is usually, well, horrible. If only there was some way to add a little style and grace to the whole process. What's that you say, Sunset Overdrive? You think you can make being eaten by a horde of unsightly mutants downright charming? Well, we'll have to see about that! » 10/24/14 5:30pm 10/24/14 5:30pm

I'm Pretty Sure Sunset Overdrive is Ratchet & Clank Reskinned

Back in the day Insomniac was top tier PlayStation. The Ratchet & Clank series ruled (unless you preferred Jak & Daxter, in which case: arguments) and it had nailed a perfect mix of run and gun controls and 'what the hell did I just shoot' weapons. Why any of it was happening didn't matter, only that felt great doing… » 7/24/14 6:30pm 7/24/14 6:30pm

Sunset Overdrive Co-Op Looks Pretty Damn Fun

Imagine a Tony Hawk game with crazy guns on a Horde Mode-style map. Insomniac Games did more than imagine. They built something very much like it for Sunset Overdrive's Chaos Squad multiplayer. Looks crazy enjoyable. » 7/02/14 9:40am 7/02/14 9:40am

​Wait. There's A Female Assassin In Sunset Overdrive?

The makers of Sunset Overdive are proud that you'll be able to make playable characters of different genders and ethnicities. So, of course, they decided to have some fun at the expense of Assassin's Creed. » 6/20/14 12:07pm 6/20/14 12:07pm

Our First Real Look At Sunset Overdrive

Insomniac, to put it bluntly, has something to prove right now. The renowned studio behind franchises like Spyro and Ratchet & Clank underwent what could very charitably be described as a dry spell after it released Resistance 3 in 2011 with a duo of unsatisfactory Ratchet & Clank titles and the thoroughly… » 5/08/14 9:00am 5/08/14 9:00am

​Indie Game Studio Survives 20 Years, Makes A Wild Video About It

When you're a company that's created beloved game series like Spyro the Dragon and Ratchet & Clank, there's a lot to be proud of. But this grunge/rap music video that Ted Price and crew made to celebrate on Insomniac Games' 20th anniversary? This might be their shining achievement. » 3/25/14 11:30am 3/25/14 11:30am

Insomniac's Space Pokémon Game Flees Facebook For Mobile Pastures

The makers of Ratchet and Clank turned their attention to Facebook last year, creating Outernauts, a hip, Pokémon-style battle game with absolutely splendid art design. Today Insomniac revealed plans to shut down the game's web presence on January 31, focusing on making a mobile version more people might play. » 12/04/13 4:29pm 12/04/13 4:29pm

Insomniac Is Making a Wild Exclusive For the Xbox One

Sunset Overdrive is a new game from Insomniac Games. It's an open world shooter with character design much like that of Overstrike, prior to the redesign/change to Fuse. And unsurprisingly, that means it looks fantastic. » 6/10/13 1:07pm 6/10/13 1:07pm

What Fuse Lacks In Story It Makes Up In Gameplay, Six Reviews Say

Perhaps keeping Fuse as a "Ratchet & Clank with humans" would have helped it stand out more. Too late for that now. Luckily, Fuse is still thought to be a more or less a fun shooter, even if it's not without flaws. » 5/29/13 5:00pm 5/29/13 5:00pm

Fuse: The Kotaku Review

From the outset, Fuse feels like a familiar game—it mixes some of the best ideas from a bevy of other titles into a futuristic third-person shooter. Think Borderlands meets Bulletstorm with a dash of Uncharted. That sounds sweet on paper, but Fuse proves that it takes more than a list of good ideas to make a game… » 5/29/13 12:30pm 5/29/13 12:30pm

Fuse—the multiplayer shooter that evolved from a more cartoon-styled earlier version called Overstrike—will be getting a demo for PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 7th. So, if you want to see if the game will be worth your time, that's your best chance. » 5/03/13 1:30pm 5/03/13 1:30pm

Finally… Ratchet & Clank Are Getting a Movie

If you’ve played and loved the Ratchet & Clank games, then you’ve wondered why the series’ slapstick humor and crazy sci-fi action hasn’t been translated into a TV show or a movie yet. I know I have. Well, it’s finally happening. » 4/23/13 9:07am 4/23/13 9:07am
