The city’s overrun with mutants. Problem? Not for you. Sunset Overdrive is a playground of post-apocalyptic possibilities. Vault, grind, and wall-run while using a deadly and unconventional arsenal. With hyper agility, unique weapons, and customizable abilities, it rewrites the rules of shooters while delivering an irreverent adventure.

Xbox One Game Clips

Using the Kinect for Xbox One gives you the ability to capture your own game footage—after it occurs.

  • The moment you’ve defeated a monstrous wave of OD in Sunset Overdrive, for example, just say "Xbox, Record That", and Xbox One will select and save a recording of the last 30 seconds of gameplay.

To view your captured Game Clips, go to the My Clips section of the Upload app. You can keep your Game Clips private or share them publicly with your friends. To edit your Game Clips and record voice-over, search Xbox apps for Upload Studio and follow the on-screen prompts to download and begin editing.

Xbox, Go to Sunset Overdrive
Launch the game from the Home screen or from the My games & apps screen.
Xbox, Help
Open Sunset Overdrive game manual.

Sunset Overdrive offers two game modes. The campaign is a story-driven, solo experience that allows you customize your character, gain new abilities/weapons, and explore the OD-filled streets of Sunset City.

Chaos Squad is a cooperative mode in which eight players work together to complete various objectives throughout the open world and earn rewards by surviving the climatic Night Defense finale.

Your character will be used in both game modes and will retain all their customizations, items, and abilities.

Joining a Chaos Squad match
After you have unlocked Chaos Squad in the campaign mode, you can join or start a match by stepping into one of the photo booths found throughout Sunset City.


Traversing and Combat
To make it through Sunset City, you’ll have to master shooting while bouncing and grinding.
Building Style
The more you stay off the ground while moving through the city (and killing enemies), the more style you will build (indicated by the meter in the top-right corner of the screen). Accumulating style isn’t just about being flashy; earning higher levels of style will activate your Amps.
Brewing Amps
Sunset Overdrive features a plethora of in-game power-ups called Amps. Visit Floyd at the various forts to earn new Amps.
Customizing Your Character
You can change your appearance—including gender—whenever you visit Calista, the vanity vendor. She is located at all Night Defense forts and faction bases.
Buying New Weapons
Add to your arsenal by visiting the vendor called Two-Hat Jack, who can be found at all Night Defense forts and faction bases.
Improving Weapons
Leveling up a weapon improves its stats and adds an Amp slot for additional weapon capabilities.
Quests and Challenges
Aside from the main storyline, Sunset Overdrive is full of optional quests and challenges. Completing these provides in-game rewards.


You can adjust all game settings in the Options screen, which can be found in the Pause menu.
