PlayStation Trademarks Sunset Overdrive - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted 3 days ago / 1,084 Views
Sony Interactive Entertainment on April 26 filed a trademark for Sunset Overdrive in the US.
Sunset Overdrive was developed by Insomniac Games and published by Microsoft. It released for the Xbox One in October 2014 and for PC via Steam in November 2018.
Insomniac Games retained the rights to the IP and now that they are a first-party developer for Sony Interactive Entertainment, PlayStation owns the rights to it. This is the first time Sony Interactive Entertainment has registered the trademark.
Here is an overview of the game:
Don’t miss the single-player campaign from the game that IGN awarded Best Xbox One Game of 2014, the game that Polygon rated 9 out of 10, and the game that Eurogamer calls “a breath of fresh air.” In Sunset Overdrive, the year is 2027 and Sunset City is under siege. A contaminated energy drink has transformed most of the population into toxic mutants. For many it's the end of the world, but for you it’s a dream come true. Your old boss? Dead. Your boring job? Gone. Transform the open-world into your tactical playground by grinding, vaulting and wall-running across the city while using a devastating, unconventional arsenal. With hyper-agility, unique weapons, and customizable special abilities, Sunset Overdrive rewrites the rules of traditional shooters and delivers an explosive, irreverent, stylish, and totally unique adventure.
Embrace the chaos of Sunset City through a hyper-colorful, post-apocalyptic single-player campaign and two bonus expansions, Mystery of Mooil Rig and Dawn of the Rise of the Fallen Machines. Outgun crazed mutants, homicidal robots, and villainous thugs on your journeys with the included Weapons Pack.
