Major Nelson announced this morning on his blog that those who subscribe to Xbox Live Gold will be able to play Sunset Overdrive for free on the Xbox One this Saturday starting at 12:01 p.m. EST.
The full game, including the campaign, unlockable achievements, and Chaos Squad, the eight-player co-op mode, is available for users to access. After the free play ends on Sunday, gamers can continue playing the game right where they left off if they choose to buy the full version at a later date.
Sunset Overdrive is a third-person shooter created by Insomniac Games, best known for their Ratchet and Clank series. The game is set in the near future and focuses on the Sunset City, a place rampant with people transforming into mutants from consuming the FizzCo energy drink, Overcharge Delirium XT. The player is a customizable employee from FizzCo in charge of cleaning up the city.
The game is exclusively on the Xbox One and retails for $59.99. There’s also a white Xbox One Sunset Over Drive bundle for $599
