Live Action Trailer Perfectly Captures Sunset Overdrive’s Absurdity

While it was teased last week, the Sunset Overdrive live action trailer has been released, and it’s something else. Instead of having a traditional live action trailer that tries to reenact the events in the game, Microsoft and Insomniac Games have created something that makes fun of that, setting up a fake behind-the-scenes scenario where things go horribly, horribly wrong.

If anything else, it captures the stupidity and over-the-top nature of the game perfectly. The message seems to be clear: what you do in Sunset Overdrive can not, and should never be attempted in real life. Also, don’t hire someone so sketchy to handle your pyrotechnics.
