Sunset Overdrive Has Playable Females

Here’s something that should be commonplace but isn’t.

Insomniac Games has confirmed that Sunset Overdrive will include playable female characters. Go figure. They’re also giving you the ability to customize your skin colour and body type in the game, which means you can be whoever you want to be. All the clothing in the game will even work with both genders, so you can be a guy in a dress, if that’s what you want. Insomniac explains the features in the video above, along with the very cool traps that you’ll be able to use to your advantage in the game.

This comes just a few weeks after Ubisoft made some controversial statements about putting females into their future games, in particular, the Assassin’s Creed series. Insomniac seems to be calling them out directly with their female character’s choice of hoodie in the video.

We also feel compelled to point out that you can clearly see EPN’s own Best of E3 award at the start of the video, which we presented to Insomniac at E3 last week.

Sunset Overdrive will launch exclusively on the Xbox One on October 28.
