Examine Sunset Overdrive’s Amp System

Insomniac has released a new video for Sunset Overdrive that details the game’s amps, augments that add new effects to your character and weapons.

A player can have five amps active at any one time, four on your character and one on each weapon you have. The types of amp include vanity amps (that allow you to change the look of your character), character amps (add new abilities such as the Bowling Ball) melee amps (add new effects to your weapons such as tornadoes), and epic amps (add a constant damage effect around your character).

However, these amps won’t be available all the time, oh no, you’re going to have to put a little effort in. Filling your “style meter” will activate different amps. At level one vanity, character, and melee amps will activate; at level two you gain access to weapon amps, and finally at level three epic amps come out to play. Oh, and if you manage to reach max level, all of your amps enter overdrive, increasing their power.

Amps will require recipes to create, and the parts to these recipes can be obtained by defeating enemies.

Sunset Overdrive will be available later this year exclusively on Xbox One.
