Sunset Overdrive introduces female hero option

Plus, a look at the game's new traps feature.

Sunset Overdrive

This week’s episode of Sunset Overdrive news program Sunset TV introduces the female hero option and traps.

In Sunset Overdrive, players will create their own hero. You can be male or female, and all clothing is gender-neutral, meaning you can be a guy in a skirt if you really want to.

Traps are a new way to kill enemies, which mainly come into play during night defense, when you’ll have to fight an assault of enemies trying to take your Overcharge. There’s a variety of traps to place, and like the game’s weapons, each has a “crazy theme” and unique functionality that make it stand out.
