Watch the opening cinematic for Sunset Overdrive

Good thing you weren't drinking the OverCharge.

Sunset Overdrive

Insomniac Games debuted the opening cinematic to Sunset Overdrive during its panel at Rooster Teeth Expo in Austin this weekend.

The game starts when drink company Fizzco hosts the pre-launch party for its new OverCharge Delirium XT energy drink in its hometown of Sunset City. You’re working cleanup duty, and aren’t drinking OverCharge. But those who do end up transforming into hideous mutants, leading to the lock-down of Sunset City.

Watch the footage below, starting at 21:33:00. (It should start at the cinematic once you hit play, but that’s the time in case Twitch goes wonky.)

Sunset Overdrive is due out for Xbox One on October 28.
