Released in 2014 for the Xbox  One, Sunset Overdrive featured a partnership of Insomniac Games and Microsoft to release a high powered action game for the then-new console. Zip, grind, wall-run to parkour around Sunset city in this third-person open-world shooter.

Here's a short description from the publisher:

2027. Sunset City. A contaminated energy drink has transformed most of the population into toxic mutants. For many, it's the end of the world, but for you, it's a dream come true. Your old boss? Dead. Your boring job? Gone. Transform the open world into your tactical playground by grinding, vaulting and wall-running across the city while using a devastating, unconventional arsenal. With hyper-agility, unique weapons, and customizable special abilities, Sunset Overdrive rewrites the rules of traditional shooters and delivers an explosive, irreverent, stylish, and totally unique adventure on Xbox One.

Features:

 
 
  • An Open World with No Rules: Leap off buildings, run along walls, and grind power lines and rails to destroy your foes from every angle.
  • Lethal Weapons: Collect and upgrade an arsenal of unconventional weapons that use items like dynamite, fireworks, harpoons, and acid to destroy your enemies.
  • Mayhem with Friends: Seamlessly transition from campaign to Chaos Squad, an 8-player cooperative experience. Vote on which objectives to attempt throughout the city, survive epic battles, and earn awesome in-game rewards.
