Open-world Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive has been given a rating by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board), indicating that the game will be coming to PC soon.

The ESRB rating for the game is M, which is the same rating it received on Xbox One. The board cites "blood and gore, drug reference, sexual themes, strong language and violence" as the reasons for its classification. The rating text itself is quite colorful reading; it lists a number of off-color quotes and references contained within Sunset Overdrive in the ESRB's characteristic matter-of-fact tone, so check it out if you'd like a chuckle.

This news comes after the Korean rating board listing was discovered for Sunset Overdrive earlier this year, giving the first indication of the game's existence on PC. This ESRB listing all but confirms a PC version of Sunset Overdrive, so if you've wanted to play the game but don't own an Xbox One, you're in luck.

This isn't the first time Sunset Overdrive has been slated for PC. Responding to a tweet from a fan back in 2016, developers Insomniac Games said they'd "love for [Sunset Overdrive] to come to PC", although Microsoft had the final say over whether this would happen or not. Sunset Overdrive was released in late 2014, so it missed the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative which sees many Xbox One exclusives playable on both PC and Xbox One. Insomniac itself has a history with Microsoft's rival, Sony, having developed the Ratchet & Clank and Resistance franchises for PlayStation consoles, as well as Marvel's Spider-Man for the PS4 more recently.

 
 

There's no word yet on when exactly Sunset Overdrive will be released for PC. The Korean rating board listing was filed back in May, while the ESRB listing was discovered just a few days ago. With this in mind, it's not unreasonable to expect a release relatively soon, although the exact window is unclear. Stay tuned for more news on this.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
