In keeping with the legacy of Insomniac Games, their new Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive features some pretty spectacular weapons that are each capable of cutting a wide swath of destruction in their path. There’s no better way to see what a weapon is capable of other than a demonstration, and that’s exactly what Insomniac and Microsoft are offering up on a new Sunset Overdrive Walter’s Workshop website.
How it works is quite simple, actually. First you select the type of weapon to use. The choices include TNTeddy, the Roman Candle, the Pyro Geyser, and the Hack n Slay. Once the weapon is selected you choose a target ranging from a dummy to a refrigerator. Yes, with Walter’s Workshop you can sort of relive the excitement of nuking a fridge.
Once those variables are set it’s time to hit the fire button and watch the damage unfold. The problem is the poor target gets blown to bits in a split second and that’s not fulfilling at all. No worries, though, as a super slow motion replay allows plenty of time to soak in the moment of impact and subsequent explosion.
Sunset Overdrive opens up a world of fun on October 28.
