To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Xbox One’s launch, Microsoft have announced that Sunset Overdrive will be available to play for free for a period of 24 hours.
Xbox Live’s Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb confirmed that for 24 hours starting at 9.01pm PT tonight or 12.01am ET / 5.01am GMT tomorrow morning, you’ll be able to download Insomniac’s exclusive title. This free download is one of the many ways Microsoft are celebrating the first year of the Xbox One.
For this free period, the entire game will be available to play and you’ll be able to earn achievements. Not only that, but your saved progress will carry over should you decide to buy the full game at a later date. Also, once you progress far enough to unlock it, the 8-Player Chaos Squad mode will also be available to play.
It was recently revealed that the Xbox One has managed to sell 1 million units in the UK and has been outselling the PS4 there for the last 3 weeks.
