Sunset Overdrive has been rated for the PC by the ESRB

Back in May, we informed you about the Korean game rating board listing Sunset Overdrive for the PC. And even though Microsoft has still not announced anything official yet, the ESRB has followed by also rating this Xbox One-exclusive game for the PC.

Sunset Overdrive is an open world action-adventure third-person shooter that came out to Xbox One in 2014. In this game, the player assumes the role of an employee of FizzCo who has to fight off the Overcharge Drinkers: humans who have turned into mutants after drinking FizzCo’s energy drink beverage. Players can can wall-run, use zip-lines, and grind rails to swiftly navigate through it, with a large arsenal of weapons to use.

Here is the game’s description according to its ESRB rating.

“This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a young survivor battling through a mutant apocalypse. As players traverse the open-world of Sunset City, they use assault rifles and fantastical weapons (e.g., grenade launchers that shoot teddy-bear bombs, guns that shoot fireworks) to kill mutant creatures, robots, and occasional human enemies. Combat is highlighted by frequent explosions, screams of pain, and gunfire. Some explosives cause enemies to be dismembered, leaving limbs around the environment; one cutscene briefly depicts a character’s head cut off by a mutant. During the course of the game, characters and environmental elements reference sexual behavior or humor (e.g., “Oh, such a bold statement! It says, ‘I am a prostitute!’” and “How hard was it to make a porn flip book?” ); a radio ad contains a running joke about a sex burger (e.g., “It’s so good you won’t be able to contain your urges to rub it all over your Sex…Burger”). The dialogue contains a handful of drug references (e.g., “You guys have been eating weed” and “Oh, when I get back with your drugs, we’ll discuss my offense at your assumption that I would know where to find drugs”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” also appear in dialogue.”

Our guess is that Microsoft may officially reveal the PC version of Sunset Overdrive at its upcoming XO event on November 10th, so stay tuned for more!
