Sunset City is the city where Sunset Overdrive takes place. It is a giant futuristic metropolis, located somewhere in the USA.

In 2027, the Fizzco corporation released a contaminated drink known as the OverCharge Delirium XT into the city, resulting in an outbreak of grotesquely mutated humans simply known as OverCharge Drinkers. This outbreak resulted in nearly the entire population of Sunset City being turned into OD, setting the story of the game.

Districts Edit

Sunset City is divided into 4 main districts, each with its own distinct look and landmarks.

Trivia Edit

  • Sunset City is the third iteration of the game world. The first version was Greenlight, which was not designed around traversal because most of the action was to take place indoors. The second version was Razor City, which was closer to Sunset City, but included areas that were off limits during open world play, which caused problems when designing traversal paths around those areas.
