Wait. There's A Female Assassin In Sunset Overdrive?

Wait. There's A Female Assassin In Sunset Overdrive?

The makers of Sunset Overdrive are proud that you'll be able to make playable characters of different genders and ethnicities. So, of course, they decided to have some fun at the expense of Assassin's Creed.

Now, you won't hear the word Assassin or any mention of Ubisoft's hit period-piece action series in the latest promo clip for Insomniac Games' upcoming Xbox exclusive. But, with the recent drama surrounding the decision to nix playable female characters from this fall's upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity still fresh on people's minds, there's no mistaking who Insomniac are taking a jab at.

This glimpse at Sunset Overdrive's 'assassin' is very quick, making it tough to discern whether this is an actual outfit in the game or just a bunch of wardrobe choices that approximates the hooded look of Ubisoft's stealthy protagonists. We've asked Insomniac for comment and will update this post if they reply.


    As much as I don't appreciate the way Insomniac have been making/ milking their franchises for the last few years, destroying their fanbase.. This is funny.

    Hope the game ends up good.

      How has insomniac destroyed their fanbase?
      Last I checked, the recent R&C games have been pretty popular.

        The new game is, while better than the other recent ones, quite lacking and glitchey. The only time they revisit ratchet is to milk the old cash cow. The studios quality standards are not what they used to be. Just look at the sheer amount of games they made last gen vs the quality of their later titles.

        I'm not saying they are scum or terrible, but certainly not what they once were. At least not to their fans, regardles of platform.

    Geez, the budget to include her must have been through the roof.

      I hear they had to have TEN teams working just to include her.

        The game was originally a launch title but was delayed to include women.

    The real question is are they anatomically correct or are they just a Ken and Barbie ;)
