The first weapon pack for Sunset Overdrive is now available to download.

Posting on Xbox Wire, Insomniac Games and Microsoft revealed that the pack contains “four new weapons and obtain more strategic options for creative mayhem and destruction”.

The four weapons included in the weapons pack are as follows:

  • Plague Bomb – Instantly intoxicate enemies in the area with this weapon. Enemies hit with the Plague Bomb will start vomiting, take damage over time and explode when killed. Plus, enemies affected by the Plague Bomb can spread the disease to others!
  • Rager – Releases a confusion-inducing cloud which causes enemies to attach each other in a fit of rage. And yes, they also explode when killed (sense a bit of a theme here?).
  • Shield Buddy – Activates a shield that protects you and your friends but also deploys bombs that will decimate your foes. No need to choose between offense and defense when you can have both with the Shield Buddy.
  • Multi-Lock Rocket Launcher – The most literal of the weapons included in the pack, the Multi-Lock Rocket Launcher does exactly that and locks on up to eight targets. Release the trigger and send a legion of homing rockets at your enemies.

The weapons pack is free for those with the Sunset Overdrive Season Pass or available to purchase separately for £3.99. You can add the weapon pack to your transfer queue from the Xbox.com website.
