Viral website launches for Xbox One exclusive game 'Sunset Overdrive'

"Sunset Overdrive" was teased at E3 2013 as an exclusive shooter for Microsoft's Xbox One console, and it appears this year's E3 will show the game in all its glory, if a new viral website is any indication.

Microsoft and developer Insomniac Games have launched a website for OverCharge Delirium XT, the fictional beverage in "Sunset Overdrive." According to the site, Delirium XT will allow users to "become a better you," likely hinting that the beverage will power up users with special abilities.

Six characters are also listed on the website, as well as two locations. Food appears to be a major aspect of the game, as "SexBurger" is one of the locations.

Notably, the site features four "coming soon" locations: Los Angeles on June 9 (E3), San Diego on July 24 (Comic-Con International), Cologne on Aug. 13 (Germany's Gamescom), and Seattle on Aug. 30 (PAX Prime). Presumably, this would mean the game would at least be demonstrated at these gaming conferences, although it seems more likely it would be playable at some of them, as the game is expected to release this year.

Given the website, more information on "Sunset Overdrive" could actually be released this month in advance of E3. Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, recently wrote on Twitter that it will be a "good month" for gaming news as his team has some things planned for May instead of E3.
