Sunset Overdrive 'Chaos Squad' 8-player co-op explained

Insomniac is explaining Sunset Overdrive's 8-player co-op multiplayer mode, known as Chaos Squad.


Sunset Overdrive combines all the fun of parkour and not getting killed by ravenous mutants. While that's a fun set of activities for a single person, there's nothing like getting friends in on the fun, so Insomniac is pulling the curtain back on the game's 8-player co-op mode called Chaos Squad.

Multiplayer sessions can be initiated directly from single-player by entering any of the green photo booths available in the world. This will match up a player's character (with everything currently equipped) with other users to vote on multiplayer missions to jump into, each with their own objectives. The missions culminate with a massive tower defense horde mission, which offers rewards that vary from cosmetic items to single-player weapons.

Get a look at how Chaos Squad will work by watching the video below. Sunset Overdrive will release on Xbox One on October 28.
