New Sunset Overdrive PC Update for Beta-Branch Removes Minimum Spec Check and Addresses Mouse Sensitivity


Developer Blind Squirrel Games has released a new Sunset Overdrive PC update for the beta-branch which removes the game’s minimum spec check and makes changes to how the mouse controls work.

Please note that this update is an in-progress build, and those interested in this beta build will need to opt-in into the ‘publictest’ beta.

“Thanks again for the continued feedback and excitement around Sunset Overdrive PC”, the developer writes. “We’re still working to address some of the issues that have been raised but, instead of waiting until after the Thanksgiving holiday to post an update we’ve decided to post our in-progress build to a beta-branch for you to check out.”

The changes implemented in this new build have been included below:

  • Mouse Sensitivity – We’ve made updates to how the mouse controls work to address the feedback you’ve been giving us. You will likely need to adjust your in-game mouse sensitivity after updating, but should see a noticeable improvement here.
  • Cyrillic Usernames/Saves – Users with Cyrillic (or non-ASCII) characters in their usernames should now be able to have saves work as expected.
  • Min-Spec Check – We’ve removed the block that prevented some users from entering gameplay based on how our game detected your system specs. Bypassing this may result in reduced stability or other gameplay issues for systems that are low on RAM, etc.

Sunset Overdrive is available now for PC and Xbox One. The action title was released for Xbox One back in 2014. The PC version was released earlier this month.
