Insomniac Games Reveal Their Multiplatform Game: Overstrike

June 6, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

After teasing their reveal on Twitter, Insomniac Games has announced their highly anticipated multiplatform game for the PS3 and 360. On top of developing Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One exclusively for the PS3, Insomniac have teamed up with the EA Partners publishing program to create an entirely new game.

Announced in a press release before EA’s E3 conference showing, Insomniac Games revealed their first non-PlayStation exclusive game after 16 years of working with Sony. Overstrike will be “an Explosive Spy-Fi Adventure” that supports up to four player co-op.

Overstrike is a four-player cooperative action game featuring a team of elite agents called Overstrike 9. Comprised of an ex-mercenary, a lifelong thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective, the members of Overstrike 9 are considered outcasts within their own organization, but are the best team suited to stop a global terrorist group from attempting to wipe out humankind. Overstrike 9 uses lethal teamwork and an arsenal of fringe-tech gadgets to infiltrate and destroy enemy strongholds. Overstrike marks Insomniac’s first multiplatform release and will be available on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac Games said:

Overstrike presents a unique blend of features that have long been a part of the Insomniac DNA: high powered gadgets, action-heavy gameplay, memorable characters in a deep and mysterious universe and of course a touch of humor. And since this is our first multiplatform game, we’re especially excited to introduce ourselves to a new audience — one which may not have experienced our previous games.
