Insomniac Announces Overstrike, Their First Multiplatform Game

If you only have a 360, it's time to rejoice - one of the PS3's greatest developers has announced its first multiplatform game - Overstrike.

On top of PS3 exclusives Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, the studio will be developing the 360 and PS3 game with the help of EA Partners.

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.

In a press release, the developer detailed the game:

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.
