Insomniac unveils Overstrike for Xbox 360 and PS3
Insomniac has traditionally been a PS3 developer, but that's about to change with the announcement of a new game called Overstrike, shown off on the company's website right now.
According to the description on the site (which you can see in full after the break), the game features four-player co-op with four different characters (an ex-merc, a thief, a scientist, and a detective) all each with "unique talents and a tendency to completely ignore protocol." All four are members of a group called Overstrike 9, fighting against "a shadowy organization that threatens to wipe out humankind."
Update: The trailer's arrived on the website. Watch the embed after the break.
Set in the near-future, Overstrike follows a team of four elite agents obliterating enemy strongholds using fringe-tech gadgets and lethal teamwork. The members of Overstrike 9 are comprised of an ex-mercenary, Interpol's most wanted thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective. Collectively, they are the agency's outcasts. But a shadowy organization threatens to wipe out humankind. Thanks to each agent's unique talents and a tendency to completely ignore protocol – Overstrike 9 is the only option left. Overstrike blends developer Insomniac Games' flair for exotic weaponry and immersive storytelling with a touch of humor in this 4 person co-op action game.
