Overstrike is the new game from Electronic Arts and Insomniac Games, the creators of Ratchet and Clank. Overstrike is a 4-player co-op action game that will have imaginative weaponry with immersive and witty storytelling, according to EA. The story will follow a team of elite outcasted agents called Overstrike 9, comprised of an ex-mercenary, a lifelong thief, a gifted young scientist, and a decorated detective. The team must stop a global terrorist group who is trying to wipe out humankind.
"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," said Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac Games.
Overstrike will be Insomniac's first multiplatform release, coming out for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. We'll have more details to come during our extensive E3 2011 coverage.
