E3 2011: Overstrike Preview (Trailer included)

It’s been spoken of for quite some time that Insomniac Games will finally step out of the Sony shadow and create a game fit for all systems. Well that day is finally coming in the form of Overstrike, a four-player cooperative action title to be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The game stars a team of highly-trained agents called Overstrike 9. The team consists of “an ex-mercenary, a lifelong thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective.” Their job: utilize their respective talents to end a shadowy organization hell bent on either taking over the world or wiping out mankind. Players will use teamwork and high tech gadgets to infiltrate and destroy enemy strongholds and bases.

“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. “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.”

Overstrike is being developed by Insomniac Games and published by EA.
