E3 2011: EA Announces Overstrike

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Insomniac Games, the developers behind Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, took their turn at today's EA Press Conference at E3 to announce their first multiplatform title, Overstrike, is currently in development.

Overstrike centers around a group known as the Overstrike 9. They are the only team that can take down an organization which is currently threatening to conquer the world. Overstrike is a four-player co-op game, which allows you to take control of one of the elite agents within the Overstrike 9; specifically either an ex-mercenary, a lifelong thief, a gifted young scientist or a decorated detective. While they are considered outcasts within their own organization, they are known to be the squad best-suited to take down the present threat.

Ted Price, CEO and Founder of Insomniac games spoke a little on the title.

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.
Several screens and a video were also released of Overstrike.
