Developer Insomiac has announced their new IP Overstrike at EA's E3 press conference.
Overstrike is a four player cooperative action game in which players step into the shoes of Overstrike 9, who are tasked with stopping a global terrorist group from wiping out the human race. The Overstrike team consists of a grizzled ex-mercenary, a thief, a gifted young scientist and a detective.
The game will apparently combine imaginative weaponry and cooperative multiplayer gameplay with an immersive storytelling experience.
Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac, explained that "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 humour.”
Overstrike will be released on PS3 and X360, a released date is yet to be confirmed.
