EA and Insomniac Games Introduce Overstrike

A mysterious cabal threatens the world and the global governments are in their most desperate hour. With nowhere left to turn, the ragtag members of Overstrike 9 are their last, best hope. Comprising of outcasts and misfits that have been marginalized and shuffled around their organization, only this team has the skills to stop the imminent threat. An ex-mercenary, a lifelong thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective must work together and master cutting-edge fringe technology the world has never seen before. Energy shields, electrified crossbows, and invisibility fields are just the tip of the iceberg.

“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 the first multiplatform release from Insomniac Games, the creator of Ratchet & Clank and Resistance. They are introducing a brand new action game experience defined by intense four-player cooperative gameplay. Combat an international terrorist group entrenched in fortified strongholds spanning the globe, taking the fight to their front door. Insomniac is bringing their reputation and expertise in mixing exotic weapons with their signature sense of humor. Overstrike brings a new breed of explosive cooperative gameplay action to the PlayStation®3 and the Xbox 360®. For more information on Insomniac Games and Overstrike visit www.overstrikegame.com.
