EA/Insomniac Announce ‘Overstrike’

EA and Insomniac Games have announced ‘Overstrike’ for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Four player co-op is the order of the day here, as you play as part of a team known as Overstrike 9, which is comprised of a thief, ex-mercenary, a scientist and a detective.

When a terrorist group tries to destroy humankind these outcasts are the best hope we have. Insomniac CEO, Ted Price, had the following to say:

“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.”




  1. Seems wierd this not being a PS3 exclusive.

    • Yeah. Looks great though ;-)

  2. GREAT FUN XD seriously, I hope and expect it to live up to what I just said because it looks like a winner from the trailer :)

    • Most things look great from trailers.

      • But I trust Insomniac Games to make it great.

  3. Borderlands would be the one that would be similar to this I guess, interesting to see how Overstrike will go.

  4. Yeah doesn’t show us anything, but really nice trailer. Good concept, plenty of humour. Shame it’s not an exclusive, but s’alright.

  5. Just seen the trailer. It appears to be a wonderfull game.

  6. Seems like a mix of R&C [Gadgets, humor] and Resistance [Shooting]. Which can only be a good thing!

    • Agreed. As long as they keep the fun factor from R&C then this will be awesome. Personally I find resistance to be a real bore, it takes itself way too seriously. This looks like it fixes all that. Colour me impressed.

  7. I don’t like this at all :(.

    • How can you not like that? Looks outstanding (though there was no gameplay there, looks a lot of fun though!)

  8. Trailer looks great, but I doubt the game will end up being anywhere near as good.

  9. Kinda looks like Resistance in the R&C world. Just a bit more heavy on the combat.

  10. Looks phenomenal actually, hope they pull it off!
