Insomniac, developers of the Resistance and Ratchet and Clank series, have announced their new Facebook game, Outernauts. Not that the name should be a surprise for anyone following TSA, having already uncovered it a while back.
“Have you ever dreamed of a career in cosmic exploration?” asks the press release. “Combining Insomniac’s immersive storytelling with a unique art style and sense of wit, Outernauts is an adventure role-playing game that casts players as members of United Earth’s elite Outernaut force.”
Outernauts marks the first foray into the social gaming space for Insomniac Games.
“We see a huge opportunity to reach an entirely different audience of gamers through Facebook,” said Ted Price, President and Founder of Insomniac Games.
“As we have demonstrated for nearly twenty years in the console games space, we’re confident we can help evolve the definition of a game experience on Facebook. With Outernauts, we are delivering a deep story with real RPG strategy, coupled with Insomniac’s signature sense of humour.”
Outernauts is currently in a closed beta testing phase and will launch on Facebook this summer.
