They use "lethal teamwork" and "an arsenal of fringe-tech gadgets" to best a global terrorism threat.

"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," commented 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."

Here are some screens - trailer to follow soon. Chew, swallow, digest, ruminate.
