EA has announced the launch of Outernauts, Insomniac’s first game created for Facebook. The adventure role-playing social game allows players to capture and train “exotic alien beasts for battle” as they transform their “cosmic homeworld into a thriving galactic hub,” as members of United Earth’s elite Outernaut force. Players must also uncover the riddle behind mysterious “ancients” while “battling pirates and evil corporations seeking to control the galaxy.” Players will explore planets, harvest loot, and fight asynchronously alongside or against friends.

Insomniac has said its Facebook title, Outernauts, won’t be just a one-off entry but the start of a new franchise. Speaking with Gamasutra, lead designer Rowan Belden-Clifford said the studio is in the business of building franchises, “so don’t expect Outernauts to be going away anytime soon.” He also said with the firm is interested in seeing “where Facebook, mobile and tablet games go in the future,” the team is entirely focused on its first foray into the social games market, and for now a mobile version isn’t in the cards. For those uninterested in social titles, there’s always Overstrike, the firm’s first-person, four-player co-op shooter in development through EA Partners in works.
