EA and Insomniac Games Reveal New Four-Player Co-Op Action Game Overstrike 9, which is comprised of an ex-mercenary, a thief, a scientist and a detective.

Overstrike 9 are considered “outcasts” but are thought to be the best available when a terrorist group tries to destroy humankind.

“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 Insomniac CEO, Ted Price.

“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.”

No date yet – expect that to be announced during the press conference going on right now – but it’ll launch on PS3 and 360.
