Insomniac Games, long-time ally to the PlayStation brand with exclusive franchises like Spyro, Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, turned heads early last year when the studio forged an alliance with EA to develop its first multiplatform game. Today that game has finally been announced.

Here’s the skinny on Overstrike, a ‘Spy-Fi’ action romp for PS3 and Xbox 360:

Set in the near-future, Overstrike follows a team of four elite agents obliterating enemy strongholds using fringe-tech gadgets and lethal teamwork. The members of Overstrike 9 are comprised of an ex-mercenary, Interpol’s most wanted thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective. Collectively, they are the agency’s outcasts. But a shadowy organization threatens to wipe out humankind. Thanks to each agent’s unique talents and a tendency to completely ignore protocol – Overstrike 9 is the only option left. Overstrike blends developer Insomniac Games’ flair for exotic weaponry and immersive storytelling with a touch of humor in this 4 person co-op action game.
