Insomniac Games recently announced their upcoming third person shooter OVERSTRIKE. In the previews for this game we see that they’ve stuck to their traditional witty writing and light-hearted style.
For an action packed elite squad of ass-kicking soldiers, the Overstrike team is refreshingly human. They bicker and have flaws that are unrelated to your playing ability but are all about character development. Also, over-sized body parts (read: chins and hands) and personalities are back and in full effect.
From the official site:
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
