After all those years of Playstation exclusives, it’s hard to remember that Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac is still independent. But they’re finally stretching their wings, collaborating with Electronic Arts for a game called Overstrike, which will be playable on systems other than the one you use as a Blu-ray player.
But Overstrike won’t be their first release with EA. They just announced something imminent called Outernauts!
Combining Insomniac’s immersive storytelling with a unique art style and sense of wit, Outernauts is an adventure role-playing game that casts players as members of United Earth’s elite Outernaut force. The Outernauts are charged with capturing and training exotic alien beasts as they 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 to master a wild, untamed universe.
Sweet! So when can I play it?
Outernauts is currently in a closed beta testing phase and will launch on Facebook this summer.
