Insomniac has revealedits first non-Sony exclusive in 16 years;a tongue-in-cheek4-player cooperative action gameentitled Overstrike. Billed as an %26ldquo;Explosive Spy-Fi Adventure%26rdquo;, the title stars a crack(ed) team of agents called Overstrike 9 who must combine their misfitpersonalities andoff-the-wall skills to stop a global terrorist group from wiping humanity off the face of the earth.

Hm, that seems to be a reccuring theme at E3, no?

Check out the new trailer plucked fresh from EA's E3 press conference:

%26ldquo;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,%26rdquo; said Insomniac boss Ted Price, adding, %26ldquo;And since this is our first multiplatform game, we%26rsquo;re especially excited to introduce ourselves to a new audience %26mdash; one which may not have experienced our previous games%26rdquo;

Judging by the trailer alone, Overstrikeappears to take a slightly more humorous approach to the action genre, paring Mass Effect-esqueaction with Team Fortress 2 charm. Hopefully we'll see more of this title soon so we can make much more educated comparisons.

Overstrike is being made for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
