Have you ever dreamed of a career in cosmic exploration? Today EA and Insomniac Games announced the first details of Outernauts, a completely new intellectual property and the indie developer’s first game tailored for Facebook. 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. Outernauts marks the first foray into the social gaming space for Insomniac Games, creators of the Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, and Overstrike franchises.
Outernauts is currently in a closed beta testing phase and will launch on Facebook this summer.
