Resistance developer announces Outernauts

Ratchet & Clank and Resistance series developer Insomniac Games, with the assistance of publishing force EA, have announced their very first social game, a Facebook undertaking named Outernauts.

“We see a huge opportunity to reach an entirely different audience of gamers through Facebook,” boss man Ted Price says.

“As we have demonstrated for nearly twenty years in the console games space, we’re confident we can help evolve the definition of a game experience on Facebook. With Outernauts, we are delivering a deep story with real RPG strategy, coupled with Insomniac’s signature sense of humor.”

The adventure RPG will allow players to “explore planets, harvest loot, and fight asynchronously alongside or against friends to master a wild, untamed universe.” Exciting stuff.

It’ll be available this summer. Head to its Facebook page here for a few more screenshots.
