Insomniac launches new games and pre-order extras at E3

Insomniac announced their launch plans for 3 of their latest games, Resistance 3, Ricochet & Ratchet, and their brand new title Overstrike during their opening presentation at E3. Overstrike revolves around an elite team of outcasts. Overstrike 9 is comprised of a reformed mercenary, a mischievous lifelong thief, a gifted but rebellious young scientist, and a temperamental decorated detective. Using an arsenal full of fringe-tech gadgets, this team of elite agents are ready to save the world in an epic adventure that spans the globe. Overstrike is a four-player co-op action experience, and is the first multiplatform release for Insomniac. What I like about this title is that it offers a choice of 2 female players and has the same feel as Gears of War. Check out the trailer for a better idea of the game play.
As for Resistance 3 fans, the pre-order has started and Insomniac has a few good reasons why pre-ordering your game may be worth while. Here is what’s on the table for pre-order early birds:

Game Stop pre-order: Exclusive Capelli Necklace & Multiplayer-booster
Joseph Capelli wears a necklace of Chimeran teeth during Resistance 3. Show that you are the resistance, with this authentic replica that symbolizes the battle against the Chimera. Pre-ordering at Gamestop grants access to a unique multiplayer-booster, which allows you to start Resistance 3 multiplayer at Level 5. This also offers immediate flexibility and character customization options from the moment you begin the online competitive game.

Amazon pre-order: Exclusive In-game Air Fuel Grenade
The No. 60 Air Fuel Grenade has been issued for combating Chimera in tight spaces commonly found in urban conflicts. The grenade will adhere to almost any surface, biological or otherwise, and deployed a cloud of flammable vapor. Once released, the cloud ignited, creating a massive explosion. Preorder at Amazon.com to bring this fan favorite grenade to your Resistance 3 campaign.

Best Buy: Exclusive Multiplayer Skin w/ Purchase
Lt. Nathan Hale skipped his viral inhibitor treatments in the final hours of Resistance 2, in order to continue the fight against the Chimera. Play as him in his final hours with this special multiplayer skin, letting you bring Hale to the battlefields of Resistance 3.

The Sentinels are an elite group of soldiers in Resistance, and the only way to obtain these exclusive multiplayer PSN tags is by pre-ordering at Wal-Mart

If you pre-order at any other retailer, you receive a special R-FORM skin. They were backbone of the U.S. effort against the Chimera during the war, Black Ops troops were a common site at SRPA facilities and during special operations. Mostly killed and destroyed, this special multiplayer skin lets you return as one of the most mysterious soldiers from R:FOM and R2.
