Insomniac had more than one big announcement this week, revealing new games in both of its key series.
Insomniac Games told us in late July that it'd announce a new game before PAX 2010 that it would demo at the convention on September 4. The studio instead decided to announce two games: Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.
Resistance 3 (trailer below) is no surprise, as there'd been indications Insomniac had the game planned for a while now. Insomniac's teaser trailer for the game is purely cryptic, consisting of real-life footage of a train getting attacked by Resistance's alien enemies. I'm sure there are hints in there somewhere, so feel free to excise any information you can, because Insomniac has only said that game details are "coming soon" and given Resistance 3 a release date of "TBA."
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One actually is a surprise, as most people probably expected Resistance 3 and nothing else. Insomniac isn't holding much back on All 4 One, with its first trailer already revealing the whole shebang. All 4 One is a four-player co-op game, both offline and online, that has gamers working together as they swing from helicopter robots, jump across platforms, and battle various types of enemies. In addition to Ratchet and Clank, players also take on the roles of Captain Qwark and mad scientist Dr. Nefarious as they undo one of Nefarious' mistakes gone awry. It looks like a party game that everybody could enjoy and is scheduled for Fall 2011.
Sorry, Spyro fans. Insomniac did not announce when it'll be bringing back the little purple dragon. Here's the Resistance 3 trailer:
