Electronic Arts and Insomniac Games have announced Fuse, a 4-person co-op action shooter that puts players into the roles of four agents with their own unique skills and experimental weapons.
Formerly known as Overstrike, Fuse allows gamers to play as Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble or Naya Deveraux as they fight to protect mankind from a deadly alien energy source known as Fuse.
“EA is honored to be working with world-renowned developer, Insomniac Games, to bring their first multiplatform release to players everywhere,” said Sinjin Bain, Vice President of EA Partners. “This studio is known for delivering high-quality, action-packed, and most importantly – fun – games. Fuse is on target to deliver that and more in March.”
Fuse is a 4-person co-op action game where solo players can experience the unique attributes of each agent by using the game’s LEAP feature to switch between the four characters at will during combat. Each agent is equipped with unique skills and weapons. Experimental Fuse weapons are powered by a volatile alien substance that gives players unique capabilities.
Users can also play online or offline and level up along unique character paths, allowing players to unlock more powerful Fuse-driven abilities as the game progresses.
Fuse is the first multiplatform release from Insomniac Games, the developer known for creating franchises like Ratchet & Clank and Resistance. Fuse is scheduled to launch in March 2013 in North America and Europe for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
