EA and Insomniac will bring a demo for the upcoming team shooter “Fuse” to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live next week, allowing us to take a stab at 4-player online co-op and 2-player splitscreen.
In the demo, which will be available for download beginning May 7th, players fill the shoes of four elite operatives – Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble and Naya Deveraux – on a mission to protect mankind from the deadly Fuse, an alien energy source that has been stolen by a rogue paramilitary organization called Raven.
Each of the game’s characters has their own unique Fuse-powered “Xenotech” weapon and specialized skills that can be upgraded by collecting Fuse points. Rather than focusing on just one character, players will be able seamlessly switch between the four agents at any time using the LEAP system.
“When it comes to Fuse, the biggest thing we’ve noticed when sharing it with others for the first time is that playing is believing,” said Ted Price, CEO and founder of Insomniac Games. “Fuse takes four player co-op in a new direction with features you won’t find in other third person shooters: from LEAP where you can jump between each of the four unique agents at will to the experimental Xenotech weapons to the deep RPG-like character progression system. And by the way, all of these features rock for solo players as well. Join us in this brand new universe for a quintessential Insomniac Games experience.”
“Fuse” will launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 28th.
