EA and Insomniac Games announced that the demo for the co-op shooter, Fuse, will be available on Xbox Live and PSN on May 7, allowing players to play online cooperatively with up to four players, or in a 2-player split-screen. In the demo, players will take on the role of four elite operatives – Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble and Naya Deveraux. These special agents are out to protect mankind from Fuse, a deadly alien energy source which has been stolen by the rogue paramilitary organization, Raven. Each of the characters delivers a unique gameplay experience, as they have their own individual and unique “Xenotech” weapon and specialized skills. Players will use these abilities as they track down the Fuse source in a snowy secret weapon depot.
The demo is going to go a long way in selling this game, normally games that get delayed and delayed like this don’t usually turn out well. As you may or may not know, the game was originally announced under the name Overstrike, then we heard nothing, then it was delayed and then it was re-announced as Fuse. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Fuse will be available on May 28 in North America and May 31 in Europe for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
