Electronic Arts has confirmed today that the much anticipated sci-fi shooter Fuse will launch at the end of May.
Developer Insomniac Games has taken its sweet time with the title. It was first unveiled as ‘Overstrike’ back in E3 of 2011 but was then presented as ‘Fuse’ at a PAX event in fall of 2012. Somewhere along the development cycle of Overstrike, they decided on revamping several things and ultimately brought out Fuse, a bettered version of the initial Overstrike.
Fuse is also the first major title from Insomniac which isn’t exclusive to the PS3. So there is hope that the title is well received by the masses.
Fuse stars four elite covert agents — Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble, and Naya Deveraux — each with his own Xenotech weapon and set of unique skills. They have to band together to protect mankind from a deadly alien energy known as Fuse.
Insomniac Games is known for delivering best-in-class weaponry that breaks the mold of traditional video games — and Fuse is no different,” said Ted Price, the chief executive officer and founder of Insomniac, in a statement. “These Xenotech weapons further the innovation players will find in this unique action co-op shooter. We can’t wait to bring Fuse, our first multiplatform game, to gamers worldwide this May.
