Electronic Arts Inc and Insomniac Games have announced the release of the demo release of the highly anticipated co-op shooter – Fuse™.
According to the press release, “The fast-paced demo will be available on Xbox Live® Marketplace and the PlayStation® Network on May 7, allowing players to play online cooperatively with up to four players, or in a 2-player split-screen.” The demo will give players the opportunity to play with four elite operatives – Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble and Naya Deveraux.
“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.”
The game is described as a co-op action game that allows both co-op and solo players to experience the unique attributes of each operative by using the game’s unique LEAP feature. Players can use LEAP to switch between the four Overstrike operatives at-will during combat. Each of the four characters is equipped with unique skills and weapons that are not only necessary for survival, but also create unexpected and extraordinary results, press release explains.
Fuse will be available on May 28 in North America and May 31 in Europe for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
