Fuse Release Date Announced
EA Games and Insomniac Games have announced today that the four-person co-op action shooter—Fuse—will be released on May 28 in the US and a few days after on May 31 in Europe.
Fuse thrusts players into the roles of four characters, all of whom have been covered in a series of videos and related infographics. They include Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble, and Naya Deveraux—each of whom has their own unique set of skills which players can utilize as they play through the game as any of the four characters. Players can play through the game alone or with one or more friends in co-op using the game’s “LEAP” feature, which allows players to switch between any of the four characters at any time in the game.
Insomniac Games is best known for their Resistance and Ratchet & Clank series of games, all of which included a wide array of zany, unconventional weapons as the company’s signature design. As such, Fuse is expected to offer just as many unique weapons.
“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, CEO and Founder of Insomniac Games. “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 multi-platform game, to gamers worldwide this May.”
Players who pre-order the game will be able to unlock special armor and weapon customization for each of the game’s four characters. These include:
- Four Hyperion Prototype Agent Armor Skins—Upgrade your agents’ look with four special, state-of-the-art armor skins discovered inside the top-secret Hyperion Base
- Four Hyperion Prototype Weapon Skins—Customize your Fuse weapons with four skins based on each of the original prototypes developed inside Hyperion Base
- Quickdraw Team Perk—Increase your damage with this team perk adding powerful Fuse elements to all one-handed weapons for all four characters in your squad
The game will be out on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
