What happens when humans take possession of volatile alien technology they were never meant to have?
Electronic Arts has released a new trailer for Fuse, a 4-person co-op action shooter in the works at Insomniac Games and scheduled to launch in March 2013 in North America and Europe. Formerly known as Overstrike, Fuse thrusts players into the roles of four elite, covert agents with their own unique skills and experimental weapons. Gamers will play as Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble or Naya Deveraux as they fight to protect mankind from a deadly alien energy source known as Fuse.
Fuse weapons are powered by a volatile alien substance that gives players unique capabilities that expand their strategic options in and out of combat. Through lethal teamwork, players can complete objectives and kills to earn Fuse points for powerful upgrades. Players can also play online or offline and level up along unique character paths, allowing players to unlock more powerful Fuse-driven abilities as the game progresses. In addition, the game’s progression system is unified between different play modes, allowing players to continue improving their agents regardless of how they play.
