EA and Insomniac Games have released an action-packed demo for the co-op shooter, Fuse. The fast-paced demo allowa players to play online cooperatively with up to four other players, or in a 2-player split-screen mode.
Fuse is 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. Powered by Fuse, the Xenotech weapons give players unique capabilities to expand their strategic options in combat. Through lethal teamwork, players can combine their weapons for unique kills to earn Fuse points for powerful upgrades.
In the demo, which can be downloaded as of now from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, 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 organisation, Raven. Each of the characters delivers a unique gameplay experience, as they have their own individual and unique “Xenotech” weapon and specialised skills. Players will use these abilities as they track down the Fuse source in a snowy secret weapon depot. Developed by the critically-acclaimed independent studio, Insomniac Games, Fuse will mark the company’s first multiplatform release when it becomes available on May 28th in North America and May 31st in Europe.
