Today marks the release of Insomniac’s Fuse demo. You can currently download the demo on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Fuse allows players to play online cooperatively with up to four players or in a 2-player split-screen. In the demo, players 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. You will be able to use these abilities as they track down the Fuse source in a snowy secret weapon depot.
“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.”
Fuse will be available to buy in Europe on May 31.
