    Details and screens for Insomniac's new game, Fuse



    Fuse, the shooter from Insomniac and previously known as Overstrike, has had its embargo veil lifted and various sits have gone live with information.

    In the game, Fuse is an alien energy source located deep within a classified government facility. It is about to fall into nefarious hands, so the CIA has called in Overstrike 9 to thwart the theft by a rogue paramilitary organization called Raven.

    Overstrike 9′s pursuit of Raven will take them around the world, “from the fortified desert facility to underwater bases, island strongholds, icy mountain peaks, palatial hideouts and beyond.”

    Later, as the team closes in on Raven, another “more sinister enemy reveals itself” as a truly horrendous global threat.

    Players will participate as a character in the elite team along with up to three others in co-op, using Fuse-powered weapons to take back the stolen tech. Weapons and characters can be upgraded based on class.

    Players will be able to “Leap” between other agents in battle in order to combine abilities and weapons for more powerful attacks. Fuse-powered weapons can also be used to trigger what’s called “Fusion” for even grater damage.

    The trailer has been delayed over legal issues, as noted earlier today, but there are screenshots available below.

    Overstrike is slated for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 in March 2013.

    Looks pretty cool. Judging from the screens, it looks like trademark creativity is still in the weaponry, albeit not as obvious.

    No way EA will release this and army of two:devils cartel the same month.

    I'm going to have to see some gameplay before I get excited.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    Made by Insomniac: insta-buy. Still a little bummed about them going multiplatform. So much potential lost. I'd even prefer them going Xbox exclusive so they could put all their efforts into a single platform.

    Yeah, instabuy from me too. I can't decide if it looks average or good, graphically. I'll play it and no doubt enjoy it but from what I've seen so far it doesn't really have its own charm

    Doesn't appeal to me based on the description.

    It is Insomniac so I'm wiling to to listen until more info.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    I agree and now it looks like another cover based generic shooter without personality.I am very disappointed that it lacks the creativity and lush art direction that Insomiac is known for.They were on their way to being the next Rare and now they might be the next Rare.

    It looks fun to me. I won't condemn it before I play it or at least get some more info. For now it looks like I will be picking this one up. Insomniac is no Rare and vice versa.

    Doesn't mean the game will flop. Some of the negative post are probably just fanboys who can't get over the fact that the game is multi-plat. Iv'e seen the same stuff on here about certain games.

    Let it get a release in march and it's a 100% flop.

    This is going up against god of war(tho not a shooter, it's going to sell) and Gears of War(it's the same genre and it's going to sell).

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    Sure it may struggle going against two well established franchises like those but it doesn't mean the game is bad. Lots of people thought Sleeping Dogs was gonna flop too but it turned out ok. With EA's marketing and Insomniac reputation, this game has a chance at success. I'm sure Insomniac still has PS3 fans waiting for their next project, not to mention the 360 only gamers who want this game too. Besides, there may be some who may a little tired of GOW and Gears at this point.

    I'm kind of getting a Haze vibe just from the screen shots alone lol. But that's a good thing. I actually enjoyed Haze for what it was.

    meh i lost faith in IG since they started failing with Resistance. Their Online support has been horrible ever since R2, if this has online coop, expect flaws and long wait time for patches, especially if the game doesn't sell well.

    Not me. I loved Resistance 3. I thought it was a masterpiece and a return to the roots of the franchise. It's sad that they're not doing any more games in the series for the time being anyway. I guess it's good that they could at least admit that it was time to close the series out with style. So many franchises get dragged out these days with endless sequels.

    With that said, Insomniac has always been one of my favorite developers. Exclusive or not, i have faith in them when it comes to Fuse.

    Don't get me wrong i loved 80% of R3's campaign, i got so pissed after the train level when you know what happens and the game made me feel for it. but the ending was just complete BS on so many levels. And the Mp was plagued with crappy patches and stutters for the first 3 months which left me with little replay value after i platinumed it. IG used to be one of my favs but they've been dropping the ball too much lately.

    They were showing some gameplay last night on spike TV. It actually look pretty good. Reminded me of Gears in a way. Weapons are pretty cool and it looks like coop could be a blast.

    Doesn't look bad and I bet the online co-op will be fun with some others. The fact that there are classes means that they will probably all play differently and that mode alone will probably be pretty addicting. Interested in seeing some gameplay.

    add to the OP please Blacksite


    My initial reaction: Meh, looked a lot more interesting before this change. Overstrike in the E3 trailer looked like a brilliant concept compared to this

    I didn't see this before so I just added it to the OP now.

    The only difference I see from the new trailer and last year's cinematic are the character designs. I can't comment on the atmosphere since we're looking at two different levels.

    Can somebody please post some gameplay of Overstrike before it was "changed". I fail to see what people are saying. The only change I see is the name. The game seems to be exactly how they described it at E-3.



    What is this big change everyone is talking about?
