FUSE tells the tale of the four elite, covert agents of Overstrike 9 as they battle to protect mankind from a deadly alien energy source known as Fuse. Each character is class based with a unique upgrade tree as well as their own specific Xenotech weaponry, which according to Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price, are pretty cool...

Insomniac Games is known for delivering best-in-class weaponry that breaks the mold of traditional video games – and Fuse is no different... 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.

As is de rigeur for modern games, there's a whole bunch of pre-order bonuses which will unlock special armour and weapon customisations, including:

  • 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

If multi-player isn't your thing the game is also set up for solo play. Using the game's LEAP feature players can seamlessly switch between the characters at will during the game. As for who you'll be playing, meet the team...

DALTON GREEN - A former Raven Sentinel, Dalton joined Overstrike 9 after a failed assassination attempt by his former employer. Despite his checkered past, Dalton is the de facto leader of the elite team of agents charged with tracking down and containing the Fuse compound. Never one to hold back, Dalton’s answer to most problems is to come out swinging and figure it out after the bodies have hit the ground. He charges head first into most conflicts using his Magshield to catch and redirect enemy projectiles.

JACOB KIMBLE - Former LAPD homicide detective Jacob Kimble is no stranger to violence and covert operations. He joined Overstrike 9 because he detested the bureaucratic nature of traditional law enforcement. Armed with his Arcshot, Jacob can systematically pick apart enemies from a distance or create chaos by setting fiery traps of molten mercury.

NAYA DEVERAUX - Overstrike recruited Naya because she is the daughter of Raven Captain Luther Deveraux. However, this former assassin and close-quarter-combat (CQC) specialist brings a new dimension to the team as well. Naya’s weapon of choice is the Warp Rifle, which can create singularities to tear apart groups of enemies. The weapon also allows her to cloak herself. Once she gets behind enemy lines, Naya’s stealth and CQC expertise are invaluable.

FUSE is due for release on May 31st for PS3 and Xbox 360.
