Fuse - Imnomniac's new game

You might remember this game as "Overstrike" (a name still applied to the games fiction, it's the name of the team you control) announced last year.

 

Fuse is due to be released next year.  It is a 3rd person 4-player co-op shooter and is the new project from Brian Allgeier, a man who has been a part of Ratchet and Clank development for the last 10 years.

 

Here is what he had to say on the PS Blog:

 

-------------------------------

 

Hi everyone! After a long journey navigating the sometimes-challenging waters of new IP development, we’re proud to reveal Fuse. Formerly known as Overstrike, it’s a third person, four-player cooperative game that centres around a volatile energy source that has fallen into the wrong hands. The substance, called Fuse, has been acquired by a terrorist organisation known as Raven and Overstrike 9 has been hired to track down and stop it from setting off a deadly arms race.

 

Fuse for PS3 Fuse for PS3

You can play with up to three of your friends, and each member of Overstrike 9 has its own signature Fuse-powered weapon. Play as Dalton Brooks, an ex-mercenary who has a Mag-shield that acts as portable cover and unleashes a devastating blast that liquefies opponents. Take on the role of Naya Deveraux, who can cloak to flank enemies and fire out mini-black holes that implode its victims.

 

As Jacob Kimble, you can keep enemies at a distance with the Arc Shot and shoot out charged bolts that chain react and fry enemies. Then there’s Izzy Sinclair, who can either launch out med beacons to heal teammates or fire her Shatter Gun to crystallise and explode nearby threats. And if you’re not sure who you want to play, you can use the LEAP feature to instantly switch to any available character. A good tactic when you’re in a pinch!

 

Fuse for PS3

As you take down targets with both Fuse and conventional weapons, you’ll earn valuable points than can be used to upgrade your weapons and character abilities. You’ll earn more points on executing cooperative kills and these points and upgrades are beneficial across both campaign and another mode we’ll be revealing at a later time.

 

I’ve been at Insomniac for more than 13 years and was part of the development of the first Ratchet & Clank for the PS2. It’s never easy developing new gameplay, an engaging storyline, and new technology from scratch but at Insomniac right now, we’re having a lot of fun both evolving and playing Fuse.

 

I believe the telltale signs of a signature Insomniac game are in full force. We’re diligently working on making sure each character and gameplay mechanic is satisfying to play. Our story is filled with intrigue and contains exciting plot twists with a touch of that classic Insomniac humor. And there won’t be a shortage of replay options thanks to our LEAP feature.

 

Fuse for PS3

 

We hope you’ll feel the same way when Fuse launches in March 2013!

They should have stuck with the Overstrike idea ... this to me looks like another generic shooter... I've taken it of my wishlist ...

Looks like Insomniac does FPS Prototype to me. I know it will play well and have some cool design ideas, but it looks rather monochrome. Even when there's greenery. Still, I'll be keeping an eye on it...

Fuse is a TPS pal.

Theres so many influences in that trailer, so far i can see some of MAG, Resistance 2, Prototype, Just Cause 2, why do companies insist on making shooters all the time, they're just boring now

And a demo walkthrough from Imsomniac's Brian Allgier (who was quite integral to the development on the older Ratchet games)

 

 

 

Interesting to hear the comparison with Resistance 2's co-op mode.  Bit worried that whenever you jump to another character you often end up standing around in the middle of enemy fire :|

AI is poor.
At the beginning of the level she kills someone in stealth mode right in front of a guard and he doesn't get alerted!
The AI/NPC doesn't see a man collapsing on the floor with his throat slicked 5 meters in front of him!

MGS 3 AI is smarter than this one.


Also if Insomniac keeps releasing 360 footage I am not going to get more interested in Fuse, actually all the opposite.

So far it's like a mix of Borderlands and Vanquish. I'm not sure I'm overly impressed. Seems sluggish andtoo chaotic. I'm not sure I'm even playing it right. Might need more plays.

I don't see the resemblance to either games. Loved the gameplay and the option to switch to any character available, to bad the demo was so short. Glad i preorded it, totally loved the demo.

Not to keen on it myself, also reminds me of Vanquish lol But that isn't because the game is bad it is because I am not keen on these sci-fi type shooters.

PS: Love the avatar Tux :D
