Insomniac Games has officially revealed their 4-player cooperative title Fuse, formerly known as Overstrike. Initially announced in June of 2011, complete with a full-blown cinematic trailer, it's safe to assume Fuse has gone through several evolutions -- including a complete rework. The product as it stands now is nigh incomparable to that original trailer, but the class-based, cooperative gameplay stands. Just check out these screenshots and see for yourself.
Today was originally slated to be the official unveiling of the game's latest trailer, and even had a countdown site dedicated to it. Unfortunately, CEO of Insomniac Ted Price had to break the bad news:
"We had an awesome trailer planned and finished. Unfortunately a last-minute legal-rights issue has prevented us from releasing the trailer as planned. EA is trying to obtain the necessary approvals and we hope to bring the trailer to you soon. After discussing internally, we wanted to stop the countdown and explain what happened."
Fuse features four different characters, each with their own respective skills and abilities. Expect to see the usual suspects: the sniper, the cloaker, the engineer and the soldier. If you don't like the character you're playing, switch over to one you prefer. This means, apparently, that Fuse can be played single-player with AI controlled teammates.
"We understand that a large portion of players are interested in that single-player experience. A lot of us gamers are interested in both. I love single-player games but I also love multiplayer games, and I think that Fuse offers you the opportunity to do both without having to skimp on either side."
Expect Fuse in March of 2013 for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
