For their first non-Playstation exclusive release since forming in 1994, Insomniac Games are teaming up with Electronic Arts to release Fuse, a cooperative action game headed to store shelves from the end of this month. With the games launch drawing closer, the companies have confirmed that a demo version of the game will be available on both the Playstation Network and XBox Live stores from the 8th May. This demo will allow you to sample the cooperative online multiplayer with up to four players or via a 2-player split screen.
In the demo, players will 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 organization, Raven. Each of the characters delivers a unique gameplay experience, as they have their own individual and unique “Xenotech” weapon and specialized skills. Players will 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. 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. And by the way, all of these features rock for solo players as well. Join us in this brand new universe for a quintessential Insomniac Games experience.
