Insomniac Games’ next project is Fuse, formerly known as Overstrike. It is an upcoming, four-player cooperative action video game and their first on multiple platforms.
When a volatile alien energy source called Fuse falls into the wrong hands, the CIA calls in an elite contact team to retrieve it: Overstrike 9. Join up to three friends in co-op play as you deploy lethal teamwork and Fuse-powered weapons to take down the rogue paramilitary corporation behind the theft.
Ted Price (Founder - Insomniac Games) had mentioned on his keynote speech at PAX, that a countdown on the new website would begin and that ended today.
That brought along some some new screenshots and new details about the game.
Unfortunately due to some last minute legal issues, they were unable bring out a new trailer for it. EA is currently looking to obtain the necessary approvals and bring it out as soon as they can. One wonders if this is due in part to any music in the trailer?
During my keynote speech at PAX, I revealed the first screenshot from Fuse, our new game, with a link to this website. If you visited the site, you found a countdown clock that was scheduled to end at 6 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on September 12th.
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.
In the interim, we’re proceeding with our other plans for the reveal. The new Fuse section of our website will be up with information and screenshots when the countdown was scheduled to end. Additionally, top-tier press from around the world will be publishing previews of the game including hands-on impressions. Then, on September 13th at 10 p.m. PDT, Gametrailers TV with Geoff Keighley will bring you a Fuse dedicated episode with the first raw gameplay footage.
That aside lets dig in to the new screenshots.
