EA’s international plans are ever in effect, as their recent dealings with Insomniac Games indicate. As it would seem, this alliance has seen fit to actually pay-off sooner rather than later, as the publisher-developer combo intend to release upcoming third-person shooter Fuse worldwide in May.
Fuse, for those not in the know, is Insomniac’s latest project, a co-op oriented shooter in the basic vein of Borderlands but with the cover mechanics and “refined” combat of any post-Gears of War title. Few details about the game are readily available, save for the promise of weapons akin to those of Insomniac’s other franchises, certain mechanics like the ability to switch between squadmates mid-battle, and an action-oriented science-fiction tale focused on the typical “fate of humanity rests on elite team with advanced alien tech” plot thread.
It’s also worth noting that this marks Insomniac Games’s first foray into multi-platform development, a fact which – combined with the aforementioned range of weapons – seems to impress Insomniac’s CEO, Ted Price. Price stated that the company “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.”
Fuse will make its way to PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 28th in North America, then on May 31st for Europe.
