Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) and Insomniac Games have announced the release of an action-packed demo for the co-op shooter, Fuse.
The fast-paced demo will be available on Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network on May 7, allowing players to play online cooperatively with up to four players, or in 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.
Developed by the independent studio, Insomniac Games, Fuse will mark the company’s first multiplatform release when it becomes available for PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system on May 28 in North America and May 31 in Europe.
