From what Ted Price shows off in this video, Insomniac Games has been hard at work on Fuse. They give some background on the four main characters – Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble, and Naya Deveraux – as well as go into detail about the primary and secondary functions of their main weapons.
If you can last through the whole 18 minutes, you’ll get a lot of in-depth information on the progress, including information about the skill trees, an interesting concept called “Lethal Teamwork” in which you can build up points off of your teammates, and “Leap,” which allows you to switch which character you’re playing at any time – even mid-battle.
But there’s more to Fuse than just a pretty face. Price said the campaign is “heavily story driven with plenty of twists and turns to keep our players engaged.” This sounds awesome, but I’m still put off a bit by the massive change in art style that occurred with the game. I’m hoping the story is as compelling as some others Insomniac has put out.
Fuse is scheduled to be released in March 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
