The lights are on
Insomniac Games released the final North American box art for Fuse. Hope you like the color orange. The co-op shooter still doesn't have an exact release date just yet. EA says it's schedule to ship this coming spring for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Underneath you'll find the original cover for the game when it was called Overstrike.
What do you think of the cover? Sound off in the comments below.
The box art could be way better, but at least it looks better than the Overstrike one.
I still can't believe that almost the whole game changed. It most likely will just end up being another brown and bloom shooter.
Mehhh. I really, really like Insomniac and all of their work, but I gotta say it sounds like they lost a lot of their charm and creativity when they made the changes to Overstrike. I don't wanna say it looks like it'll be a bad attempt at getting in on the shooter market, but that cover looks a lot like every FPS cover on the market right now.
The only thing I could think of when I saw where they cropped it was "male gaze". I can imagine how the pitch for it would have worked.
"We need to make sure they see the important part; make sure everyone's standing in such a way so that the player can see there are both boobs and guns in this game. We want to be gritty, so use some dirty textures, and maybe obscure everything with some unnecessary lens flair."
I can't really knock them too hard because box art in GENERAL is uninspired. This isn't a particularly big offense in comparison. I'm just getting kind of fatigued of this style is all.
I dont really like this cover
Your cover art is now Battlefield 3!
I miss Overstrike
I much prefer the new cover to the old, just hope here in the UK it is given a cover that resembles this somewhat.
"The characters aren't important" is what I'm getting from this..
it's different and original which is good from a marketing standpoint so I approve.
It's certainly an interesting choice. I thought they were going for some character-driven storytelling, which makes the decision to cut off the character's faces an odd one. It's cool in its own way, I suppose.
I don't know what it is with that color orange, but enough people must like it...
are you asking me if the faces cut off looks good? huh? weird question
I liked the old cover and was kinda digging the original direction to. Insomniac already has one serious franchise in Resistance. I like them better when they do stuff like Ratchet and Clank and that kind of oddball humorous approach.
That new cover is BOSS
EA sure do like their orange box art.
They EA'd it. Fantastic. Why set yourself apart when you can be like everybody else?!
I like the new one a lot better.
Admittedly the new box art echoes the vibe of Battlefield, but that original cover just screams bargain bin.
