The lights are on
Fuse was already announced as Overstrike last year and was recently teased at PAX, but today developer Insomniac officially announced the title and revealed some new screens for the game.
Fuse is based around the 4-player co-op of the Overstrike 9 team. The special forces unit is called in by the CIA to stop a group known as Raven from stealing a powerful alien energy called Fuse which powers the game's weapons.
Players can combine their weapons and abilities for maximum firepower (you can also switch between party members at will in single-player), and upgrade them by earning and spending Fuse points.
For more on the game, take a look at this teaser talking about the game's characters.
Fuse is scheduled to come out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in March.

The weapons, especially the shield thing, look to be heavily influenced by their work on the Resistance games.
Show me some gameplay. The concept seems pretty cliche, but that may just be part of EA's influence.
I hate it when other news gets in the way of Borderlands 2.
Seems plain, especially for Insomniac.
Looks cool, I like Insomniac, although the colors do give it a more generic feel... I don't mind a realistic look, so as long as it plays well, I'll pick it up.
I think it's great how shooters continue to try to be rpgs, However I'm sure this will be mediocare.
Looks preety cool.
This looks pretty god damn fun...
