Motion Comic Introduces The Overstrike 9 Team

Insomniac Games, EA, and Radical Entertainment have teamed up to introduce players to the cast of Fuse. While known for Spyro and the Ratchet & Clank series, the studio is no stranger to more mature subject matter.

Fuse, which has undergone a shift in direction since it was first announced at E3 2011, retains its team of four Overstrike 9 members. In this new motion comic, players will get the chance to learn a bit about Dalton, Izzy, Jacob, and Naya.

Fuse, which is Insomniac's first multiplatform project, is slated for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 28, 2013.

  • I forgot about this game, its nice to know it's still around.

  • I was more interested when this was Overstrike and looked like it was going to be a co-op action shooter with a sense of humor (more like Borderlands or Ratchet & Clank). Every time I see more about Fuse it seems to be taking itself more and more seriously. That lowers my interest. But, Insomniac is awesome, generally, so I'm on the fence until reviews come in.
  • Are they marketing it? I don't watch TV and have adblock on most sites. As far as I know, not that many people know about this game.
  • I had never heard of this title but when I saw it in the last Game Informer issue I went and pre-ordered it. Going to go pick it up soon and I am really excited to try it out.

  • "Motion comic," another way of saying "we didn't have the budget to get real animation."

  • This being an EA game, I'm not at all excited about this game. Not that it will be "horrible", but that EA will over-market it, and create false hopes so much that it will probably fail.

  • This... just sounds more and more like crap every step of the way.

  • I'm excited for this game!

  • I saw this game at comic con and was intrigued by the way you control the entire team by character rotation like in Dragon Age while playing solo or allow drop in players for co op. So it's kind of like if you took the A-team, dropped a person and merged it with borderlands and threw in some ridiculous weapon mechanics on par with ratchet and clank. An odd mix of course, but it looked fun.
  • When I first read about this game, my mind jumped to Bulletstorm. It sounded like it would have a humorous tone to it with some underlying seriousness to it too.

  • Cool, I guess.

  • Zzzzzzz.  Im a little upset that they played safe and stepped away from the more colorful target renders and humor from the reveal trailer.  Now it just looks like yet another gritty and gray shooter with "hardknock" soldiers.

  • looks like an interesting game
