Latest Fuse trailer just makes me miss Overstrike more

Fuse_Raven_Base_Maelstrom Fuse is an upcoming 4-player coop third-person action game being developed by Insomniac Games (Resistance, Ratchet and Clank). If you remember EA's 2011 press conference, this title was first revealed under the name Overstrike, but was sadly changed, and now we see a matured and a more military-like version of the game.

Now after seeing that trailer, you might think, "oh ok cool, a coop game". But if you saw what the game was when it was called Overstrike, your reaction to the trailer might be a bit different. check it out below.

Overstrike E3 2011 trailer

I'm not too sure what to say about the change in this new IP. The personality and style was completely scrapped, and with it now rebranded as Fuse, the once interesting concept has been replaced with a  more serious tone that I believe has been done too many times in shooters. If I had to pick only one game to be developed over Insomniac, it would be Overstrike in a heart beat.


Fuse is set for an early 2013 release for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
