Watch 18-Minutes of Fuse with Ted Price

Fuse, previously titled Overstrike, is Insomniac Games’ upcoming shooter that puts a wild spin on combat. It’s an Army of Two-esque game that puts you in control of one of four different mercenaries from Overstrike 9 with a goal of retrieving an alien artifact from an underground facility. Grasping alien-enhanced weaponry that’s very foreign to the world, this video shows off who each of the characters are and what kind of abilities they’ve obtained.

While I still prefer the old name, this eighteen-minute long preview has caught our attention; with solid presentation values, charismatic characters and an arsenal that seems straight out of Ratchet & Clank, this could quite possibly lead to one of the most enjoyable cooperative experiences in the last while. We’ll have to see when the game ships in March of 2013 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
