The fourth trailer for October 2013 title Fuse takes notes from muscled mercenary leader Dalton and his rules of engagement -- maxims which boil down to the deployment of bullets, explosions, and quick-witted quips.
Fuse, announced for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 machines, features drop-in, drop-out cooperative gaming for up to four players (and AI control for any unallocated characters), as Dalton's team goes off-the-record to stop a rival group from snatching the titular alien tech.
It'll be the first game from developer Insomniac that's on Xbox 360 as well as PlayStation 3, and the first in over 10 years to be set outside of the Resistance and Ratchet and Clank series.
As a multiplayer action game taking place from a third-person perspective, Fuse will be arriving during the same year as Gears of War: Judgement on the 360, The Last of Us on PlayStation 3, and Grand Theft Auto V on both platforms -- a good year for fans of those gameplay elements.
