FUSE finally gets a release date
FUSE sure has been on a long a winding development road. Changes in style, title, and release date have plagued the game. But now, at long last, we know for sure when the game will be showing up in stores. Read on for the details.
In a press release that was rolled out yesterday, EA announced that FUSE will be released on May 28th in North America, and May 31st in Europe. Amongst the predictably enthusiastic verbiage of the press release is this quote from the founder and CEO of Insomniac Games, Ted Price.
“Insomniac Games is known for delivering best-in-class weaponry that breaks the mold of traditional video games, and Fuse is no different. These Xenotech weapons further the innovation players will find in this unique, action co-op shooter. We can’t wait to bring Fuse, our first multi-platform game, to gamers worldwide this May.”
It’s nice to see him so excited for his game, isn’t it? Seriously though, we’ve been pretty excited about FUSE for awhile now, and it’s not only because it features the talent of multiple voice actors from Mass Effect. Sure, it’s a reason. A big reason. But it’s not the only reason, OK?
The press release also re-confirmed the pre-order bonuses we reported on here months ago, but once again didn’t name the specific outlets that would be offering them. Instead, EA stuck with the meaningless corporate term of “select retailers.” I think it’s same to assume that the usual suspects of Gamestop, Best Buy, and EB Games will be involved. But as always, call ahead to make sure.
