Your Burning Fuse Questions Answered


In response to fan questions posed during a recent livestream demo, Insomniac Games has published an FAQ to answer common queries about upcoming co-op shooter Fuse.

The FAQ tells us that the game was built from the ground up for cooperative play, but is fully enjoyable for lone players thanks to helpful AI teammate bots and a LEAP mechanic that allows one gamer to seamlessly swap between the four playable characters. Specifically for co-op, Fuse will allow up to four players to game together online or two players locally in split-screen, with the option to have two other online players join the split-screeners along with support for drop-in/drop-out functionality.

Insomniac also says that the game will not require an online pass, nor will it beg for extra dollars through microtransactions. In addition to the campaign, a wave-based Echelon mode will be available with a total of six maps. A demo will be released on both consoles closer to the recently confirmed May 28 launch date.

And to those who continue to ask why Insomniac won’t make a new Spyro game, it’s because the loveable purple dragon has no hands. So stop asking already. (Of course the real answer is the fact that Activision owns the franchise rights to Spyro.)
