EA and Insomniac have today officially announced Fuse, the story-driven, all-action 4-player co-op shooter formerly known as Overstrike, with a batch of fresh screenshots showing the game's elite, covert agents Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble and Naya Deveraux in action.

Brought together to fight a deadly alien energy source known as 'Fuse', the foursome have access to all manner of weird and wonderful technology powered by the eponymous volatile substance that will help them save mankind. Using Fuse's funky LEAP feature, you'll be able to switch between any of the four characters during combat, utilising their unique skills and weaponry.

“Fuse demonstrates what Insomniac does best: outlandish and gruesome weapons design, over-the-top action and a touch of humour,” said Insomniac Games’ Founder and CEO, Ted Price. “We’re especially excited to see how players utilise lethal teamwork by combining their Fuse weapons to stop a deadly arms race.”

You'll be able to play Fuse online and offline, levelling up your characters between modes with a unified game progression system. As you level up, you'll earn Fuse points and gain access to more powerful Fuse-driven abilities and experimental Fuse-powered weapons, making your team a force to be reckoned with.

Fuse will be releasing in March 2013. Check out all seven new screenshots below. There was supposed to be a debut trailer too, but that's sadly been delayed according to Insomniac's Ted Price. We'll have it for you as soon as it surfaces.

Pretty drastic change in art design.
I guess they wanted to differentiate themselves from Borderlands.
Which is funny, since Borderlands was supposed to have a realistic look at first.

@2 And I believe Borderlands had its art style changed to differ from Rage. At least there's seemingly some form of respect between studios. Some of them anyway, Capcom made no bones about ripping off Twisted Pixel, but I digress.

It's nice to have another AAA studio on board, and I love me some co-op, so I'll be keeping an eye on this.

This looks a lot like Borderlands 2, from the characters to the enemies, they're even robots!

@3 Right, because EA is the publisher, it will be like another game they've published. I'm guessing you havent played an Insomniac game before.

It went from being colorful and bold to grey and boring. At least in terms of visuals.

So this is just remade Resistance? No offense, but I preferred monsters in Reistance. Not so aweome on story, but gameplay was amazing. Seems like this will be same thing, looking differently due to copyrights with Sony...

@9 I thought Resistance was incredibly dull to play. It looked great but that's about it. So in that respect, I hope this ISN'T a rebranded Resistance game.

I've loved Insomniac's work since Ratchet & Clank. I've been keeping an eye on this since the Overstike trailer. It soundss like their take on Borderlands.

Not crazy about the name change but the game looks great. For those in the U.S.the GTTV episode Thurs night/Fri morning @ 1 am on SpikeTV will show the 1st footage. This is probably an exclusive & why the trailer was delayed.

I thought Resistance was horrible, Ratchet and Clank games on the other hand are awesome.Looking forward to seeing how this game is.

Looks like Binary Domain with the co-op aspect I was expecting from that game. Hopefully it plays a lot smoother ala Mass Effect/Gears/VANQUISH too.

Oh and of course one of the females had to have red hair -_-

The screenshots look pretty good but I won't bother just because it's EA. I know it might sound harsh but everyone knows that everything EA related is just garbage.

Looks like just another shooter. At least the Overstrike reveal was a lot more interesting.
