Insomniac released a first sneak peak video from their upcoming project Fuse that shows the beginning of the game.
Why does that picture remind me of Killzone?

The trailer sets a pretty serious tone, which is a contrast to Overstrike's more comical reveal back in 2011. The characters also seem to have lost their exaggerated looks in favor of standard military flair.
Bit of a shame really. I liked the Pixar/Team Fortress style they were going for when it was Overstrike.
does anyone know why they changed the name and tone of the game?
My guess is sales.
Insomniac - "Let's do this fun, quirky, and comedic sort of military game with a cartoony artstyle and over the top weapons!" EA - "LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL , DON'T YOU RETARDS KNOW ANYTHING!?!?!?! Generic military games with absolutely NO PERSONALITY is where it's at! You mofos signed a contract remember? MAKE IT HAPPEN! Insomniac - * http://cl.jroo.me/z3/U/a/x/...
comparison from old trailer: http://i.imgur.com/TX5wy.jp... looks like they changed for generic game... and lol http://i.minus.com/ibyg4TPC...
I like the look of the original so much more.
As usual a "first look" which really isn't.
What have they done...this feels like it's going to be another third person generic shooter I liked the tone they set back in 2011, it seemed like something Insomniac would make. It seemed like a game which wouldn't take it's self too seriously and have some likable funny characters. This...well we'll have to see some gameplay first though to judge it better. For now though....bring back Overstrike
But when did they ever suggest comedic gameplay? All that was really shown was a snarky team leader and his team who had special abilities.
The fact that the over all theme of the original trailer was snarky and comedic in delivery of punch lines time with certain visuals and Team Fortress character styled units really implied a more funny take on 3rd person shooter.
I been excited for Overstrike since last year's trailer but the name change and talk of reworking the game has me worried.
It's going to flop.
oH MAW GAWD NOOOOO EA sucks
Man, tha looks extremely generic, you telling me, that they scrap that comic feel? I am really really dissapointed : ((
Annddd Insomniac makes their first multiplatform game, a generic third person shooter. I knew them splitting from Sony was a bad idea.
I'd like to see it, and play it before I judge it. Sept 12, 2012 should prove very interesting in terms of reveals, iPhone 5 reveal and this. Can't wait.
Insomniac is a talented group of individuals and they make great games. Stop whining...
Looks like Insomniac are starting to lose the plot here. A few years from now, I don't think they'll survive very long as an independent game developer.
So how much of a say do you guys think EA had in the change of the tone of the game? It sucks because when it was overstrike it looked like it was gong to be a fun comedic TPS with characters that had similar personalities to the TF2 characters. Since its Insomniac Games I'm not worried about the game because regardless it will be great. Hopefully they can use the earlier concept of Overstrike to make a similar IP for Sony once they are done with this multiplatform game
Why just for Sony you freakin moron
If it wasn't for Sony Insomniac Games would be nowhere in the gaming Industry like they are now. Yea because going multiplatform has really helped them out. They had to switch the tone of this game because EA said so Sony would let them use the original idea like they have done for their previous IP's. That is why Sony is easily the best publisher since they actually care about the quality of their products and original ideas. Insomniac has probably realized they have made a mistake going multiplatform and are going to come crawling back to Sony. So you're the moron because one you obviously had no idea the great relationship those two had and you have no idea that this game will suffer in quality because it multiplatform instead of being from the ground up. Insomniac is already doing projects exclusively with Sony like that new ratchet and clank game for psn that will probably be better than this EA published generic piece of shit!!! So go fuck off you one bubble retard!!!
So Overstrike did die? WTF is Fuse? Meh...whatever. At least they didn't release Overstrike, THEN make the generic switch. This could have been in their generic plans all along. At least the guns will be sweet...unless they stick with the usual modern warcrap weapons...Scar/Famas/bleh
The mission briefing looks almost exactly the same as Modern Warfare's. I sense that EA was responsible for changing Overstrike into what it is now. I miss the days where publishers took risks and developers had a decent amount of creative freedom. Publishers: "Let's saturate the market with clones of the highest selling titles! They should sure sell then! There's no market for original and compelling high quality experiences!" Idiots...
This is making me sad... I was really looking forward to Overstrike, but Fuse looks downright generic. The humor seems to be gone, and I hate the redesign of the characters. At this rate, I reFUSE to buy the game.
