Next Tuesday, a digital demo of EA and Insomniac’s Fuse will go live on XBLA and PSN, so you should download it and see what you think. A brief aside: when a publisher decides to release a demo, that’s generally a pretty solid sign of confidence that the game won’t be a steaming pile. So that’s good news!
Even cooler is that the demo will allow up to four players to jump in together in some cooperative multiplayer. While that may not be super revolutionary, it’s great that we’ll get the chance to actually sample what it’s like to play the game as it’s meant to be played, rather than having to settle for a gimped version of the final product. There’s also some 2-player split-screen available if you’re into the local co-op kinda thing.
I’m into it. Gotta figure out which of my pals are interested in trying the demo so I can figure out which platform to try out. And if you like it, the game drops on May 28 in North America, with a May 31 release date in Europe.
