Curiosity — What's Inside the Cube? from 22 Cans came to an end over the weekend. We spent some time with MachineGames' Wolfenstein: The New Order and Tango Gameworks' The Evil Within. Wargaming will unveil its first console game at E3. We reviewed Insomniac Games' Fuse and decided it's not the kind of shooter you should play solo. We've got a bit more information on the Xbox One and its relationship with the internet.

A character trailer for Insomniac's co-op shooter Fuse gives a short overview of the four members of the Overstrike 9 team and their past missions. The characters' backstories are related by a narrator as the camera pans over parts of a static image; each character has a comic panel illustrating their story. Dalton Brooks is shown returning fire against an attempted assassin sent by mercenary group Raven, Jacob Kimball draws his weapons on gangsters in a nightclub, and Naya Deveraux finds she can't assassinate a young girl. Fuse releases on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 28. The game's launch trailer is embedded below.

The latest trailer for Insomniac Games' Fuse tells the story from the perspective of the game's four protagonists, all of whom are playable in the game's demo, which is now available on Xbox Live and will be released on PlayStation Network later today. The team, known as Overstrike 9, has to hunt down Raven, a rogue paramilitary corporation, and prevent Raven from using the Fuse technology to take over the world. You can check out some gameplay from the middle of the game in the Fuse demo, which supports both online and split-screen co-op. Fuse launches May 28 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For more on Insomniac's philosophies behind the development of Fuse, check out our recent interview with studio head Ted Price.

The latest trailer for Insomniac Games' cooperative shooter, Fuse, reveals what each leader of nefarious military corporation Raven has in store for the game's titular alien substance. Senator Fable, Raven's all-round bad guy, acknowledges the only thing standing in the way of the group are the game's four protagonists: snarky former mercenary, Dalton Brooks; assassin Naya Deveraux, whose father is a major component of the game's plot; ruthless scientist Isabelle Sinclair; and former police detective Jacob Kimble. Fuse is set to launch on May 28 in North America and May 31 in Europe for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For more information, be sure to read our preview of Fuse where we look at the game's bizarre weapons, character-based gadgets and multiplayer modes.

EA has released a quartet of new trailers for Insomniac's upcoming squad-based cooperative shooter Fuse. Each centers on an individual member of the Overstrike 9 special forces team, introducing audiences to their backstory and unique abilities. Above, we get a look at team leader Dalton Brooks, a cynical and dryly-snarking former mercenary whose special ability lets a player project a fixed energy field, shielding teammates from enemy fire. The three videos below serve as an introduction to the rest of the team. Naya Deveraux is Overstrike 9's stealthy assassin, whose personal cloaking device enables her to sneak around a battlefield undetected, and whose gun seems to shoot miniature black holes. Naya's family issues rear their heads as her father — who trained her in her youth to be...

Earlier this week, Insomniac Games founder Ted Price showed off the game, highlighting the four character's secondary abilities and leaping. After playing through a small section of the game's campaign, we moved to the Echelon multiplayer mode. In Echelon, players need to survive 12 waves of enemies. Each wave includes one of six objectives. The objectives and the way the enemies approach a level will be randomized when the game comes out, Price said. Playing with one other person in the mode, left two of the game's characters controlled by AI. It also meant that I was able to test out leaping. Pressing the back button pops up a small window that shows you which characters are AI controlled and what button to press to switch to them. A tap of the button pinches your view of the world...

Fuse's latest trailer features Dalton, one of the gun-toting quartet of protagonists, sharing a bit of his wisdom on how to get through mercenary missions in one piece. The trailer shows off a bit of the teamwork mechanics that players will have to use in tandem to take down the game's bigger foes, as well as some of the protagonists' devil-may-care attitudes. Shoot a senator being used as a human shield by your target? "Why not," Dalton tells his team. "I didn't vote for him." Fuse launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in March 2013.
