The third instalment in Electronic Arts’ biographies for the playable characters in the forthcoming Fuse turns attentions to Jacob Kimble, an ex-cop with a grudge. Kimble is one of four playable characters set to feature in the videogame, set for release later this month.
Currently wrapping up development at Insomniac Games, Fuse will be made available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from 31st May 2013. Below follows the official biography, as presented by Electronic Arts, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Fuse.
Jacob Kimble is a former LAPD homicide detective whose idea of justice firmly sits in a moral grey area. Now he operates as the team’s long-range marksman and trap expert. Jacob Kimble is no stranger to violence and covert operations, he joined Overstrike 9 because he detested the bureaucratic nature of traditional law enforcement.
Armed with his Arcshot, Jacob can systematically pick apart enemies from a distance or create chaos by setting fiery traps of molten mercury. His Archsot fires high-velocity bolts armed with Fuse-augmented mercury.
The Arcshot is scoped to allow for long-range precision. Once bolts are released they can be charged to emit a fiery burst that liquifies enemies. Because of this, bolts can also be used to set traps on groups of enemies.
