Fuse doesn't have micro-transactions or an online pass, developer Insomniac Games has confirmed.
In a new FAQ published on the Insomniac website, the developer asked itself, "Online pass?"
"Nope," it answered. "But, you should still buy it new to support us because there are no micro-transactions to make up for it, though. :D"
EA came under fire recently for the inclusion of micro-transactions in Dead Space 3, but Fuse, a co-op shooter for up to four players, is published by EA under the EA Partners label - EA's division that releases games made by companies it doesn't own.
Previous EA Partners games include 38 Studios' Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Valve's Portal 2 and Crytek's Crysis 3.
Meanwhile, Insomniac confirmed a demo of Fuse will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 "closer to release". The game is due out at the end of May.
