The operatives include Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble and Naya Deveraux. During game players will attempt to protect the Earth from an alien energy source called Fuse. The energy source was stolen by a paramilitary organization called Raven.

Each of the characters players can take control of has their own unique weapon and specialized skills. The game will launch at the same time for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. While much of the game is centered on cooperative play, there will be single player aspects so gamers can play alone if they want.
