Tuesday 10th February/...Showcasing FUEL ’s all-action racing and introducing an astonishing game world that covers over 5,000 square miles (14,400+km) of dramatic and diverse terrain, Codemasters® today revealed the first FUEL gameplay video, now available to view and download from www.fuel-game.com.
Coming this May, FUEL ’s immense landscape will deliver the world’s largest racing environment, featuring more than 100,000 miles (161,000+km) of tarmac, tracks and trails. The video begins by exploring the stunning scale and diversity of FUEL’s landscapes before bikes, quads, roadsters and more go head-to-head in a series of breakneck races.
From the snow-capped mountains of Mount Rainier to the salt-plains of Utah and the Grand Canyon, FUEL ’s unique environment, mapped using satellite data, is set to create the ultimate racing sandbox. Players will be able to take any route they choose at any time, on and off-road, across a game world that demands to be raced and explored.
Set in an alternate present, where the accelerated effects of global warming have wreaked destruction across huge swathes of America, a new breed of thrill-seeking racers have taken these dangerous, abandoned areas for their own and now explore and compete against each other, and the elements, in multi-vehicle events. A full day/night cycle and dynamic weather system that includes tornados, lightning strikes, blizzards, thunderstorms and sandstorms, will deliver a unique racing experience as players battle the elements in real-time.
Complete with free roam and a multitude of online multiplayer challenges, FUEL is set to revolutionise open world multi-terrain racing when it launches this May for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® and Games For Windows® LIVE.
