The Frontline is advancing on Xbox 360 as the new multiplayer demo from THQ and Kaos Studios and pushes the boundaries as the first demo to appear on Xbox Live offering 32 player online support.
In the first map of this exciting new demo of Frontlines: Fuel of war, players find themselves battling to the death in Northern Turkmenistan over a strategic oilfield. With vast expanses of open space to cover, players need to utilise available vehicles such as tanks, armoured cars and attack helicopters to crush all resistance and push the frontline forward. If intense vehicle combat is your thing, then you are in for a real treat.
For fans of more intense up close and personal combat this demo also features a second map. Gone are the wide open fields and devastating vehicles, as players get down and dirty on the streets of war torn Moscow in a bout of frantic guerilla warfare. The key to survival on this map is to effectively use of your weapon loadouts and class abilities to suppress and control the enemy's movements.
Frontlines: Fuel of War is the new first person shooter from THQ and asks the player "What will happen if our oil reserves were about to run out?".
As mankind is starved of one of its most vital resources, two super powers face off over the last remaining oil reserves in intense futuristic warfare. Starting on the oil fields of central Asia, Frontlines: Fuel of war takes players across the globe and right into the heart of Moscow itself.
Players will be able to take the war to their enemy using everything from guided smart bombs and remote control combat drones to the trusty assault rifle. The unique Frontline mechanic in this game ensures that the gameplay remains intense and fast-paced at all times as well as giving players the freedom to fully explore the vast gaming landscapes.
Can you step up and take the challenge or will you run away and hide when the Multiplayer demo of Frontlines: Fuel of War launches exclusively on Xbox Live today?
