- If you are into off-road racing, a free FUEL demo is set for release later today at 2pm for PSN, Xbox Live and PC with the trailer available below.
The FUEL demo enables players to take on the Ocean Rush career event, where seven racers pick their own paths through treacherous landscapes and short-cuts are key to taking the chequered flag.
Press Release: Experience the ground-breaking open-world racer from Asobo Studio as Codemasters announced that the FUEL playable demo will be available today from Xbox LIVE! Marketplace for the Xbox 360, the PlayStation Store in Europe for the PLAYSTATION 3 with links to the PC demo available on www.fuel-game.com from 2pm GMT.
Gamers can also take on Blitz - a wild, high-pressure challenge where players must race against the clock to reach the next checkpoint before time runs out.
Gamers who download the console versions can also play online for a limited period of two weeks from release, experiencing up to sixteen player free ride in a limited area of the Tsunami Reef zone or challenging up to six other players in the Ocean Rush career race.
Celebrating the demo's arrival, a new video showcases the wheel-to-wheel racing, open landscapes, diverse vehicles and dramatic weather which up to 16 players can enjoy in FUEL's stunning game world. The video is available from www.fuel-game.com.
Recognised by Guinness World Records as having 'The Largest Playable Area in a Console Game', FUEL features a huge 5,560 square miles playground which is fully open to race and explore.
Based on satellite data from the United States, wildly diverse terrain from the snow-capped Mount Rainier to the arid Grand Canyon and everything in between creates an atmospheric, epic racing sandbox.
