Set to revolutionise multi-terrain racing with the largest environment ever created in race gaming, FUEL will present players with an astonishing no-boundaries playfield that's over 5,000 square miles (14,000+ km²) in size. Creating the ultimate competitive go-anywhere racing experience, FUEL will have players competing across wildly different terrain and executing spectacular death-defying stunts as they race dozens of varied two and four-wheeled rides and explore this epic world on an unprecedented scale. FUEL is set in an alternate present in which whole swathes of the globe have been ravaged by the effects of climate change brought on by decades of environmental abuse. Here oil prices have rocketed and yet a new breed of racing junkie takes to the wastelands, pitting their grungy home-tuned vehicles against each other in an all-new extreme sport as they compete to win fuel supplies. To triumph means travelling the wastelands to challenge the best; from the tsunami-wrecked pacific coast through the Nevada wastelands, including the Grand Canyon, up treacherous snow-capped mountains, thick forests, arid deserts, abandoned lakeside resorts and much more. Bringing this vast, open ended landscape to life is a dynamic weather system with full day and night transitions, brilliant sunshine, torrential rain and everything in between, plus destructive tornados, sandstorms, thunderstorms, lightning strikes, and blizzards requiring mid-race strategy changes. Complete with the ability to go online to explore this massive world and compete in hundreds of multiplayer challenges.
|In FUEL players race across and explore the world’s largest racing environment – over 5,000 square miles of spectacular wilderness. Set to revolutionize multi-terrain, multi-vehicle racing, FUEL is a fiercely competitive, open-world game without boundaries. On and off-road, two and four-wheeled vehicles race a massively diverse environment, from scaling the highest snowcapped mountain to racing the deepest arid canyon. |

Smoking road racing.
In an alternate present, vast stretches of America have become no-go areas as the devastating effects of global warming ravage the continent. Floods, storms, brush fires, tornadoes and hurricanes have driven people from towns and cities into safe zones as extreme weather wreaks havoc, creating thousands of square miles of dangerous uninhabitable areas. People turn to renewable energy in the face of the destruction caused by this catastrophe. But these danger zones have also become a playground for a new breed of racer. With a stockpile of fuel to be burned, adrenaline junkies head into the wilderness to compete against each other in spectacular races against themselves and the elements. Vehicles
FUEL features 70 different unlockable vehicles designed to support pick up and play arcade style fun. Each of these feature aggressive styling, unique performance and surface specific handling and can compete with each other no matter how or where they are united. The six different vehicle classes include:
| ||Bikes |
Bikes are fast, quick and easy to handle, but what they have in speed they lack in durability, so ride around trees, not into them.
| ||ATVs |
ATV's four wheels offer more stability than bikes and their size allows them to be able to sneak in very narrow spaces.
| ||Muscle Cars |
Muscle cars have enough speed and strength to face extreme conditions, making them a good choice for any kind of racer.
| ||SUVs |
Powerful, stout and durable, SUVs make up for their lack of speed with all the hit that they can take before breaking down.
| ||Buggies |
The smallest of cars and the easiest to handle, buggies are definitely fast, but durability can be an issue with them.
| ||Trucks |
The largest and strongest vehicles, trucks will not daze you with speed, but they'll knock you out for sure with power.
Race Types and Challenges
FUEL features a wealth of race types and challenges. Races include A2B Time Trials, Checkpoint Races, Circuit Races and Raid Races; while some of the additional challenges include 'Long Raids'--races that can last for hours--and 'Knock Out' events, which are checkpoint races where the last racer to cross the line is eliminated. Never Get Lost With GPs
Each vehicle in the game comes equipped with a unique GPs system. Showing up on the game screen's heads-up display (HUD), arrows display a route that will take advantage of the distinctive capabilities of that vehicle, always indicating that fastest, most appropriate route. Race well and players are alerted to an extra route--one that is riskier, more hazardous--but potentially quicker. Of course, you can always choose to switch the GPs off and forge your own way through the wilderness. Key Features
