1.69GB Frontlines demo hits Live

Fire bullets "on the frontlines of tomorrow" in THQ's Battlefield beater

An Xbox 360 demo of THQ's forthcoming first-person shooter Frontlines: Fuel of War, is now available to download from Xbox Live.

Frontlines: Fuel of War is described as "an open-world First Person Shooter set on the frontlines of tomorrow. In a world ravaged by a global energy crisis, environmental decay, and economic depression, players assume the role of an elite soldier in the Western Coalition Army on an epic crusade against the Red Star Alliance to control the last of the world's oil reserves."

EA's Battlefield 2 is good - huge open worlds, 32 players, vehicles, a range of weapons and checkpoint capturing fun. But how would you like a war game that's even deeper, more open and includes one of the most unique team-based scenarios since CTF?

That's what Frontlines: Fuel of War aims to be. 'Depth' and 'choice' are the two key words Kaos General Manager, Frank Delise, uttered when we asked him to sum up Frontlines.

You can read more about the game in our recent preview.

Plus: We've teamed up with THQ to give away keys to the Frontlines beta on PC.

Set your waypoints for Wednesday 19th December at 8.00 GMT when we'll be giving away the game code for download, plus a whole bunch of the beta keys you'll need to activate it.
