Xbox 360 and PC finally versions launch
After several delays, the highly anticipated Frontlines: Fuel of War hit retail shelves for both the Xbox 360 and PC platforms. This FPS title, which was developed by Kaos Studios, features many of the same developers that worked on the original Desert Combat mod for Battlefield. The development of the game has been closely watched by Battlefield fans.
While the game itself was developed primarily for the Xbox 360 platform, it has been enhanced and back ported to the PC platform, as well. The game is powered by the Unreal Engine and features an experience that it unique for FPS and Battlefield fans alike.
While the initial reviews of the title have been mixed on both the Xbox 360 and PC during the long Beta process, many are hopeful that the released product will show more potential in the end. The 50 player matches on the Xbox 360 side and the 64 player matches on the PC side should alone generate interest for those that like large scale FPS combat in large engaging environments.
A downloadable demo for both the Xbox 360 and PC versions of FFOW is expected to be released in the next week or ten days. FFOW is being distributed and marketed by THQ and will retail for US$59.99 for the Xbox 360 and US$49.99 for the PC version. It is available at most retailers now and the PC version will be available through electronic distribution download shortly.
