Codemasters ‘FUEL’ the new open world racer is powered by cutting-edge technology and, using satellite data, features some of the most exciting and jaw dropping areas of America including, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, Mount Rainier and much more. In FUEL, if you can see it, you can drive to it, taking any route on or off-road. With a draw distance of 40KM, 100,000 miles of roads, tracks and trails and hundreds of race events FUELâ€™s epic world demands to be explored.
FUEL was crowned by the Guiness World Records this week as officially having the “largest playable area in a console game” for its “5,560 square miles (14,400 kmÂ˛)” playing surface. Phil Wright, Producer, Codemasters commented:
“…to have this confirmed officially by Guinness World Records justifies our faith in this ground-breaking title. No other game comes close to offering the variety of environments, the range of vehicles or the sheer size of FUEL. Itâ€™s one of the most innovative racers ever, and weâ€™re thrilled itâ€™s been recognised as the biggest console game of all time.”
In celebration of such an epic achievement, the team have released a Tech Demo video which can be previewed above. It is however unfortunate that the game will be delayed for release by 1 week and should be available in stores on June 5th for the Xbox360 & PS3. A PC version will be made available at a later date.
