THQ today released a single-player demo for its first-person shooter Frontlines: Fuel of War. The demo allows players to battle through two sets of frontline objectives in a fierce struggle to capture a Red Star Alliance tank factory.
In the Frontlines demo, players can draw upon an arsenal of next-generation weapons including remote-controlled drones, air-bursting grenades, air strikes and tanks as they fight to take down Red Star air support and gain control of the base in an open-world environment.
When it releases, Frontlines: Fuel of War will offer multiplayer support for up to 32 players on console (with dedicated servers) and up to 64 players on PC via LAN or Internet. The game is based on actual locations in Central Asia, with a campaign that includes seven unique theaters of war.
Here’s the plot summary: In a world ravaged by a global energy crisis, environmental decay, and a new economic depression, the story follows a division of Western Coalition soldiers, The Stray Dogs, through a dark vision of our future. Players assume the role of an elite soldier in the Stray Dogs on an epic crusade against the Red Star Alliance to control the last of the world’s oil reserves.
