FUEL Events Trailer
Written By

Showcasing just some of the hundreds of exhilarating wheel-to-wheel, on- and off-road race events that will feature in FUEL, Codemasters today launched the new FUEL ‘Events’ gameplay video.
FUEL’s unprecedented 5,000 square mile+ racing environment is the perfect setting for a huge range of new and classic race events. The video features quads, buggies, bikes, cars and trucks competing in unique challenges that include ‘Chopper Chase’, where players must negotiate FUEL’s challenging terrain to overtake a helicopter and ‘Seek and Destroy’ where gamers must crash into designated rivals.
Other events include ‘Speed Run’ where players must complete a course against the clock using any route they choose and ‘Blitz’, which has players dashing from checkpoint to checkpoint to reset the timer in a series of tense sprints. These challenges are complimented with classic events, such as ‘Checkpoint’, ‘Circuit’ and large-scale ‘Raid’ races, but come with a twist as FUEL’s fully-open, corridor-free world powers real player choice when it comes to route selection and taking short-cuts. FUEL also comes complete with a powerful and intuitive race editor to create their own events set anywhere in the world and even share them online.

Interesting - as with most Codemasters games there's some elements that look incredible, and some that, uh, don't.

I was excited about this game beforehand, and some of the stuff I saw furthered that (Seek and Destroy in a monster truck vs. "regular" cars? yeah). But based on that trailer, this doesn't look anything like an open-world game (which it ostensibly is).

Circuit Race, Checkpoint Race, Speedrun are all just generic race formats. Chase the Chopper and Seek and Destroy look really fun. And what the hell is Raid?

This trailer honestly brought my excitement/expectations down for the game. Don't think that's what Codemasters wanted.

First cut scene where the chopper goes to drop the car off at the campfire kind of thing looks superb! what we've come to expect from CM's but the vehicles movement camera angles and I dread to think achievements could be......... nightmarish defo need a demo to change my mind

@13, have a wash then & WTF do we care!!!

I'm thinking that Codemasters are spanding all their time on Dirt 2 which looks insanley good, this on the other hand looks average. Like others say, wait for a demo and then pass judgement, but not on the edge of my seat like i am for some of the other forthcoming releases like Modern Warfare 2, Bioshock 2 & Dirt 2, lol, lots of 2's ahah :)

I'm sold, codemasters has always held up to my expectations(Dirt, Grid). I'm person who doesn't like racing games either but everytime i've tried there games i've ended up buying them.

DIRT and GRID were awesome. This looks a lot like DIRT. The game won't suck, but I'll dl the demo first. The song they chose is SO F'N GAY. That's the kind of crap you hear on MTV now-a-days. Music's gone to s*it these days.

The screen shot with the tornado in the background is really cool

song = honestly by ATTACK ATTACK
I dont believe it will be asgood as motorstorm but a definate buy for me. Like the gametypes and codemasters are yet to dissapoint on the 360. Main focus is Dirt 2.
