FUEL Will Be Backwards Compatible from January 10th

Codemasters' unusual alternate-reality racer FUEL will be available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility from January 10th. The news was revealed by the company on their official Twitter account.


FUEL came out in 2009 for the Xbox 360 and features an alternate present-day America in which global warming has rendered large swathes of the continent lifeless. As people retreat to renewable-energy safe zones, thrill-seekers head out into the wastes to burn all the fuel we don't need anymore — battling floods, storms and hurricanes in the process.

Download the manual for this game by locating the game on http://marketplace.xbox.com and selecting “See Game Manual". The Games on Demand version supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish. In an alternate present, vast swathes of America have become no-go areas as the devastating effects of global warming ravage the continent. Floods, storms, bush-fires, tornados and hurricanes have driven people from towns and cities into safe zones as extreme weather wreaks havoc, creating thousands of square miles of dangerous uninhabitable areas. People turn to renewable energy in the face of the destruction caused by global warming. But these danger zones become a playground for a new breed of racer. With a stockpile of fuel to be burned, adrenaline junkies head into the wilderness to compete against each other in spectacular races against themselves and the elements.
