Kaos Studios’ open world FPS Frontlines: Fuel of War sure is taking its time getting out the developer’s door and onto retail shelves. It’s enough to make anyone a little narky.
It’s all good though, and here’s why.
Well, it’s for Asia Pacific, but it’s a nice treat nonetheless. A shot of the pack can be seen above, and details of the contents can be found after the jump. Sufficed to say, it’s packed with jam, and includes a soundtrack disc, poster, strategy guide and playing cards. According to THQ, only 10,000 will be made. Not a bad deal for $109.95.
Also included with all this is news of the Frontlines PC beta, which is starting this weekend. The specifics can be found at the game’s website.
As an aside, the PS3 version of Frontlines is being developed locally by THQ Studio Australia, otherwise known as Studio Oz. Stay tuned for our Q&A!
