THQ just sent word that Frontlines: Fuel of War “will become the only first person shooter to offer online multiplayer for over 50 players on a next-generation console” when it releases on Friday. The console in question is Xbox 360.
The first map to support 50 player multiplayer will be the Village, which starts off with house-to-house fighting and finished with all the buildings flattened and an OPEN FIELD OF DEATH. Check our capitals.
The 50-player limit had been rumoured before, but this is first confirmation.

Frontlines: Fuel of War, THQ’s upcoming shooter, will featue online support for up to 50 players, developer Kaos Studios confirmed today.
“Frontlines will in fact have some servers set to 50 players on the Xbox,” said on the team, speaking on the company’s forums. “We have been testing for some time now and its on heck of an experience.”
The game, set in a near-future where petrol’s become a scarce commodity, is out on PC and Xbox 360 at the end of this month. It was all looking peachy when we saw it at E3 last year, so there’s every reason to be watching this with a view to buy, especially if you’re a big Live fan.

Metaboli‘s inked a new deal with THQ that will see Frontlines: Fuel of War and Warhammer 40,000 Soulstorm, as well as a range of high profile back catalogue titles such as Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights , S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and Company of Heroes, be made available for sale through its download service.
Soulstorm and Frontlines haven’t shipped yet, and there’s no detail on whether or not these are going to be available through Metaboli at the same time you can buy the discs. Metaboli man’s pretty happy about it, either way.
