Spec Ops: The Line Playable Demo Now Available - Xbox Live
Gamers invited on action-packed journey into Dubai before game's release on June 29, 2012
K Games have announced that a free playable* demo of the highly anticipated third-person military shooter, Spec Ops: The Line, is now available for gamers who are Gold members on the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network and on the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. The demo will become available for all Xbox LIVE members on May 15, 2012.
Players that download the demo will be introduced to the brutal action and combat of Spec Ops: The Line. The single-player narrative unfolds within Dubai after a series of cataclysmic sandstorms cut the city off from the rest of the world. Playing as Captain Martin Walker, gamers add to the city's destruction by engaging in action-packed firefights as they search for Colonel John Konrad and his missing battalion, The Damned 33rd. In search of answers and survivors, players who experience the demo will tear through portions of two early chapters of Spec Ops: The Line.
The squad-based action in Spec Ops: The Line is highlighted by an intelligent squad command system that allows players to tactfully take out insurgents as they advance into the heart of Dubai. Gamers will blast their way through sandstorms with a variety of weapons and explosives, even using sand as a weapon to strategically bury enemies in their path. Combining intense action with a riveting narrative and the unique setting of a sandstorm ravaged Dubai, Spec Ops: The Line is unlike any other military shooter.
In addition to the single-player campaign, Spec Ops: The Line features an expansive, class-based multiplayer experience that is fun for both casual and hard core gamers. The multiplayer mode features squad-based games in visually stunning and unique environments where players are encouraged to use their sand-filled surroundings to thwart their enemies; however, the environment can quickly turn from advantageous to treacherous with the onset of sandstorms - which impact visibility, team communication and weapon handling.
Developed by YAGER, Spec Ops: The Line will be available in North America for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PS3™ and PC on June 26, 2012, and internationally on June 29, 2012.
Spec Ops: The Line is rated BBFC 18. For a complete Spec Ops: The Line experience, including the latest news, downloads, information and more please visit www.specopstheline.com. Check out Spec Ops: The Line on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/specops.
