Spec Ops: The Line now set for release in late June photo



Spec Ops: The Line is gearing up for release on June 26, 2012 in North America and June 29 for international audiences. As much as I'm still down for third-person shooters, it's mostly the setting and narrative tone -- the stuff outside of Yager's game mechanics -- that have me most interested.

Of course, dear reader, it wouldn't be a release-date post without the usual pre-order incentives. Participating retailers are offering a free upgrade to Premium Edition, which has goodies for The Line's class-based multiplayer.

If you'd rather not watch the attached trailer, the bonuses are: twice as much experience points during launch week, access to the AK-47 at rank one, the Officer class unlocked at rank one, and the "FUBAR Pack," which comes with exclusive character accessories.

Yager adds free co-op mode to Spec Ops: The Line

It was always the narrative of Spec Ops: The Line that seemed most intriguing, though admittedly even that wasn't convincing enough for me -- not at $59.99, anyway. Even still, it's admirable of developer Yager to put out a c...more

Review: Spec Ops: The Line

After all the door kicking, screaming, blindfire, grenade tossing, and turret handling, a soldier always walks away from battle alive with a strong moral compass intact. This last detail is the most disparate departure fro...more

Spec Ops: The Line had me question my morals

I'll admit it: when I first saw Spec Ops: The Line's debut teaser back at the Video Game Awards a couple of years ago, I kind of just shrugged it off. It looked cool, but not to the point where I was hooked into following it...more
