Hello fellas, Today we are going to give you an update on 2K Games latest shooter, Spec Ops: The Line. “But Cheeto, haven’t we had enough shooters already?” Yes we did boys, but have we played a tactical Squad-based third-person military shooter that challenges our morality to make life saving decisions while surviving epic sandstorms in the ruined city of Dubai? Yeah, didn’t think so!
Spec Ops: The Line is inspired by Joseph Conrad’s novella Heart of Darkness. The game is developed by Yager Development and published by 2K Games. It was officially announced at Spike Video Game Awards on December 12, 2009. A demo was shown to audience in E3 2010 and the official trailer shown below was released yesterday by 2K Games with no explanations on why the giant advertisement screens survived the face-melting sandstorms?, or why is commander Shepard from Mass Effect playing the main character? (He does look like commander Shepard right?)
This year’s two biggest military shooters, both released within the last 30 days, are, of course, Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3. IGN has pitted the two in a head-to-head competition by putting the players (read: IGN’s readers) in charge of the outcome across three categories: graphics, multiplayer, and campaign. Given the sales numbers and the fanboyism behind one of the titles, the outcome is rather surprising. Just look at the total votes for each title at the end. I got a chuckle out of it.
