These days it seems every game needs to have multiplayer whether it enhances the game or not. Spec Ops: The Line lead designer Cory Davis believes multiplayer was unnecessary for Spec Ops and is far from happy with the result.
Spec Ops: The Line developer Yager is hard at work on a 'big project', according to a developer at the studio.
Spec Ops: The Line will get new co-op campaign missions available as free DLC, which is expected to launch "approximately" around August.
In our Spec Ops: The Line review we said that while Yager's shooter is "tonally confused across the board, it's not brainless".
Remember the bit in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness when Marlow picked off 500 people from behind cover? Er, us neither. But, despite its almost ceaseless violence, this German-made third-person shooter is less 'inspired' by Conrad's novel as full-on remaking it. (Or, at least remaking it via Apocalypse Now.)
2K has released the launch trailer for Yager's Spec Ops: The Line. Don't be fooled by all the warm looking sand, bad things are going down in Dubai.
Amidst all the hubbub of E3 it's easy to forget the games that are actually coming out this month. Step forward, then, Spec Ops: The Line. The Dubai-set shooter is set to break from cover in Europe on June 29th.
