2K Games announced today that a demo of Spec Ops: The Line, a third-person military shooter developed by Yager, is now available for Xbox LIVE Gold members and for the PlayStation Network users - the demo will become available for all Xbox LIVE members on May 15, 2012.
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 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.
Spec Ops: The Line is due to be launched in North America on June 26, 2012, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 - the game will be available internationally on June 29, 2012.
