Developed by YAGER, Spec Ops: The Line's single-player narrative unfolds within the destroyed opulence of Dubai. Once the playground for the world's wealthiest elite, Dubai has fallen victim to a series of cataclysmic sandstorms. Playing as Captain Martin Walker, gamers will travel through beautiful and tragic environments in this gripping third-person shooter in the midst of unspeakable situations. Spec Ops: The Line will bring a riveting narrative to the military shooter genre, as players fight through Dubai to search for Colonel John Konrad and his missing battalion, The Damned 33rd.

"Spec Ops: The Line is 2K Games' first foray into the military shooter genre," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "We've created a unique game that explores the dark realities of war and places players in difficult situations where the line between right and wrong becomes increasingly blurred as players fight to survive."

In addition to the single-player campaign, Spec Ops: The Line features an expansive, class-based multiplayer experience. The multiplayer mode features squad-based games that take place in the visually stunning environments of a sandstorm ravaged Dubai. As an added incentive, players who pre-order the game from participating retailers will receive a free upgrade to the Premium Edition, containing the following online multiplayer content:

  • Twice the amount of experience points will be awarded during the first week of play, enabling gamers to expedite character ranking;
  • The AK-47 weapon will unlock at rank one;
  • The "Officer Class" will unlock at rank one. This character class includes several team-based advantages, such as reducing damage to teammates and increasing the effectiveness of other classes;
  • Access to the "FUBAR Pack," which contains exclusive accessories allowing players to customize their characters with unique and visually distinctive items.

"We're delighted to officially announce the first details about the multiplayer in Spec Ops: The Line," said Denby Grace, senior producer at 2K Games. "In addition, people who pre-order the game are going to have an immediate advantage in the multiplayer mode."

Spec Ops: The Line is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. For more information, please visit www.specopstheline.com.
