Spec Ops: The Line release date announced

Pre-order for an "immediate advantage" in multiplayer.

Dubai third-person shooter Spec Ops: The Line launches in the US on 26th June and everywhere else on 29th June, 2K Games has announced.

Those release dates apply to all three versions of the Yager-developed game: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Pre-order and you get in-game bonuses for use in multiplayer, which 2K senior producer Denby Grace said provide an "immediate advantage".

The pre-order bonuses, in 2K's words:

  • 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.

"Spec Ops: The Line is 2K Games' first foray into the military shooter genre," 2K president Christoph Hartmann said.

"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."

2K released a new trailer, below, which goes into more detail on the multiplayer pre-order bonuses.
