Tag Archives: Spec Ops: The Line
2012 was a tour de force for all things gaming: indie titles ran amok in the end of the year awards and AAA titles stepped up their game to deliver some of the freshest experiences in years. However, at Addicted Gamers we feel that some games undeservedly slipped under the radar somewhat. Find out about the 7 games you (yes, you) didn’t pick up and play from 2012.
Take-Two have put out a demo for Spec Ops: The Line today. The demo contains two single player missions, taking place in the full game’s setting of a future sandstorm infested Dubai, where you must go in search of some missing comrades, and of course you’ll also get to shoot stuff.
If you’re an Xbox 360 Gold Subscriber, it’s available to download right now. The PlayStation 3 demo will be available later today when the PlayStation Store updates, which should be very soon. Sadly, users who don’t have a Gold subscription will have to wait until May 15, and PC players will have to find something else to do for now. But the demo will arrive on PC sometime in June before launch, according to Shacknews.
The full game launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on June 26 in North America and June 29 everywhere else.
Going to PAX can be a blast. You roam around, geeking out over all things awesome, and there’s no shame involved because everyone else is just like you, and doing the exact same thing. And sometimes you’re exposed to stuff, like swag, developer walkthroughs and even playable demos, that later become memories for after the show when you head back to being a student or a store clerk or a coal miner or a Walmart Greeter – in actual order of ascending unpleasantness.
On their Blog, 2k revealed what they’re planning to show off at this year’s upcoming PAX East, which is only 10 days away. Among the titles showing up, Borderlands 2 and Spec Ops: The Line will have playable demos, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Civilization V: Gods and Kings will have demo presentations. If you can’t make it but are still dying to see one of these games in action, 2k will also be live streaming.
So, why not start cookin’ up those memories? Couldn’t hurt.
