Spec Ops: The Line release date is June 26!
To the third person shooting community (3PS/TPS), Spec Ops: The Line may fill a void that SOCOM was trying to capture in their last installment (which may be the last installment, if you get my drift, IT HURTS ME TO SAY THAT). Well, Spec Ops is older than SOCOM and it is getting a reboot. The story mode is already shaping out to be a great one.
The MULTIPLAYER details have been kept under lock and key until today! We finally got some news about it, which confirms that IT WILL HAVE IT… SOCOM people not converting to GRFS, please pay attention to this game and GREEN UP! Oh, by the way, Yes its MULTI-PLATFORM.
Good news for those of you who can’t wait to explore sandstorm-ravaged Dubai in Spec Ops: The Line. Today we announced that the game will hit stores in North America on June 26, 2012 and internationally on June 29.
Even better is the news that if you pre-order the game, you get a free upgrade to the Premium Edition, which comes with a bunch of perks for fans of the competitive squad-based multiplayer mode. The Premium Edition will grant you the following bonuses:
First Week Double XP. During your first week, you’ll get double the XP for every match you play.
AK-47. The popular AK-47 will be yours at rank 1.
Officer Class. You’ll be able to play as the “Officer” class from the very beginning, which gives your team advantages such as reduced damage and increasing the effectiveness of other classes.
FUBAR Pack. You get unique accessories to customize your character’s appearance.
We’ve been playtesting the multiplayer around the office quite a bit recently and believe me when I say that it’s been very fun (yes, even when the producers royally kick my ass!) Check out our just-released multiplayer trailer to see it in action for yourself.
We’ll be talking a lot more about what makes multiplayer so fun as the release date draws closer, so keep your eye on our Facebook page for the latest news.
