Spec Ops: The Line release date announced

2K Games have today set the release date for upcoming shooter Spec Ops: The Line. It will be hitting the US on June 26th, with an International release 3 days later.

Christoph Hartmann, the president of the publisher, had this to say on the exciting news:

Spec Ops: The Line is 2K Games’ first foray into the military shooter genre. 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.”

It was also confirmed that anyone who pre-orders the game will be upgraded to the Premium Edition, packed full of extra multiplayer goodness:

  • 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, developed by German studio YAGER, recently had a hands-on event in New York, which Josh attended you may remember. If you haven’t already read his thoughts on the innovative FPS, or listened to the podcast where he discussed it, be sure to do so.
