Spec Ops: The Line, 2K Games’ 2009-announced Dubai-set third-person shooter, will be released in spring 2012. A new trailer released today details protagonist Captain Walker’s journey through the sandstorm-ravaged city, where his squad is called to rescue the 33rd squad of the U.S. Infantry.
“With all of its grandeur and opulence, Dubai provides the perfect backdrop to play out Spec Ops: The Line’s deep and complex narrative. This bold endeavor harnesses 2K’s pedigree of creating fascinating stories, settings and worlds to create an aggressive narrative and environment that you won’t find in other games on the market,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Wartime narratives evoke emotion like few things else in our culture. Players will fight through this hostile environment in Spec Ops: The Line, creating a raw and unique video game experience.”
