Signing on to Xbox Live or the Playstation Network will give you the opportunity to download a new demo. 2K Games and Yager Development have announced that the Spec Ops: The Line demo is now officially available on both systems. For fans looking to play the title on the PC, unfortunately the demo is absent from the platform.
If you’ve ever had the opportunity to play the Uncharted series, you may recognize the voice of the protagonist you play as, Martin Walker. That’s right, Nolan North has will voice the character you play as throughout your journey through Dubai. It’s hard not to think of his most famous character, Nathan Drake, from time to time. However, you’ll eventually think of the character moreso than the voice behind him as you progress through the demo.
If you don’t have the chance to play the demo right now, we’ve included a complete playthrough of the title thanks to YouTube user SuperRedOre. Continue viewing below for the four-part demo that showcases a complete playthrough of the Spec Ops: The Line demo.
Players that download the demo will be introduced to the brutal action and combat of Spec Ops: The Line. The single-player narrative unfolds within Dubai after a series of cataclysmic sandstorms cut the city off from the rest of the world. Playing as Captain Martin Walker, gamers add to the city’s destruction by engaging in action-packed firefights as they search for Colonel John Konrad and his missing battalion, The Damned 33rd. In search of answers and survivors, players who experience the demo will tear through portions of two early chapters of Spec Ops: The Line.
The squad-based action in Spec Ops: The Line is highlighted by an intelligent squad command system that allows players to tactfully take out insurgents as they advance into the heart of Dubai. Gamers will blast their way through sandstorms with a variety of weapons and explosives, even using sand as a weapon to strategically bury enemies in their path. Combining intense action with a riveting narrative and the unique setting of a sandstorm ravaged Dubai, Spec Ops: The Line is unlike any other military shooter.
In addition to the single-player campaign, Spec Ops: The Line features an expansive, class-based multiplayer experience that is fun for both casual and hard core gamers. The multiplayer mode features squad-based games in visually stunning and unique environments where players are encouraged to use their sand-filled surroundings to thwart their enemies; however, the environment can quickly turn from advantageous to treacherous with the onset of sandstorms – which impact visibility, team communication and weapon handling.
