Through the lens of what was perhaps one of the most haunting trailers ever since the promo media for the original Silent Hill game, we saw that Spec Ops : The Line could be one of, if not the most, fascinating third person shooters to play this year.
However, the heavily edited eyes that we watched it through means that the trailer footage is no perfect illustration of how Specs Ops : The Line's sand, storyline and superb shooting/gravity physics will play out ; for that we need to play it and what better way to get a hands-on of the game (that isn't busting in the publisher's warehouses, of course) than a demo?
Publisher of the Dubai-based military shooter, 2K Games, have handily just announced a playable teaser of the game's action that will give us a taste of the single-player story, in which we play as the Nolan North (best known as the voice and body of Uncharted's Nathan Drake) voiced protagonist, Captain Martin Walker, as he and his team search for the insane madman, Colonel John Konrad, and the (also completely bananas) group of troops that he has convinced to aid him in ruthlessly slaying the remaining survivors of a giant sandstorm that his ravaged the place.
In the demo, you can take on the squad command system that the full version of Specs Op : The Line will include, as well as several weapons and explosive devices, using the devastated environment to your advantage as you attempt to take out the many hordes of enemy forces.
The Spec Ops : The Line demo goes live today for the PlayStation Network and to GOLD Xbox Live subscribers (the Spec Ops : The Line demo will go live for all Xbox Live Subscribers next week on May 15th).
And if that doesn't quench your third-person shooter thirst, you only have to look to Summer for the full version of the game as the Spec Ops : The Line release date is June 29th, 2012.
