Spec Ops: The Line PC demo and requirements announced

Console gamers have already got their hands on the demo for 2K’s upcoming shooter, Spec Ops: The Line, and now PC gamers are getting their shot at playing in the bullet-filled sandpit.

The PC demo of Spec Ops: The Line will be released on 12 June, with the game hitting retail and digital release on 29 June.

Loosely based upon Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, Spec Ops the line features soldiers who have to endure the harsh realities of war and the human condition.

The surroundings also play a pivotal role as players battle their way through post-sandstorm-apocalyptic Dubai and are able to use sand to their advantage, such as shooting out a window to bury enemies. The dangers also apply to the players though, as the tough conditions could lead to your own demise.

Check out our hands-on preview, where James got some one-on-one time with the game. Read all of MyGaming’s coverage of Spec Ops: The Line.

The game uses Valve’s Steamworks and will require a one-time Steam authentication before playing the game.
