Spec Ops: The Line, 2K’s Dubai-based shooter has been MIA, since a while now, but today (or late last night), it emerged from the dead via a new trailer. This new clip dubbed “The Journey” shows us what remains of Dubai after apocalyptic sandstorms have completely destroyed this shopper’s paradise. There isn’t a lot of gameplay to go on, but the game sure does look moody.
Need backup now
“With all of its grandeur and opulence, Dubai provides the perfect backdrop to play out Spec Ops: The Line’s deep and complex narrative," says Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K. "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. 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.”
It has been a while since we heard anything about this game, but it’s good to know that the project’s still alive. We should hopefully hear more about it and see it in action early next year. Thanks to Gameinformer for the heads up.
