Spec Ops: The Line
Spec Ops: The Line Multiplayer Trailer Gets Sand in its Pants

View author's profile

2K and Yager have released a new Spec Ops: The Line multiplayer trailer, showcasing the game's incredibly sandy team-based game modes, from the straight-up Team Deathmatch joys of Mutiny, to the back and forth madness of Rally Point and Buried.

Fundamentally, the trailer is a simple overview for multiplayer, showing off the squad-based combat and sand gameplay, which enables you to exploit leaking weak points on the map to unleash a huge avalanche of sand upon your rivals. You'll have to brave intermittent sandstorms too, reducing visibility temporarily and making enemy encounters hair-trigger kill or be killed affairs.

Check out the new gameplay trailer below, then read our Spec Ops: The Line hands-on multiplayer preview. A lot has changed since the beta. Spec Ops: The Line is out on June 26th in North America and June 29th in Europe.

Hear me out...I think this multiplayer looks gimmicky-ish, like it's in the game because nearly every shooter has multiplayer. I personally thought this game has an outstanding story from the looks of it and is it me or do the graphics somehow look more appealing in the storymode?
I'm not hating on the game but some games are better without multiplayer and I thought this would have been one of those games, Nice Story, Nice Graphics, Great Scenario, sorta like how Assassin's Creed, Ninja Gaiden doesn't need multiplayer...

Looks fairly bland and unoriginal. Especially compared to the pure win that is Ghost Recon: Future Soldier beta.

As the title says "sand in my pants" Well better sand in your pants then in your eyes trust me, this said, i realy love the story mode behind the single player or better put whats been revieled so far from it, and it do sounds and looks good, with Nolan North doing capt. Walker voice (yes the guy behind many game voices like Salem of Army Of Two, or the Uncharted series)
But as stocked i was Spec-ops gets a MP i don,t know, the caracters look alot like guys stripped down right away from an Army of Two MP game with all those weird facemasks and headgear, the running animations look like they taken straight from an uncharted mp game. All in all very random so far but i hold back my judgement untill i see it fully and played it but i had it pre-ordered anyways just because of the setting and the story.

i prefer getting Ghost Recon Future Soldier over Spec Ops. Spec Ops can wait months or so.

The beta for this game back last year was bloody awful. Lets hope it's improved significantly since then.
