Spec Ops: The Line Release Date Announced

THE BUZZ: 2K Games has announced the official release date for Spec Ops: The Line.

The game will hit North America on June 26 and Europe on June 29. Fans who pre-order the game will receive access to the FUBAR pack which will ”enhance the multiplayer experience,” according to the publisher. The pack includes:

  • Twice the amount of experience points will be awarded during the first week of play, enabling gamers to expedite character ranking;
  • The AK-47 weapon will unlock at rank one;
  • The “Officer Class” will unlock at rank one. This character class includes several team-based advantages, such as reducing damage to teammates and increasing the effectiveness of other classes;
  • Access to the “FUBAR Pack,” which contains exclusive accessories allowing players to customize their characters with unique and visually distinctive items.

EGM’s TAKE: The pre-order pack is a pretty sweet deal for a number of reasons. First, it’s completely free to anyone who pre-orders. Secondly you get double experience not just for the first day like most offers but for a whole week, a massive boost that could see you reaching top rank way before normal players. Finally, access to the AK-47 at rank  one, a staple gun in any shooter that almost every single fan will be comfortable and familiar with allowing you to instantly get into the action.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
