THE BUZZ: 2K has released a brand new trailer for Spec-Ops: The Line which features a lot of dead hostages.

The game is said to explore the dark realities of war and place players in difficult situations where the lines between right and wrong become blurred.

EGM’s TAKE: Based on this trailer they certainly are aiming to strike an emotional cord with the player. Whether players will actually take any notice is the real problem. We see so much death in video games that it no longer has a real pull over us, you give us a choice between saving one or the other and we don’t really care which dies. The major problem that the development team faces is making us care. If they can pull that off then this game is sure to be a hit.
