The Spec Ops franchise has seen eight games being released since the original PC title in 1998, so it has established itself as a favourite game with the many fans it gathered over the years. This year sees the release of the ninth title, Spec Ops: The Line, and will take players on a modern day journey through an adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s novella Heart of Darkness.
The FPS will also have something special for long-time gamers, as it does not take any story elements from previous titles, and rather focuses on its own plot. This is great for gamers who have never played a Spec Ops title, and it brings returning players a fresh story.
The Line’s plot will revolve around Captain Martin Walker and his elite Delta Force bravo team as they investigate a post-apocalyptic

Spec Ops: The Line should be highly-enjoyable for new players, and will prove to be an exciting challenge for gamers who are familiar with the franchise. From the trailer it is clear that the graphics will be brilliant, and that a lot of action is in store for wanna-be Spec Ops members.
The trailer also provided gamers with a glimpse of the third-person perspective, the dynamic terrain elements, as well as the setting. It should be very entertaining.
With a new setting and storyline, it should be great fun.
