2K has dated the PC demo of Spec Ops: The Line for June 19. The publisher has also revealed the system requirements, and confirmed that it'll use Steamworks as DRM.
Remind me: people were reasonably impressed with this game, yes? I'm excited to see what the buzz is about.
I thought the demo was awful. It was entirely generic and had not a single stand out feature from what I could tell.
The storyline could have been interesting but when the opening scene has you mini-gunning 12 helicopters out of the sky my suspension of disbelief was somewhat lost.
Fighting homegrown renegades in an ever flowing sand pit.... sign me up!
