Spec Ops: The Line Launch Trailer Takes You to Hell

Blue skies

If Hell looks as good as 2K Games’ upcoming Spec Ops: The Line, then we’re booking front-row seats. The oft-delayed title may be yet another third-person shooter, but it at least boasts a broader colour palette than the usual permutations of brown and grey. Mmm, just look at that Dubai skyline – it’s orange and blue. The game's...

Making the way for GTA?

Irrational Games has pushed back the release of BioShock Infinite until 26th February, 2013.

News: Irrational Games Focusing on BioShock Infinite, Not Vita

Irrational Games Focusing on BioShock Infinite, Not Vita

Nothing to say

When Ken Levine announced BioShock Vita at Sony’s E3 press conference last year, it was clear that the project was nothing but an idea. Fast-forward a year and not much has changed, with Levine’s studio, Irrational Games, opting to focus its attention on the upcoming BioShock Infinite. In an interview with Wired, the studio lead...

2K Fires New Spec Ops: The Line Multiplayer Footage Online

Sand master

At first glance, this Spec Ops: The Line multiplayer trailer looks frightfully familiar. We’re not going to deny that the eight-player class-based competitive combat looks fun, but we’ve seen it all before. Where the game’s online component finds an identity, however, is in its implementation of sand. Like the single-player...

First Impressions: Spec Ops: The Line

Spec Ops: The Line

End of the line

Spec Ops: The Line owes a lot to the Uncharted series — and not just because Nolan North lends his voice to the game’s gruff protagonist Captain Martin Walker. The combat – which takes place from a third-person perspective – is hugely derivative of Nathan Drake’s series, as you meander between conveniently placed vehicles...

Confront the Sand in New Spec Ops: The Line Trailer

Bucket and spade

We’ve all spent trips to the seaside playing in the sand, but Spec Ops: The Line doesn’t look quite so innocent. The Yager developed shooter sees the typically tranquil Dubai coated in more sand than the Sahara desert. It doesn't help that there's a number of shady folks hanging around either. The good news is that you play as a...

Tool up

BioShock Infinite is set in a completely different world to the original title, so naturally there are no Big Daddies or Little Sisters. Instead there are Heavy Hitters, of which we’ve already been introduced to one: the Motorized Patriot. Now Irrational Games has raised the curtain on the game’s second heavy hitter, known as the...
