Spec Ops: The Line

Spec Ops: The Line is free on the Humble Store for a limited time, and while stocks last.

That’s the news, right there. It’s as simple as that.

Yager Development’s much-loved FPS, Spec Ops: The Line is currently free on the Humble Store, with Windows, Mac, and Linux Steam keys available while supplies last. At the time of writing the game is still available, and is well worth playing if you haven’t yet had the opportunity.

Set in a Dubai buried by a cataclysmic sandstorm, Spec Ops: The Line is part first-person shooter, part morality tale. The ambitious game doesn’t hide its influences as it follows in the footsteps of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, and Coppola’s Apocalypse Now.

Thumbsticks writer, James Sweeting, is a big supporter of the game, saying it does an “outstanding job of creating a meaningful modern military shooter that explores the horrors of conflict that can take place in a modern setting, whilst also managing to highlight the problems that plague the genre.”

Head over to the Humble Store to get Spec Ops: The Line for free.
