Spec Ops: The Line launched this week to a solid reception from critics. Nobody’s houses were relocated upon its release, but the game has found its own little cozy corner of the gaming world. One major detraction shared by most reviewers is the lack of a solid multiplayer option, because games are just not complete without one I guess.
No worries though. Yager Development has it covered. 2K Games has confirmed that Spec Ops: The Line’s upcoming free DLC will add four new missions taking place prior to the game’s campaign storyline. The missions bring new maps into play and will allow up to four players to tackle the new sorties together.
It’s not quite the mutliplayer fix fans have been looking for, but at least Yager Development is listening and addressing some issues. Shooters are required to have dozens of multiplayer options nowadays, or else they are not worth a purchase, even if the stated purpose of the game is attempting to push the boundaries of game storytelling. Didn’t Yager Development get the memo beforehand? Get with it guys.
Spec Ops: The Line launched on June 26th for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The DLC will be release across all three platforms “approximately” in August.
