Starting today, console gamers get to try out a taste of Yager Development's 2K Games-published third-person shooter Spec Ops: The Line, compliments of a newly released playable demo. The chunk pulled from two of the game's early chapters offers a glimpse at the dark and frequently disturbing story which carries echoes of Joseph Conrad's novella, Heart of Darkness.
The demo is available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms, but on the 360 side only Xbox Live Gold subscribers can start downloading it now. Silver subscribers will have to wait until May 15 for access. There's no rush though, since we've still got a bit of time before the game is released. Spec Ops: The Line arrives in stores on June 26, 2012 for PS3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC platforms.
