Spec Ops: The Line starts out after a massive and devastating sandstorm moves through Dubai. The sand wipes out most of the city's population, ruining building in its wake. Sand isn't just a part of the scenery though, it's an environmental tool that can help you as much as it hinders you. With the right timing, you can use the sand to take out your enemies. You can throw a grenade into the sand, kicking up the dust, obstructing their vision. Then there are the sanvalanches, yes, avalanches of sand.
Spec Ops: The Line will be released on June 26, 2012.
