Spec Ops: The Line release date, pre-order bonuses revealed

After a series of Spec Ops: The Line delays since its announcement back in 2009, 2K Games has finally stamped a (hopefully) final release date for their tactical third-person shooter: June 26.

“Spec Ops: The Line is 2K Games’ first foray into the military shooter genre,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “We’ve created a unique game that explores the dark realities of war and places players in difficult situations where the line between right and wrong becomes increasingly blurred as players fight to survive.”

In addition to announcing Spec Ops: The Line‘s release date, 2K dropped details on the obligatory pre-order incentives. If you pre-order at select retailers–2K games didn’t say which ones–you’ll get access to the premium edition, which includes the “FUBAR” pack.

Here’s what you’ll be getting with Spec Ops: The Line‘s “Premium Edition”:

  • Twice the amount of experience points will be awarded during the first week of play, enabling gamers to expedite character ranking;
  • The AK-47 weapon will unlock at rank one;
  • The “Officer Class” will unlock at rank one. This character class includes several team-based advantages, such as reducing damage to teammates and increasing the effectiveness of other classes;
  • Access to the “FUBAR Pack,” which contains exclusive accessories allowing players to customize their characters with unique and visually distinctive items.
