For the next two days Spec Ops: The Line will be available for free on the Humble Store, where Humble account holders can redeem a free copy of the critically claimed title which is playable on Windows, Mac and Linux. 

Spec Ops: The Line offers both a story-driven Campaign and a separate co-op mode, where players can work together online to complete smaller missions, using 3rd person shooter mechanics with horizontally and vertically oriented maps to offer a lot of combat variety. Right now Spec Ops: The Line sells for £19.99 on Steam, making this free offer on Humble a great deal.  


    Spec Ops: The Line is an action-packed Third-Person Shooter that delivers heart pounding physically close combat through a squad-based play mechanic. Players lead a team of three characters, Captain Martin Walker, Lieutenant Adams and Sergeant Lugo. Each character has his own distinct personality and specialized skills, and the mature story they each play a role in explores the dark side of war in a realistic way, in which there are no good outcomes, only hard choices.

As missions are completed more advanced weapons and equipment are made available. In addition, the desert environment of Dubai is brought into the game in a unique way with stunning visuals, and dynamic sandstorms that actively effect level designs, and which can be used to help and hinder progress. The vertical interiors of Dubai high rise buildings also provide tactical advantages and risks that can used be by players. Multiplayer campaigns bring new modes and unusual situations and environments to expand the single player experience.

I already have it. It's a fantastic game. Simplistic gameplay and short campaign, but the story is pretty great.Quote

Brilliant game but criminally underrated. I will advise not reading anything and go into it blind, the pay off is better that wayQuote
