Spec Ops: The Line Landing on Mac Today

The military themed gritty shooter by 2K Games, Spec Ops: The Line is finally arriving to Macintosh today, thanks to the US based developer Digital Tribe Games who has been collaborating with 2K for the Mac version’s development.

The ninth addition to the 1998’s initiated series, Spec Ops: The Line was initially released to Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in June last year though it took around a year for the Mac version related rumors to surface and later make sense.

A third person shooter, The Line puts you in the shoes of three characters: Captain Martin Walker, Lieutenant Adams and Sergeant Lugo each with a distinctive area of expertise and personality.

Inside the game, it gets you closer to the horrendous dark side of war with a mature take on the story. You will face a lot of tactical decisions, squad based maneuvers and dynamic environments.

“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,” reads the developer’s website.

SteamPlay will allow cross platform play between Windows and Mac versions of the game.

For the Mac users out there, here are the minimum specs that you would want to own in order to play the game:

  • Mac OSX 10.7.5
  • 4GB RAM
  • Intel Dual Core processor
  • Video card recommendations:
  • Radeon HD 4670/4850/4870 and 5670/5750/5770/5870/6630/6750/6770/6970
