Spec Ops: The Line free co-op mode now available

Posted by: Nathaniel at 8/21/2012 12:28 PM
I really enjoyed Spec Ops: The Line way back in June as I prepped for my review.  It was smartly written, and full of some pretty solidly constructed combat.  I was less sold on the multiplayer, but generally, multiplayer just isn't my bag.  

The one thing the game was lacking (that I failed to note in the review because I try not to judge games on things they aren't) was the lack of co-op.  I certainly didn't feel like it was screaming "CO-OP!" at me as I played it, so I never gave its co-op potential any thought.

However, that didn't stop Yager and 2K Games from thinking Spec Ops: The Line needed co-op - and now it has co-op.  Today you can download this new mode for free for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions of the game.
