0 Spec Ops: The Line Crack

The Line’s fictional version of Dubai, like its real-world counterpart, was an extravagantly prosperous city in the United Arab Emirates. Trillions of dollars were invested in infrastructure, opulent housing, and recreation for the rich.

Six months prior to the game, the worst series of
sandstorms in recorded history began across the Dubai Emirate. Dubai's politicians and wealthy elite downplayed the situation before evacuating in secret, leaving countless Emiratis behind. Colonel John Konrad, the decorated but troubled commander of “The Damned” 33rd Battalion, U.S Army, was returning home with his unit from Afghanistan when the storms struck. 

Konrad volunteered the 33rd Battalion to help with international relief efforts, then deserted with the entire unit when ordered to abandon the city and its refugees by the U.S Government. As the storms intensified, a massive storm wall engulfed Dubai for miles, disrupting any satellite surveillance and communication, air travel, and all but the strongest radio broadcasts. The 33rd declared martial law, and struggled to maintain order amid 80 mph winds, riots, and dwindling resources. 

The last communication out of Dubai stated that the 33rd was attempting to lead a caravan of more than a thousand civilians out of the city. The caravan never arrived, and soon afterwards the UAE declared Dubai a No-man's-land. All travel to the city was barred, the 33rd was publicly disavowed for treason, and no further news left the city.
