New free-to-play shooter from Counter-Strike co-creator, Tactical Intervention, to launch at the end of March
Tactical Intervention, the new free-to-play shooter from Minh 'Gooseman' Le is set to launch at the end of this month.
The new shooter builds upon Le's experiences developing Counter-Strike at Valve and includes a raft of features that he had always wanted to see in first person shooters.
The most significant of these is the Highway Mission where players take control of a vehicle chasing after a single target. It also includes things like the ability to call in attack dogs, using rappel ropes to gain an advantage and even take hostages to use as human shields.
The game will be going through beta testing throughout March beginning with a Joystiq-exclusive closed beta from March the 4th to March the 8th. The open beta phase them begins on March the 14th with the game launching fully on March the 28th. More information is available on the Tactical Intervention website.
