Valve is expected to breathe new life into the Counter-Strike franchise later this year with Global Offensive, and it appears as if it will have competition from that Half-Life 2 mod's original creator. OG Gaming announced today that a closed beta for Minh "Gooseman" Le's free-to-play shooter Tactical Intervention will begin in March.
Like Counter-Strike, Tactical Intervention is a competitive shooter pitting terrorists against peacekeepers. Beyond team deathmatch, two mission types have been announced: Hostage Rescue and VIP Escort. A variety of real-world weaponry used by counterterrorists and insurgents alike will be available to players.
Commandos will also have equipment, ranging from helmets to gloves, that provides stat bonuses. Tactical Intervention will also include a number of different vehicles, with drivers and riders alike able to spray bullets at their enemies.
