FIX Korea, Minh Le kicking off closed beta for free-to-play FPS in March.
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.
@g-man_III How did a counter-strike headline grab your eye? This game is so outdated. You and all you other people need to hop on a real fps like cod
Didn't really see much interesting there, but who knows, right? Will these guys EVER learn to have it look like you're actually holding a gun with weight?
looks fun idk why everyone thinks it sucks or looks lame. i cant wait to try it and see all the tactics used in this game maybe its a whole new counter strike with more realistic tactics and features
Um... This already had a closed beta. Like, last year or 2 years ago. Barely anybody played it :/. Old, old, old news. Though hopefully this beta run will be more popular.
Judging by [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYm6Ld_we4k]beta footage[/URL], it doesn't look all that great. It may be the same creator as CS, but I'm not too interested.
I for one can never have enough GOOD fps games to play. I'm not about to play the slew of bad ones/copys though.
Counter Strike is still played by many gamers, but I have to say...Why now? FPS games have been squeezed out these past few years that I'm getting tired of seeing another FPS game. But it's a good thing that they aren't using the Counter Strike game to ruin it's great reputation.
I thought this was dead, seriously i've been looking into it for the past few months and the forums/news section was long dead. Nice that its still in development.
@Tom gooseman was instrumental in the development of the GoldSRC HL1 mod Counterstrike, he had little if no "intervention" in CS:Source on the Source engine. : )
Wow, this might be pretty interesting. I'll give it a try. I wonder what the gunplay will be like. Hoping it's more Stalker or Red Orchestra like. edit: @Tom: Your wording makes it sound like Counter-Strike GO is a mod for HL2, and that HL2 was the game that the Counter-Strike mod started on.
