Counter-Strike Creator Developing New Free-to-play Shooter
Hot on the heels of a large Counter-Strike: Global Offensive beta patch, there is news of a former Valve developer working on his own FPS game.
One of the original Counter-Strike developers, Minh Le (a.k.a. Gooseman), is working on a free-to-play FPS called Tactical Intervention. The game has been in development for some time now and bears some resemblance to its CS origins. The counter-terrorists in the trailer above, for example, will look pretty familiar to anyone who has played CS before. The trailer also shows two interesting sequences: a shot of firefight, where a CT is firing his gun over a barrier while taking cover, and a driving scene, which possibly indicates that there could be a real single-player component (which would certainly be a departure from the games CS roots).
Tactical Intervention is being published in the US by OGPlanet and is scheduled to go into closed beta in March. You can sign up for the beta on the Tactical Intervention website.
Counter-Strike fans have always been a passionate bunch. Given the developer cred behind it, do you think Tactical Intervention has a chance to be great? Let us know in the comments!
