Tactical Intervention Bringing Its Shootery Goodness to Steam
Minh Le, AKA Gooseman, was one of the minds behind the original Counter-Strike mod for Half-Life, which went on to become one of the most revolutionary PC shooters of all-time. So when he stamps his name on a project, you can be pretty sure it'll be worth paying attention to.
At least, that seems to be the case for his latest project, Tactical Intervention.
Here's a description of the game, according to an official press release: "The thoughtfully designed maps are based on realistic scenarios and offer toe-to-toe confrontations. Among others, terrorist and anti-terrorist units will face each other down in shopping malls, across industrial parks, inside subway stations and on the tops of skyscrapers. Depending on game mode and team selection, players must set up or defuse bombs, rescue or capture hostages or emerge from team death-match duels as winners."
It does sound a bit Counter-Strike-ish, doesn't it? Well, there's certainly nothing wrong with that.
And this description of the game's highway mission, from that same press release, sounds incredibly intriguing: "The highway mission represents a brand new challenge for all shooter fans: In a high-speed car chase a VIP needs to be either protected or taken out. In this mode, not only are aiming and tactics of great importance, but players’ driving skills are also put to the test. They have to make sure to avoid the helicopter, or find the RPG-7 and take it out."
Tactical Intervention is coming to Steam in August, where it will be free to download and play.
