Upon release Counter Strike, the Half Life mode turned franchise, set a new standard for competitive high skill-ceiling FPS. The original mod was created by just two individuals including Minh Le, who after leaving Valve went to South Korea to develop a new FPS called Tactical Intervention. The new FPS marks a transition away from the single spawn last man standing style of play Le developed for Counter Strike.
Instead, Tactical Intervention focuses on offering a variety of alternatives including modes more focused around hostage situations which admittedly felt like low priority side objectives in Counter Strike maps like cs_office. There is even a VIP escort mode which has players escorting a VIP in a vehicle to a designated drop point while terrorist attempt to catch up to the VIP, eliminate him and secure the briefcase he is carrying.
Overall, the FPS focuses on giving players options and opportunities to take advantage of in order to complete objectives. Players can call in attack dogs to aid them, and even make use of tactical rappel ropes to gain the upper hand on the opposing force. Terrorists can even use cowering civilians scattered around the map as human shields, making team-play and coordination a key component of Tactical Intervention.
A small closed beta will kick off on March 4th through the 8th with the official open beta beginning on March 14th and the full North American launch scheduled for March 28th.
