Counter-Strike Creator Announces Tactical Intervention Launch
The co-creator of Counter-Strike, Minh Le, also known as “Gooseman”, has announced that his first game since Counter-Strike is set for release on March 28. Titled Tactical Intervention, the game is developed as a free-to-play online shooter with a short period of open beta that begins on March 14.
Players who partake in the beta will be able to experience the game two weeks early and aid the developer in putting the finishing touches on the title.
Far beyond a simple adaptation of Counter-Strike, Tactical Intervention is set to offer high speed chases, attack dogs, and tactical rappel ropes. Like CS, the game’s focus is on team play.
The developer says that he wasn’t too satisfied with how the hostage rescue and VIP modes in the original Counter-Strike turned out, so he plans to expand upon those in the new game. It’s little surprise that Minh Le, who also created the movie-inspired Action Quake 2 mod, would make a strong attempt to bring new innovations to the online shooter genre.
