Tactical Intervention

Prepare for a Tactical Intervention on March 28th, open beta in a couple of weeks

Here's the good news: Tactical Intervention, the free-to-play FPS from Counter-Strike co-creator Minh Le, is launching on March 28th. It will be preceded by an open beta starting March 14th, and a closed beta kicking off this coming Monday. The bad news is that, until they find a European publisher, the game will only be launching in the US. Booooooo. If only there was a way to pretend to be from another country on the internet - but alas, no such thing exists. Rappel beneath the break for further game details (the word 'rappel' was a devastatingly subtle clue).

Tactical Intervention beta to hit Europe in May

Tactical Intervention has had a lengthy development schedule, but European players will soon be able to try out the promising-looking shooter this Summer, starting May 6.

The game is developed by Counter-Strike co-creator Minh Le, and features Terrorist v Counter-Terrorist team play but with a few added features, such as helicopter repelling and human-shield taking. The game had a US closed beta last year, but its conclusion did not lead to the game's release. Interested players can sign up for the European closed beta at the game's official website.
