Minh Le's first-person shooter Tactical Intervention releasing this month; open beta to begin March 14.
An open beta for Tactical Intervention will be held March 14-25 in the lead up to the game's full release.
Like Counter-Strike, Tactical Intervention is a competitive shooter pitting terrorists against peacekeepers. Gamers can take part in deathmatch, Hostage Rescue, and VIP Escort gametypes. In addition, a variety of real-world weaponry used by counterterrorists and insurgents alike will be available to players.
Tactical Intervention will also include a number of different vehicles, with drivers and riders alike able to spray bullets at their enemies.

have you guys considered releasing this for tablets?
cos, you know the graphics looks like something the Samsung Galaxy or Ipad 2 & 3 could run without breaking a sweat :)
If they beefed the graphics to today's standards - then they'd lose a huge chunk of their player base. Not everyone keeps up with the latest graphics cards every six months.
I thought this was dead.
I'm glad it's not, we need a new shooter with a higher skill ceiling/learning curve like CS, that hasn't been mastered by pretty much everyone.
I used to be a hardcore CS player but getting back into the game is too much of a chore, most of the community has been playing for years and never allowed rust to accumulate.
Really looks innovative! Like the part in the trailer where you're actually in a ffffing car chase.. sweet, nice how they intgrated that into multiplayer. Can't wait to start Tactictally Intervening on some d-bags. : D
1) the amount of bitchiness in the comments is TOO DAMN HIGH
2) the graphics could look better, but then again the source engine can be run by a pizza box at this point so fair enough
3) gameplay does look fun
@MW2ismygame True. Counter Strike was always about the gameplay anyways, graphics were irrelevant.
@joshmonus haha. So much misunderstanding.
BECAUSE UNLIKE YOU i am old enough to remember those games, where i bought a game on a 5.25 inch floppy and got a book with it wich the game kept refering to for the story line.
And those games had more dept into them then most games now even more then f****** skyrim
Just signed up,and who give two shits about the graphics? FUN used to count with games and this will have.
Looks like a lot of fun and it'll run on a basic PC set up.
I bet it's a hit. Wonder how it'll make money though? In game advertising, pay for guns/maps?
I agree the graphics are quite sub-par. But Counter-strike has never been about graphics and more about gameplay. I'll wait till I play it to judge it.
@leandrro once every person on the earth is gonna be able to afford a 1000+$ gaming PC the source engine will die out till that time some poeple will be nice and give low system req. games
@HADES2001 @leandrro my 200 dollar PC runs counter strike global offesinve at 65 fps average, and battlefield 3 on low @ 25-28 fps like a PS3 does, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvDRNo--ZqM&feature=g-list&list=PLUA_CK7guz97-BcrUvoclJWl0NJ5QIOqa
Holy crap, most of the comments are about graphics, what do graphics add to games nowadays?! We see dozens of forgettable games with stunning visuals, in the core experience of enjoinment, what does that really add? It's been a while since a real AAA game came around, and the most respected out there, didn't got their position 'cause of the way they look.
@macaque12 Look, it's all about the gameplay we get it. Why not play with good graphics while we're enjoying the gameplay? Graphics matter too.
@Parthunax ok smart guy why dont you make a AWESOME gameplay game AND good graphics.. till that time that you know how much work both cost please stop talking about this subject
@macaque12 yeah, thats why they made battlefield 3 looking as good as minecraft
Everyone will pass it off as another run-of-the-mill free-to-play second-rate Counter-Strike clone(of which there are literally dozens)... which is ironic given who created this game. I'm sure it will play as such too, even if CS's creator helmed the game.
@DownHill911 The game runs that way for a reason. Easier engine to run on a basic PC means more will play it. Doesn't take a rocket science to see that.
Problem is that what you call basic PC, I would call pointless PC.
Reasons: Even consoles can produce better graphics.
If used as non-gaming PC you pretty much have machine size of old TV (cube-brick shape) with performance of tablets from 2014(I hope)
PCs evolve too fast, you are better of selling it on ebay and add some cash for new one rather than keeping until it's value is 0 and becomes only burden which takes too much space.
IF you think about how CS source looked like when released, this is like going back in time.
