Counter-Strike co-creator Minh “Gooseman” Le and developers Fix Korea is launching free-to-play game Tactical Intervention.
Tactical Intervention is the project Minh “Gooseman” Le , the co-creator of Counter-Strike, part of developers Fix Korea is designing. It’s inevitable that when a game is developed by someone who co-created one of the most influential shooters, they will receive a lot of scrutiny and comparison for their new project. What will be different? How much will it still feel like what he’s created before? Will it be like Call of Duty? These are the important questions that run through our minds.
After looking at the game and a trailer, it’s safe to say that it still functions like CS but introduces different modes that certainly mix things up. Take the Highway Mission, for example. You’re in a car as either a driver or passenger and you can shoot the runaway VIP as they escape in their vehicle. You’re able to peek your head out the window to fire also, but you may get your head banged up a bit. It’s an interesting concept.
There are some concepts that still look dated; like aiming down the sights. You couldn’t do that in CS and it doesn’t look like you can do it now. However, as a free-to-play game, it certainly looks like something that tries to freshen up the genre, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to have the same level of appeal as CS.
But here’s a trailer for you to check out. You may catch some things I missed.
Tactical Intervention is set to launch March 28 in North America and there will also be an open beta test on March 14. It’s more like early playing than an open beta, but I’m sure the guys at Fix Korea will be taking constructive feedback.
