Counter-Strike Gets Some Serious Competition This Spring

This Spring sees the release of Tactical Intervention on the PC, a game noteworthy because its development has been led by one of the co-creators of Counter-Strike. So the fact the two games look similar is no coincidence.

Former Valve staffer Minh Le, who has been working on the game in Korea for a few years now, will be publishing the game in North America through OGPlanet, with a beta to kick off next month.

While Valve's own Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is an iterative update to the venerable old franchise, Tactical Intervention looks far more ambitious, including some unexpected stuff like driving sequences.

This looks pretty neato! I've always been interested in CS, but I just don't have the time for a game of it's commitment. It's hardly a casual shooter, it can be fairly intimidating to new players.

This could be more of the same, it likely will have that same level of commitment required, but the driving and vehicles made it look a little more open, so possibly more forgiving. Dunno.
