Tactical Intervention creeps into open beta
If you've been clamoring for an opportunity to play Tactical Intervention, now's your chance. The shooter, designed by Counter-Strike co-developer Minh "Gooseman" Le, has just entered open beta testing, which should be great news for anyone who missed their chance at scoring one of the 6,000 closed beta keys we gave away in March.

Accessing the open beta is as simple as finding the game client within the Steam store and downloading the gratis 4.1GB file. Tactical Intervention makes its official debut on September 12 as a free-to-play game, so pulling down the game's open beta incarnation won't save you any cash, but should save you the hassle of having to pull down the client later.

Alongside the open beta announcement, publisher 1337 Games has also revealed two new maps slated to appear in the final version of Tactical Intervention, dubbed "Monaco" and "Airport." These scenarios will not be present in the open beta as the development team is still adding the final touches to the locations, but 1337 Games promises that they will deliver "new gameplay and surprises."
