Minh "Gooseman" Le's latest project, the free-to-play FPS Tactical Intervention, is announced for closed beta. According to our records it will be the third closed beta. Visitors at the German games trade fair gamescom can check it out from August 22nd onwards. Open beta is set for August 29th. The shooter will be available on Steam.
It seems that the Odyssey for Minh Le and his team at FIX Korea will end on August 29th. The first closed beta test was conducted in 2011 with publisher Mayn Games. After some testing in Europe Minh Le went into hiatus and resurfaced with a polished version in 2013. OGPlanet released the open beta in March and soon after announced that it decided to shut down Tactical Intervention.
Developer FIX Korea has now entered into a third partnership with publisher 1337 Games who will coordinate the launch on Steam. From August 22nd on, gamescom visitors will have the opportunity to intensively test Tactical Intervention. Tactics fans who cannot make it to Cologne should keep an eye on the official Facebook page of the action-packed free-to-play shooter: In August, players will have the chance to obtain closed beta keys at their Facebook page.
