Tactical Ops Retail Shipping for PC
9:38 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Blue's News has spotted a new press release from Infogrames announcing the retail release for the PC of the extremely popular modification Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror.

This large mod for Unreal Tournament stirred up no small controversy with Mac fans when it was revealed that the boxed version would be PC-only, despite the fact that it should run perfectly well on the Mac. While the Tac Ops team has said publicly they are legally unable to release a Mac installer, many fans have promised to create one as soon as the full version arrives. Here's the scoop on what's in the game:

Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror challenges players to battle as a member of Special Forces or as a Terrorist through a wide variety of mission objectives, including rescuing hostages, destroying strategic targets and eliminating the other team. The game features more than 30 hyper-realistic maps, an arsenal of more than 20 devastating real-world weapons, more than 11 reinvented character models and skins and a completely revamped GUI and menu system.

Using Unreal technology, Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror brings the existing "Tac Ops" community improved textures, redesigned maps, revamped character skins and weapons, improved code and several all new locations. The wildly popular modification for Unreal Tournament has been reconstructed to create an remarkable stand-alone squad-based first person shooter.

It will be interested to see how this mod-gone-retail does in the market. We'll also keep an eye out for any Mac installers that pop up to bring the PC version to Apple's hardware.
