Tactical Ops Interview, Release Info
8:38 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Over the past several months, the Tactical Ops team has been working towards the next major release of their realistic teamplay modification for Unreal Tournament. Details about the beta 2.0 release have been kept very quiet, but as the release date nears, the team plans a slow leak of details to whet the appetite of Tactical Ops fanatics. Stomped puts the squeeze on the team in their recent interview with three members of the Tactical Ops team: Shag (lead programmer), Rojazz (graphic artist, designer), and Flux (lead level designer). Here, Shag and Rojazz comment on the release date:

Stomped: What is the current status of the next version of the mod? When do you expect it to be released?

Shag: It's really not that easy to estimate...hehehe.I learned, through releases, that it takes usually twice the time estimated to do the work properly. Currently I would say that the status is at 60%, and the release date is scheduled for late February. But it's subject to change of course.

Rojazz: That means it could come out before or after that date.just depends on how much free time we have.

The interview also features 13 exclusive screenshots. On a related note, the Tactical Ops website has also been updated with in-game screen shots.

For the uninitiated, the Tactical Ops mod pits two teams (Special Forces versus Terrorists) armed with real-world weapons, against each other. Teamwork is emphasized as each team must complete a certain objective or eliminate the opposing team. If you've ever wanted to play CounterStrike for the PC on your Mac, look no further. Head over to MacGameFiles for the download of the development version of this 'mod.'
