Three and a half years on from its announce and a good six years after development began, the new game from Counter-strike creator Minh Le is finally going public.

Tactical Intervention will host an open beta from March 14 to 28, Joystiq reports. No release date has been set.

The free-to-play shooter will be microtransaction supported, with players able to enhance their gear, but Le hasn’t yet locked down the details. He’s planning regular content drops with free maps.

Tactical Intervention is a kind of successor to the Valve shooter, in that it’s packed full of various modes like Hostage and VIP Escort, things implemented back when Counter-strike was still a mod but later trimmed away from its current state.

The Joystiq article is packed with new details of the heretofore only vaguely sketched shooter, like that agents can spawn anywhere on the map allowing for tactical approaches, command attack dogs to patrol and use vehicles. It also gives insight into why Le might have left Valve and Counter-strike behind.

Sing up for the beat with publisher OGPlanet.
