Excalibur takes a leap of faith with tactical shooting game CTU: Counter Terrorism Unit venturing into uncharted territory of this popular gaming genre. Developed for Excalibur by Odin Games – the Brazilian developer whose first product was Enforcer – CTU development process began two years ago. Pitched as a spiritual successor to the classic SWAT games, CTU demands patience and tactical judgement to succeed against overwhelming odds. Designed as a first person shooter but encouraging tense and tactical gameplay, command your team to secure the safety of hostages.
A dozen terrorist activities take place across several locations and the player can choose from some of the finest weapons and tools including the third eye tactical camera. On-line multi-player and single player modes need the right judgement call in the field to determine the difference between life and death!
Deployed to several dangerous locations to detain a rising criminal threat the scenarios in this game are uncannily associated with real-life situations we find ourselves in today. Anyone can fire a gun, but there are only a few who can bring down a suspect with intimidating presence, and force them to lay down their weapons and surrender.
At your disposal are a selection of modern weapons and tools to aid the fight against terrorism. These include the snake cam (used to see what dangers may face you behind a closed door), the night vision goggles, riot shield and three types of grenade. Based on performance for each mission, players will be awarded with money which can be spent on new weapons, tools and hiring new team members.
AI team mates can be ordered to open doors, cover locations, move to area, use snake cams and an assortment of other tasks. Another big exciting feature is the online multi-player for up to four friends in five player online co-op.
CTU: Counter Terrorism Unit releases February 25, 2015 for PC on Steam.
