With an aim to bring back some apparent "nostalgic feelings" from earlier online shooters, TO4: Tactical Operations from TacByte is now in Early Access.

After testing it myself, it's basically a slightly different take on Counter-Strike built in Unreal Engine. Now, I get the idea from this game is built on another classic (Tactical Ops) that was developed around the same time as the original Counter-Strike, but what's the point here to TO4: Tactical Operations? Where's their gameplay hook? I'm not seeing one.

Not to be too harsh on it, I like to give every game a chance especially since it's unfinished but I can't see this finding a player-base. I will keep an eye on it, if they suddenly gain a player-base with a good idea in an update I will let you know.

You can find TO4: Tactical Operations free on Steam.

This is a very niche game, I love the old Tactical Ops, I will try it for the nostalgia, but as you said, CS:GO is free to play with a HUGE player base, it's hard to receive attention.

Off:I would love some UE4 arena shooter...

I see a "tactical" fps game and I dream about something like Swat 4 :/

This seems more like a CS go clone than anything else.

Completely failing to see how this differs from CS. Unless I'm missing some massive obvious difference, I'm not sure how much sense this game makes.

It would be fun to play just to get a different feeling of the gameplay and different maps but that will not be a game to gain a stable playerbase.
