Starting out as a mod for Unreal Tournament back in 1999, Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror stole many gamer’s hearts and quickly gained a substantial playerbase. The very positive reception eventually led to the announcement of a stand-alone version of the game, which is now known as the ‘retail version’.
In 2002, the retail version of the game was released by Atari. The last official patch (3.4.0) made by the original developers, Kamehan Studios, was released in 2003. In 2004, Atari granted permission for the Tactical Ops community to continue development of the game which resulted in the last unofficial patch (3.5.0) released in 2005.
Both versions (3.4.0 and 3.5.0) are still played today. Our Tactical Ops servers opened their gates on June 1st, 2010.
