Critical Point: Incursion is a standalone game created with Epic Games' Unreal Development Kit. Incursion is a semi-realistic, arcade-like first-person shooter combining tactical gameplay with arcade-style speed.Utilising a wide variety of modern weaponry and set in fantastically rendered locations, the Mercenaries and Special Forces meet at a critical point! In a rush-based mode as seen in first-person shooters such as CoD4, Battlefield 3, Counter Strike and TO:AoT, teams are given level-specific objectives in round-based scenarios! CP:I is aimed at a large player base, offering a huge platform for competitive clan and league play, allowing individuals to shine and capture their glory regardless of how many hours they have played. It accentuates skill vs luck, aiming vs spraying, etc. We differ from the competition by having no unlockables, no RPG's, claymores, tanks, jets or other vehicles. Just PURE infantry combat action!!

Level codename: Area 3 media release plus a poll.. have your say on the level name and check out the stunning pictures!

Dear community,

In June we released a teaser shot of our unnamed map, which was further mentioned in our Q&A Answers as Codename: Area 3.

This map is being developed by level designer Matt "mjl86" Lefevere with the majority of assetts, environment art designed and created by Peter "pAldred" Aldred & Jason "midwinterdreams" Matthews.

We are very excited and proud to show you this level in its near completed state (90% developed with just Final playtests and Sound Assets to be plugged in).
All credits will follow.

Area 3

Scene Setting: It's early morning, deep in the forest of an American mountain range. The fog is dense, birds are singing, and there's a crisp chill in the air. The luxurious mansion, owned by one of the military's highest-ranking generals, seems deceptively peaceful from the outside. Inside, though, is another story.

Scenario: Mercenaries have taken the general and his family hostage for $2 million ransom. They demand to be paid immediately and threaten to execute the family otherwise. With no time for a lengthy negotiation process, the SWAT team is sent in to handle the situation. Their orders? Rescue the hostages by any means necessary. They pull their SWAT truck into the driveway and enter the lush courtyard, not knowing what to expect...

Top Overview

We are pleased to announce that this map will be shipped with the Tactical Assault public beta! However, since Area 3 doesn't sound like a fitting name for a map this awesome, we need your help!

We have narrowed down the choices to our top 5 and we are placing the final decision up to you, the TA community. The poll can be found on our website here will remain open for the next two weeks (till 28th August) and the most voted choice will be revealed and become the official name of the level!

We hope you enjoyed the stunning work of our team and happy voting!

I remember this map, its turning out well every time.

"Haven" seems fitting considering its surrounded by trees, and an obscure mansion just sitting out in the middle of no where gives off that sense of insecurity.
