Critical Ops is a tactical first person shooter developed by Critical Force Entertainment and functions as the sequel and successor to Critical Strike Portable, which was released on August 14, 2015 on the browser version of Facebook[3], but then later moved to Facebook Gameroom on August 30, 2016. It was released on September 30, 2015 for Google Play.[4] The official release for the App Store had been soft launched for selected countries on May 2, 2016.[5]

Like its predecessor, it is primarily based off the game mechanics of Counter Strike. However, Critical Ops has more detailed graphics, bigger maps and more weapons, along with the addition of weapon skins. The game currently has two selectable gamemodes, twenty two weapons and five maps available. Critical Ops will not include maps from other games such as Dust 2 from Counter Strike or any maps from Critical Strike Portable, but possibly will support community maps. Critical Force Entertainment seeks to add more gamemodes to the game, but will not give any dates as to exactly when they will be implemented.[6] The PC platform of Critical Ops is scheduled to be shut down by the end of summer 2017, due to it taking huge amounts of resources and time for a fraction of the total amount of players and due to Critical Force's primary focus on mobile.[7]

DevelopmentEdit

Critical Force Entertainment began testing early stages of Critical Ops during the final update stages of Critical Strike Portable and released pre-alpha gameplay footage. Then on April 5, 2015, Critical Force Entertainment began accepting selected requests from players to test out the game and try to find and fix any bugs located. They also wanted the game to be as stable as possible before the alpha release. During that time, it was referred to as Critical Strike Portable Sequel.

As popularity grew, Critical Ops then entered open alpha phase merely for players to give feedback on the game on September 30, 2015 on Android and on the browser version.

On March 9, 2016, 100 closed alpha invites were sent to selected emails for testing of the iOS build.[1] Five days later, on March 15, 2016, another 100 invites were sent.[2] Eventually, soft launches began on May 2, 2016 starting with Singapore and later on, other countries.[8]

On August 30, 2016, the game moved all following updates after patch 0.6.0.7 from the browser version to Facebook Gameroom due to an increasing number of browsers dropping NPAPI plugins, including Unity Web Player, the one Critical Ops ran on.[9] Then on October 19, 2016, the browser version was removed completely leaving only a link to Facebook Gameroom.[10]

On May 14, 2017, Critical Force announced that the game would become exclusive to mobile platforms explaining that supporting the PC version took too much time and resources and added that they wanted to be the top mobile first person shooter game.

Gameplay Edit

Critical Ops retains the same objective as Critical Strike Portable; to eliminate the opposing team. Players can choose to be either Counter-Terrorists or Terrorists. An initial buying intermission is given before a match starts and when it ends, players can start hunting for enemy players.

Players are currently given two gamemodes to play on:

  1. Defuse: A scenario where the Terrorists try to plant the C4. The Counter-Terrorists are assigned to stop it. The game can also end once all enemy players are eliminated.
  2. Deathmatch: Teams are assigned to contribute to their total kill count and raise it higher than the enemy until time runs out.

A main menu shop is included where players can purchase credits (or earn them through Missions) to open skin packs to get weapon skins by random. 

Much of the controls remain the same.
