    Default Swat5 For Pc

    i read this and i think im gona cry ......................

    An overwhelming majority of you would like to see a 'SWAT 5', but will this happen and will it be the game you desire? We analyse the evidence.

    The results of our latest poll are fairly conclusive. Asked where they would like to see the SWAT series head next, a whopping 71% of 10-David readers said a brand spanking new SWAT game: a 'SWAT 5'. The much-mooted patch for the Stetchkov Syndicate got less than 10% of your vote, indicating that SWAT4's problems are far more deep-rooted than a few annoying bugs.

    So, will there be a SWAT5? To be honest, no-one knows for sure. Barring an unprecedented series of events, there will be no more official work on SWAT4, so naturally enough attention turns to a new game. Our sources indicate no work has started on any form of new SWAT game, but that doesn't mean there won't be one. VUG still holds the exclusive license to the 'SWAT' name in gaming and have registered SWAT5.com.

    If and when the time is right VUG can commission and make a new SWAT game, but the only question then is what the game will be like. Will it be the true sequel to SWAT3 that so many of us desire? There is a fascinating debate on this subject in running in several threads on 10-David, but the main points are in (of all places) the Canadian Army is Hooked on SWAT4
    story. Here's a snippet from Community Co-ordinator Grunt (speaking as an informed fan and not in any official representative capacity of VUG):

    "I would like you to remember that SWAT3 is what it is because at the time it was hot and mainstream. For SWAT4 basically the same deal counts. Time changes, what was hot in 1998 is not in 2005/2006 and if there is ever going to be a SWAT5, keep in mind that things will change again, look at what is hot right now and think for yourself. Will there be another SWAT3 ever?" [MORE]

    On that basis we are just as likely to get an addictive super-spec tactical simulator as a GST Mark II console flop - as desired by precisely 0% of you in our poll - it just depends on what the suits at VUG feel will make the most money at a given moment in the future. Empathy for a loyal group of fans does not come into it, unless one of you happens to be a rather rich Russian billionaire with some money to burn.

    The fact that the same number of respondents said they would like to see a major update for SWAT3 as SWAT4 is one of the most interesting results of our poll. Although SWAT4 was better loved by the general gaming press and (initially) sold better, SWAT3's longevity, realism and spirit mean it continues to hold a place in the community's heart. In a post on our forums, DeAdMaN claims "I went online last night in Swat 4, [there was] a total of 40 Players on... I then went to SWAT 3 and there were 45 players."

    It is almost certainly safe to say SWAT3 is too old for a new official expansion, but maybe what we, as a community, would like most of all is not a new SWAT5. Instead, the rather simple option of a time machine, so we can wind the clock back to the moment when work on the 2.2 patch for SWAT3 halted to switch focus to 'TOP' - the disaster that turned out to be Urban Justice - which began the spiral to where we are today.
