505 Games S.r.l. today announce the release of Takedown: Red Sabre for PC.

Takedown: Red Sabre is realistic, closed-quarters, squad-based tactical FPS. A thinking manrsquo;s shooter. The player that takes things slow and plans their tactics carefully will overcome the player who runs in with guns blazing. Close-quarters battle brings the fight inside, as you see SWAT teams or SOF units taking down small numbers of dangerous adversaries. Non-linear environments allow for multiple routes and tactics and add replayability.

Takedown: Red Sabre is a project born out of a Kickstarter-funded project by start-up studio Serellan which is made up of veteran developers whose many credits include tactical shooters such as Ghost Recon, SWAT and SoCom.

Developed by Serellan, Takedown: Red Sabre is available now forpound;11.99. An Xbox Live Arcade version is also due for release in the coming weeks.
