Fan-favorite tactical shooter SWAT 4 comes to GOG


Whoa, they actually did it!

The folks at GOG.com have once again worked their magic to make a classic PC game more easily accessible. As of today, Irrational Games' tactical squad shooter SWAT 4 is now available from the digital distributor for $10, and it even comes with the Stetchkov Syndicate expansion packed in.

For the die-hard fan who's already seen it all and gone back for more, GOG.com held a Q&A with developers Paul Hellquist and Bill Gardner. Asked about the game's sustained appeal more than a decade after release, Hellquist attributed it to the fact you play as a "civilian police officer protecting your city, not a soldier overseas or killing everything that moves," and the environmental storytelling, which left "lasting impressions with fans, like the cultist compound with graves in the basement, or the split-level ranch with the old lady whose son is a serial killer keeping women in the septic tank."

I hope Rainbow Six Siege players give SWAT 4 a real chance.
