Stealth shooter IGI 2: Covert Strike has received a realism boost in the shape of former SAS operative Chris Ryan, who has become the military consultant to the game, which is due out on PC this November. The chances are you recognise the name but can't place it, which is probably about right for a stealthy SAS operative. Chris Ryan is famed for his involvement in a botched eight-man operation behind enemy lines during The Gulf War, Bravo Two Zero. He later recounted the details of his escape in his book, The One That Got Away, and went on to become a best-selling author with a number of books to his name at the time of writing. Chris' input into IGI 2 will be to advise developer Inner Loop on the accuracy of the game's covert tactics and 30-plus arsenal of weapons. Chris will also front a series of videos providing tactical advice, presumably in-game. Related Feature - IGI 2: Covert Strike screenshots
