Default Valve Confirms New Counter-Strike



Quote:
Instead of finally announcing Half-Life 3, Valve has confirmed suspicions something was up with the Counter-Strike franchise the studio has left alone for a few years now.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a brand-new installment being developed in conjunction with Hidden Path Entertainment, the developers behind Defense Grid.
It's been 12 years since Counter-Strike first burst onto the scene as a Half-life mod, but it returns early next year on PC, Mac, Xbox Live arcade and Playstation network (yes, consoles--cue the angry PC crowd!).
If you're at the Penny Arcade Expo later this month, though, you'll get to play it far ahead of release.
Valve hasn't released any screen shots of the game yet, only the logo. The studio said Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will feature "new maps, characters, and weapons," "updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.)," and "new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more."

i've been liking the klepek addition to giantbomb more and more, they went from having no news at all to having the best news. and as for the game, it sounds interesting. i wouldn't mind that kind of game as a console downloadable.

I lost most of my teen years to this game, look forward to losing most of my 20's too.

debut trailer

seems like a nice balance of keeping the things that make it counterstrike and make it great while still modernizing

omg cant wait.......... been playing it since the first betas came out in 1998-99.... obviously got bored out in 2003-04 somewhere... but still play it from time to time

all that shit you see today is CS wannabes (Call of Duty, MW2 and shit.. not Battlefield series tho, they are completely original).... Valve will come back and show how its done...

Just bought this game + the beta for only $13.49


Counter Strike and Valve are the GOATs in their respective fields. EA and other greedy companies can learn a thing or two..
