Counter Strike: Global Offensive



12 years ago, in a world of Quake and Unreal, Counter Strike came out as a mod to the original Half Life game.

Fresh off the press, Valve announces Counter Strike; Global Offensive! Not much is known about the game yet, aside from what is stated in the article. Will be playable at PAX and is aiming for a release in early 2012.

In Valve Time, expect it in late spring or early summer.

Oo, cool. Always liked counter-strike, and even used to be rather good at it when i was younger.

Can't say I'm much of a CS fan, but I do wonder how this one is going to play out. CS' design is so old-school, there's endless ways you could work on sequels. It could just as easily have replaced Call of Duty's games-mill if Activision owned it.

Super competitive multiplayer combat on the way or else it's not CS. This has extreme potential simply because of it's name.

Eh, I always thought Source was 1.6's predecessor. But I'm still pretty excited for what they will come up with, especially with new the new weapons. But most likely it'll just be a visual update of the old model though... they're probably going to play it safe.

You mean successor? Yeah, me too.

I wonder if anyone here used to play 1.5 as much as I did.

If you played far too much of it, then yes.

They should've called it Counter-Strike: Global Operatives Going On Great Offensives

CS: GO GO GO

I'm pretty excited about this. It will be interesting to see how this pans out on consoles, considering it looks like they're going with a completely digital release. I know I'm in!

So in case anybody missed it, Gabe Newall went to Germany for Gamescon, to talk about DOTA 2 (and its accompanying tourney), to "officially" unveil CS: GO (GO GO), and to delay Episode 3 some more.

Gaben talked about how GO is going to be a cross-platform gaming experience, which means we would be able to play with the prepubescents on the consoles. My memory hasn't been quite the same lately, but I saw a video during the G4TV interview with Gaben and now it's on the steam page. I can't remember if that video was there before, either way its there and it showcases a few of the graphics, which looks like it builds on CS's style, where it doesn't look like a TF2 mod or a COD rip-off. It also changes the store's interface drastically (taking a radial design rather then what it is now in CS:S). There's also a new batch of screenshots released, all viewable on the Steam Page.

Since I'm not at my computer right now, I cannot provide a link to the video where Geoff talks to Newall, but I'm sure with a little bit of searching you can find it on youtube or on gametrailers.
