The Next Counter-Strike is a GO
Fans wanted it, now Valve is delivering it. The next Counter-Strike, named Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, is the official successor to CS: Source. The game is in development at Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment, and has a release window in early 2012 for current consoles and Steam powered PC. The game will also be available to play during PAX Prime and the Eurogamer Expo, people are going to start getting csgo boost in order to get ready for the release.
According to the press release, “CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.” The simple mention of the return of Dust should be more than enough to get CS fans pumped, even to get hardware for playing the game like the best csgo gaming mouse.
“Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999,” said Doug Lombardi at Valve. “For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS’ award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac.”
More info on CS: GO will be available shortly. Our fingers are already tingly at the thought of playing it at PAX Prime in two weeks.
