Counter-Strike:Global Offensive

Post by Brutus »

About the Game
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 12 years ago.

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.

"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."

CS: GO is being developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment. The title is targeted for release in early 2012 and will be playable at this year's PAX Prime and Eurogamer Expo.
Looks like there will be a new CS game early next year. I'm hoping they don't mess it up to bad.

I read a couple articles about this after seeing your post. If things stay as they are now, it sounds like they will be changing gameplay fairly significantly, at least as far as cs and de go. I don't know that I would be any more inclined to play, though. At the time CS:S came out, I was fairly disappointed that there weren't any real changes to the game, but I don't know if this takes it far enough. Personally, I think Valve might do well to take a page from Dice's handbook, and get some bigger maps with more objectives, maybe control points that had to be secured (for example: sniper positions). Of course, that would make the game something other than the CS we have all come to know and love.

I just think that vanilla CS would be more playable if the pace was slowed a bit and there were multiple objectives.

Been playing the beta and it's a fun game. Just found out that they added "Arms Race" mode, which is Gun Game. I think they have it set to turbo, so after I try it, my suggestion will be to add a non-turbo mode.

I like CS:S more then CS:GO.... A lot more. I got a beta key and played, but didn't really like.
