Valve, also known as the best damn developer ever – not being bias or anything- recently announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) is targeted for release on August 21, 2012.
It will be available via the Playstation, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam for both mac and PC.
CS: GO expands upon the team-based action gameplay pioneered when Counter-Strike was launched almost 13 years ago.
CS: GO will be sold for approximately $15 on all platforms and feature new maps, characters and weapons for counterstrike players as well as updated version of classic maps . It also introduces new gameplay modes, leaderboards and a new way of matchmaking.
I got a chance to play this game at PAX East this year and, while i’m not a Counterstrike fan, had tons of fun!
