Counter-Strike: Global Offensive videos brings joy to fans, old and new

By  •  August 17, 2012

Let us take you back in time. The year? 2001. When it comes to multiplayer gaming, the PC platform is king. Even up to present day, PC fans will still argue that it is the superior platform. They plea their cases, arguing that playing with a mouse and keyboard will allow you to have better gameplay and graphics are superior. While all of this can be true, there is one thing that you had to combat when you played on a PC: Hackers.  Does the terms “Aimbots”, “White wallers”, “Speedhacks” ring a bell?

Nothing was more frustrating as an up-and-coming gamer to enter a server and see that fellow players were running through the maps at high speeds and getting headshots with a pistol from the entire length of the map away. One of the worst culprits with hacking was in Valve’s Half-Life Counterstrike. Even after Valve’s VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat) was released, it felt like you could not find one server that did not have at least one hacker in it.

Where is all of this going in terms of XBLA? Well, the folks over at Valve and Hidden Path Entertainmnent are looking to revive our love for the game by releasing: Counter-Strike Global Offensive, for the XBLA, PSN, and Steam network. The developers are tickling our nostalgia bone by offering updated versions of the eight classic maps (De_Dust, Aztec to name a few), as well as adding eight more maps. As seen in the videos after the break, the game has made significant advancements, and at 1200MSP is a steal for old and new fans of the Counter-Strike series.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive screenshots and release date

By  •  March 5, 2012

Valve has unveiled a fresh batch of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive screenshots that capture in stunning high-definition a few of the many awesome-macho-military-man poses you can pull when CS:GO launches this summer on XBLA. Stare with primal rage down the ironsights of a shotgun, take a moment to gaze pensively into the camera whilst clutching a grenade and, er, squat in the corner? Of course, that release date heralds from the mouth of Valve and so translates to a tentative pre-2020 release. Pew pew pew!

Valve and Hidden Path Entertainment have announced that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will include two new modes based on the popular “Gun Game” mod for Counter-Strike: Source. Arsenal: Arms Race and Arsenal: Demolition are based on the simple concept of working your way up the weapon chain. You start with lesser weapons such as pistols, but each kill you get nets you a new weapon. The objective is to win the race to the top by working your way through each and every weapon. The addition of these two new modes is also adding eight previously unannounced maps to the game. Valve and Hidden Path are working with the original creators of the mod to make sure that the Global Offensive iterations of Arsenal mode are the best iterations of the mode to date.

Valve has also provided us with nine new screenshots of the game which can be viewed after the jump. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is currently scheduled to assault XBLA next spring.
