Counter Strike: Global Offensive announced by Valve
Yes that’s right folks! Counter Strike on consoles. Surprised? Well don’t be, because it already made an appearance on the Xbox. Valve has announced a latest version of the game named, Counter Strike: Global Offensive. It will be available on PSN, XBL, PC and Mac early next year.
“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.”
The game is being developed by Seattle based Hidden Path Entertainment with some help from Valve. The release date is scheduled for next year. You can visit the official Steam page for more information.
