Counter-Strike: Global Offensive *2012*
 
Is there really a new CS game going to be announced/released sometime soon? (=

Kotaku thinks so.

Mac Press Releases from Valve

An All New Counter-Strike Came Is Coming To Macs In 2012 | Cult of Mac
Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO).
Targeted for release via Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam (for PC and Mac) in early 2012, CS: GO will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched exactly 12 years ago (CS beta 1, August 1999).
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 Lombard, VP of Marketing 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 London Games Festival.

hey! i'm not old, i'm just older:p

thanks for posting this reoh, i'm going to shamelessly link it over to the CS forums:cool:

it would be nice, but as long as they dont just turn it into another BF, COD clone, all those new FPS's seem the same to me:w

keep the gameplay the same, just better graphics and different guns would be the go IMO,
the fact that its a very balanced game is what keeps people playing:D

cheers

yeah, the awp is very balanced.

kEv_ 13th August 2011 01:26 PM

lol when i say balanced i mean that everyone can have one,
you dont upgrade weapons armour etc so that new players dont have a massive disadvantage when starting out,
this is what keeps me from playing more BC2,
i get sick of emptying clips into people and not quite finishing them off,
then i die from 1-2 shots:mad:

basically it comes down to skill and practise, not just having better gear

i hate awps too, nothing better than knifing an awper:D

"I'm shooting it with rockets, but the helicopter just keeps swerving..."
"I'm shooting it with rockets, but the tank just won't die..."
"I'm shooting it with rockets, but the building won't collapse..."

Response to all 3: "Oh, your nub rockets suck"
