Counter Strike: Global Offensive Details

Counter-Srike has always been one of those games that you can never get sick of. There are no fancy kill streak rewards, no prestige ranks, and no fancy red dot scopes. Just a man, a gun and some hostages to save. Part of Count-Strike's lore comes from its simplicity and the cut-throat competition between online players. Never in my gaming life have I been completely satisfied playing 2 maps over and over again like I have with Dust 2 and Office.

Now, Valve has announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, set to release in early 2012. There is something I must make perfectly clear though. This is not Counter-Strike 2. It is more of an update and a facelift to the already successful franchise. You can still expect the same unforgiving and competitive gameplay of the original. Rather than making drastic changes, Valve is making smaller updates and more user friendly additions. Some of the new additions include: Matchmaking, cross-platform integration, new maps and a ranking system. The game is also set to release on Xbox360, PS3 and PC. PC users will be able to participate in a beta coming up in October.
