CS: GO Trailers Plant The Bomb

By Jim Rossignol on August 26th, 2011.


Two versions of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive trailer are below – an “online edit” and what appears to be a fuller version of the trailer, possibly from Gamescom. It really is a hi-fi remake of the Source game, judging by the movement and combat physics in this trailer, but there are a few changes evident. There’s also a bit of a feature list, including “cross-platform play”, which brings back memories of Sega getting me to play against Dreamcast owners at Quake III, when I was on a mouse and keyboard. Goodness me.

Have A Play Of CS:GO At PAX And E2

By Lewie Procter on August 19th, 2011.


According to the official twitter account for Counter Strike: Global Offensive, they’re going to be demoing their new game at PAX next week, and at Eurogamer Expo next month. Not only that, but if you turn up to give it a try, you’ll get given a key for the beta. Sounds like a good chance for us to have an RPS vs Readers showdown to me, although if/when I get killed, I’m going to blame it on lag.

Any of you lot going to PAX and/or Eurogamer Expo?

Counter-Strike: GO Explained Properly

By Alec Meer on August 15th, 2011.

This picture's gonna get a lot of use over the next few months, I fear

Friday saw the sudden news of a brand new, all-formats Counter-Strike game, which in PC gaming news terms is probably the equivalent of simultaneously swearing in a crowdpleasing new president and announcing a world war. The coming months will be characterised by both excitement and rage, I don’t doubt. What we don’t know is much about it, other than that it’s broadly going to be CS with new stuff. Turns out, Valve have been quietly showing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (I don’t know how long it’s going to be until I stop initially typing ‘Global Agenda’) to pro-gamers to get their thoughts on how it’s shaping up. Craig ‘Torbull’ Levine from ESEA is one of the lucky few, and he’s shared a few details on what to expect from a game Valve are claiming will fit alongside, rather than replace, CS 1.6 and CS:S.

Revealed: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

By Alec Meer on August 12th, 2011.

CS Lewis' more active cousin

As rumoured this morning, there really is a new Counter-Strike coming. And it’s not some side-project: this sounds like a major sequel-come-relaunch of Counter-Strike for a new generation of manshoot fans. Valve have just solemnly and officially declared its existence to the world – Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, aka CS: GO, is indeed its war-lovin’ name. It will feature new maps, modes, weapons, characters and social gaming features such as matchmaking and leaderboards, on top of assorted updates to tried and tested stuff like de_dust.

It’s due on PC and on the two fatter consoles. Which, I think, means this is Valve looking Call of Duty square in the eye and telling it to step outside.
