Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Valve today announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, an updated title due out early next year for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, PC, and Mac.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive features new maps, characters, and weapons as well as 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 Lombardi, 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."

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is being developed by Valve in conjunction with Hidden Path Entertainment. The game will be playable at PAX Prime this month and the Eurogamer Expo 2011.

It's been a while !

Edit : Wrong trailer

VALVE ANNOUNCES COUNTER-STRIKE: GLOBAL OFFENSIVE (CS: GO)
Quote:
Next Gen Console, PC, and Mac Release Targeted for Early 2012

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 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."

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 Eurogamer Expo 2011.

For more information, please visit the CS: GO Steam page

Well coloured me surprised, I was starting to lose faith we'd seeing another CS but damn this just kinda overshadows alot of games and I mena alot.
I pretty much played this religiously for years, a simple concept to to the bomb defuse and yet totally enaging that you could play for hours on end without getting bored of it.

But I do have some worries about how this new one will be handled, theres bound to be talk about whether or not it will conform to suit the masses of CoDers

I enjoyed Counterstrike when it was new. It did seem like we lost a lot of map makers during that period (I must have hundreds of maps for old Jedi FPS games, Quake, etc).
I've been much less impressed with FPSs lately though CoD4 is pretty much the standard for our LAN games. I also liked the first Ghost Recon (except for the stupid slope geometry issues that seem to plague many FPS games - its a 15deg slope you can't walk up it).

Given the trends of MMOs and FPSs..... I'm not expecting a turn-around in those trends of "stupidification" in both genre.

Ah, the good ol days of cal and all those other leagues back in the day. Had no life outside high school for 3 years (well not entirely, over exaggerating ) due to non-stop CS:S addiction/practice. Can't say I'm interested in this now that BF3 is coming.

Take #2 at a sequel to CS 1.6 by Valve. Let's see what they bring to the table this time. I do think it will be better this time around but I have my sincere doubts that Counter-Strike is ever going to regain its glory during it's heyday of the global 1.6 craze - especially if Valve are going to give the series much less love than some others (TF2, Dota2, portal etc.). And HL2E3 is gonna come out in 2020, maybe.

Same for me. Need Half Life!

I'm not sure how I feel about a new CS game. I guess I don't feel like I need a new CS game since I still get plenty of joy from playing the old versions still. It has a certain charm to it that I doubt a new CS game would capture, especially if adopts many of the trends in modern FPS games.

Fair enough; assuming that many of those trends do get adopted, there is no reason that Valve could not include an 'old school' playlist which eschews them all.

I think Valve is going to have a hard time competing with the likes of the Modern Warfare series in terms of multiplayer interest.

The new CS is either going to be wildly successful or bomb pretty bad, yeah. Considering CS is still pretty popular in both 1.6 and Source flavors combined, mainly among professional gamers, this will probably have some degree of success if only out of curiosity from the pro crowd and CoD players looking for something new. I'm tempted to play it for old times sake (that and I'm kinda vac banned on my account with CS: Source anyways) since I used to play CS so much but I doubt I could sit through it for more than a few minutes. Except for Half-Life (where is episode 3 dammit) FPS as a genre is something I can't really stand anymore.

TF2 and portal are out of the way these days. I don't expect anything new from either soon other than one final update for the Pyro video.

The only question is how long the development is going to be for this CS. Valve time can be a bitch.
