    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive coming to XBLA, PSN and Steam early 2012 [update]
    by Griffin McElroy on Aug 12th 2011 12:56PM

    Update: Looks like we didn't have to wait too long at all for confirmation of the project: Valve and Seattle-based developer Hidden Path Entertainment just distributed a press release announcing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, an updated and expanded version of the seminal team-based shooter.

    Slated for an early 2012 release on XBLA, PSN and Steam, the downloadable title will add "new maps, characters, and weapons," renovated versions of classic maps (what's up, de_dust) and a plethora of new modes, matchmaking options, leaderboards and other modern shooter mainstays. Best of all, it'll be playable later this month at PAX Prime. Check out the full press release after the jump!

    Original post: A heaping pile of evidence is growing in support of a future installment in the thoroughly-played Counter-Strike universe -- this one subtitled Global Offensive. The most promising tidbit is the Facebook page of anti-cheat gaming community ESEA, which revealed the name of the game, and promised more info later this morning. The post was preceded by an image of ESEA's Craig Levine at the offices of Valve. (You can tell it's legit, because hey, there's a giant valve.)

    Valve designer Jess Cliffe corroborated the title on the Steam forums, correcting an earlier poster who labeled the game "Global Operation." Also, Electronic Sports League manager Bastian Vieser claimed on Twitter that he "Just spend [sic] all day playing the new Counterstrike Global Offensive" at Valve's HQ. It certainly seems like a real thing -- now there's just the small matter of whether it's a port, expansion or an entirely new game altogether. We've got our freakishly elongated fingers crossed for the latter.

    IM super excited for this game, been a Counter Strike fan since I played 1.6 when I was like 5 with my cousins. I still love playing Source to this day and play it pretty regularly but I always wish I had updated graphics and now we have that. The game cant get much smoother and I think they are making the right decision by not changing the core mechanics of the game. CS's competitve community, both for Source and 1.6 have been slowing the past couple months and I think we will really get to see a surge in the community again. Needless to say Im super excited!

    However Im a bit disappointed in the decision of a console version, CS to me isnt a game that would play well on a console, with an almost headshot only game you cant get the accuracy out a of a controller that is really necessary for a competitive level. I see it selling on console but I dont think the community will be that good, games like MW3 are just to popular for them to overtake on console. Only time will tell.

    Cross platform compatibility has been removed for the time being, It was tested and PC players were just running rings round the players with pads.
