Counter Strike: Global Offensive announced
The rumours about the next game in the Counter Strike series have been confirmed by Valve. The game will be entitled Counter Strike: Global Offensive and will be on PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PS3.
"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" says Valve's Doug Lombardi.
Little is currently known about the game but it will be multiplayer focused and we will be seeing some remakes of classic maps; 'de_dust' has been confirmed for the game. I am certainly excited about this news but the fact that it will be appearing on the Playstation Store and Xbox Live Arcade (typically the home of smaller releases) might mean that it won't be competing with the heavyweight shooters, on console at least.
