Valve Takes  Counter-Strike  To Consoles With Sequel

Valve Takes Counter-Strike To Consoles With Sequel

August 12, 2011 | By Frank Cifaldi




Half-Life, Portal and Left 4 Dead developer Valve has announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, a sequel to the popular multiplayer team-based shooter.

In addition to updating features and content from the original Counter-Strike, the sequel will come with new characters, maps, gameplay modes and more, says Valve.

Tactical first-person shooter Counter-Strike debuted twelve years ago as a fan-made modification to Valve's original Half-Life. It has since been updated numerous times, and continues to be a popular title for tournament game players.

The sequel is being co-developed with Seattle's Hidden Path Entertainment, which has been developing content and updates for Counter-Strike: Source for some time now.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will debut simultaneously for the PC and Macintosh via Valve's own Steam service, and on both the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network digital delivery systems early next year, and will be playable at this month's PAX Prime expo in Seattle.

More information is available on the game's official website.
