    Counter-Strike : Global Offensive Trailer+Info


    Looks GOOD..


    What is CS:GO?

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (also known as CS:GO or CSGO) is the third and latest installment in Valve Software‘s critically-acclaimed Counter-Strike series, which is arguably the most popular and successful multiplayer first-person shooter on the PC in history and has dominated the online action market for more than a decade. It uses the Source engine and is slated for release in the first quarter of 2012 (in Valve Time that is), and will be available on PC as well as Xbox 360 (on the Xbox Live Arcade) and PlayStation 3 (on the PlayStation Network). It is intended to appeal to both casual and competitive gamers.
    The Basics

    Title: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
    Developed by: Valve Software, Hidden Path Entertainment
    Published by: Valve Software
    Platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Mac
    Game Modes: Casual and Competitive
    Map Types: Both defuse (de_) and hostage (cs_) maps will be returning
    Release: Q1 2012
    Engine: Latest Source engine (Portal 2)
    Beta: first wave of closed beta keys to be given out at PAX and Eurogamer in late August / early September
    Confirmed Features / Information

    IMPORTANT: The game is in pre-beta status at the present time and is still heavily under development, so many of these features may change before beta or release, but at the time of writing they were indicative of gameplay in the current build. All facts can be sourced from the articles and videos in the reference list at the bottom of the page.

    Matchmaking system for teams and individuals (with Elo rating system)
    Focus on competitive 5v5 play and eSports
    Ranked servers run by Valve (Competitive mode only)
    Dedicated servers run by players (Casual mode only)
    LAN support confirmed
    Ranked / Ladder play for both individuals and 5 man teams (Competitive mode)
    Bullet penetration through some walls / materials / objects
    Classic CS gameplay – no ironsights
    Competitive and Casual modes
    Gameplay derived from both CS 1.6 and CS: Source with new twist
    Weapons have been rebalanced to make weapon selection more interesting (so that players use more than the typical AK, M4, AWP, and Desert Eagle)
    Beta is on PC only, starts in early September as a closed beta
    Defuse and Hostage maps
    Molotov grenades: create a pool of fire on the ground which slows movement speed of players crossing it and causes area of effect damage
    Decoy grenades: emit fake weapon firing sounds to confuse enemies about your team’s position
    New money system / weapon and equipment prices
    Kevlar and helmet cannot be purchased, are given at beginning of every round like ammo
    Ammo doesn’t need to be bought (like CS:S)
    SourceTV not currently a priority
    Forced DirectX 9 for everybody (for balance); DX10+ not supported
    Flashbangs behave like in 1.6 – if you face away, you aren’t blinded for very long
    Classic weapons return, but have been changed / rebalanced
    New shotgun
    New taser melee weapon – one use only, one hit kill
    New heavy machine gun rifle
    New pistols
    Models and hitbox sizes slighty reduced from CS: Source
    Valve wants to support cross-platform play (if permitted by Sony / Microsoft)

    Confirmed Maps

    de_dust2
    de_dust – layout significantly changed (new paths)
    de_aztec – minor changes to layout
    de_nuke – some layout changes
    de_inferno – some layout changes
    de_train – only has one bomb site now
    cs_ hostage maps confirmed, but unknown which will be returning
