Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming!

Just minutes ago Joe Miller tweeted thing about "CS:GO" and then following, some other guys also tweeted full name of the new CS title and it seems that tomorrow it is going to be revealed by Valve or press! Stay tuned for some Global Offensive news, but this seems like brand new Counter-Strike, finally. It seems that tomorrow NDA will be lifted and info directly from VALVe and press will explode through the internets.

Keep an eye out for #CSGO tag on twitter as well, as it is going to be used by people that playtested it, it seems.
Check out the source thread: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming!

Another one: Counter Strike Global Offensive Confirmed/

Also, many reports all over the net now.

EDIT: Link to the TE CS:GO Group on Steam

Re: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming!

They have added a steam listing for this: CS:GO

Surprising this is that it seems like its almost ready. They are saying that it will be playable at PAX Prime event next week.

Also, it coming for the consoles too and as suggested in some of the articles, even I feel Valve is directly targeting COD with this.

Re: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming!

More info -

The team-based shooter is targeting Steam (PC and Mac), PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade for early 2012. CS: GO (as it's being called) is being developed at Valve with help from Hidden Path Entertainment, a Seattle studio that cut its Counter-Strike teeth lending a hand on Source updates.

The new game promises new maps, characters, and weapons along with updated versions of classic Counter-Strike content -- "de_dust" is mentioned specifically. Plus we'll see new modes, matchmaking, and leaderboards.

The game will be playable at PAX Prime later this month, and then at the Eurogamer Expo 2011 in September.

Re: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming!

We still haven't seen any gameplay videos. Considering Source Engine is a bit outdated compared to other game engines, I wonder how the graphics will be.

But anyway I suppose we'll still be getting a huge jump from CSS in terms of graphical quality :D

Re: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming!

It will be based on the L4D2 engine, which is modified Source. And there is almost no recoil. Three new guns. Fresh armor every round. AK costs more. "Tweaked" money system. From the link above.

Btw, whatever happened to CS Promod?

No recoil ! WTF!!

This is gonna destroy the originality in the game, it should be there... (keeping fingers crossed !)

May be an option would be provided with less recoil

Re: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming!

WOW!!

On PC and Mac, Counter-Strike: GO players can expect the standard options you get with a Steam game and any of the control options you would have with a computer. On the Xbox 360, players will use a game pad. On the PS3, players can use the game controller, the PlayStation Move motion controller or even a mouse and keyboard. PS3, Mac and PC players will be match-made against each other, clumped by skill, regardless of input device or platform.

Re: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming!

This should settle the controller vs mouse+kb debate. Looking forward to this...

That's sweet. Ps3 people will move to some other game after getting frustrated by pc gamer's in one week.
Dude, didnt you read... PS3 version will also have mouse+KB support!! No idea if they would use it though. Console players would probably be sitting on a couch some distance away from the TV. What would they keep the mouse/kb on?
