Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 12 years ago.
CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.
"Counter Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombardi at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. 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."
Classic: Competitive – queue up and start the standard 5vs5 match on one of the classic maps. Join a random team or create your own and join the game as a unit
Classic: Casual – if you don’t want to commit to a full match, then play the game on your own pace. You will automatically receive body armor and defusal kits. What is more, each kill is rewarded with bonuses.
Demolition – this fast-paced gameplay puts players in a unique competition where one team assaults and the other defends the bombsite.
Arms Race – this game mode includes instant respawns and close-quarter combat. You gain new weapon immediately after you register a kill. To win the match you need to get a kill with an ultimate weapon- golden knife.
