A lot of old school FPS gamers got pretty excited when Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) was officially unveiled a couple of weeks ago, and now Valve has released more content for us folks to get excited about in the form of an official trailer for the game. More details have also been released about the game: Valve will be developing CS: GO for all three platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) at the same time, so we should be looking at a simultaneous launch as well. Though we’re not sure how fair cross-platform multiplayer is going to be but hey – everyone gets a choice of which version of the game to buy right?
The game is said to be launching with at least seven maps, which include updated versions of popular maps from the original game: dust, dust2, Aztec, nuke, inferno, Italy and Office. The game will feature the same bomb defuse and hostage rescue modes, as well as some unannounced new ones as well. There will also be new weapons such as the decoy grenade and Molotov cocktail. Check out the official trailer and some gameplay footage of an updated de_dust:
