Two weeks after revealing that it's working on a new Counter-Strike game, Valve has given us mere mortals a first look at the game. A short, one-minute trailer appeared on Steam yesterday, and it's already made its way onto YouTube. Behold!
The game looks like a serious graphical overhaul over Counter-Strike: Source, and CS fans will be happy to see that many of the original maps have stuck around. Just off the top of my head, I can see updated versions of de_aztec, de_dust, de_italy, de_nuke, de_office, and de_dust2. All of those maps appear to have been spruced up with new graphics, but what little I can see, Valve hasn't messed with the layouts.
These updated graphics give CS: GO kind of a Modern Warfare vibe. That, plus the new matchmaking features and cross-platform release, seems like it ought to attract a new generation of gamers to CS. (Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the tip.)
