With all the hot new triple-A titles being displayed at E3, it's easy to forget about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Valve gave all of us a friendly reminder today, though. As Shacknews reports, the studio has announced a release date and pricing for the upcoming tactical multiplayer shooter.
August 21 is the day you'll be able to grab Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Shacknews says. The game will be available on Steam (for Windows and OS X), Xbox Live, and the PlayStation Network. Valve will charge the same price on all platforms: "approximately $15." That sounds quite cheap, considering Counter-Strike: Source still sells for $19.99 on Steam and is nearing its eighth birthday. Then again, we are talking about a multiplayer-only game based on old content.
Global Offensive is a spruced-up version of the popular tactical shooter featuring new graphics, updated versions of old maps, some all-new maps, and new game modes. Valve will imbue the title with its latest multiplayer mojo, so you'll be able to enjoy features like matchmaking and leaderboards. Cross-platform gameplay is planned, too, but only for Mac and PC gamers.
