Counter Strike: GO (Global Offensive) will be Officially Releasing in early 2012

The Counter-Strike series are some of the most successful multiplayer first person shooter games of all time on their native home of the PC. Starting life as a mod for the original Half-Life, the game enjoyed widespread popularity and spawned a series of variants which remain popular on Steam today.
And now once again, the news is finally official that a new title in Counter-Strike series will soon be added, and it will be called as CounterStrike: GO (Global Offensive. A new Counter-Strike game is heading our way in early 2012. Counter-Strike: Global Offense will be releasing on the PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. Valve says the game, which is being developed by Hidden Path Entertainment, expands on the game's original action.

"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, VP of marketing 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."
Few further details are forthcoming right now, but reports suggest that Valve has been flying out a number of top Counter-Strike community members to their headquarters in Seattle to discuss the future of the game. Those that have been able to dribble out some information without being hunted down by PR agencies have suggested that the new game will offer 5v5 play and be largely aimed at competitive e-sports players.

New Features, Maps and Weapons:
Valve has made this game really more interesting they've added some new maps and the graphics are just awesome.There will also be new gameplay modes, matchmaking and leaderboards incorporated. A few new weapons were added, including a new heavy machine gun rifle, new pistols, and a new shotgun, but I think the biggest addition was with the equipment. They added molotov cocktails, an expensive $850 item, which can be used to slow down opponents and re-route opponents through AOE damage. Molotov cocktails could be used to slow down T rushes through the tunnels into B on Dust2 or by Ts to slow CTs on retakes. Molotovs are currently stackable and bounce (versus an instant break), which might need to be revisited. Decoy grenades are also a new item that can be thrown to emit gun sounds and give the illusion of there being a player. The decoy grenade currently produced an AK / Glock when thrown by Ts and M4 / USP when thrown by CTs.

The new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive could be released as early as the first quarter of next year(2012).
An official press release is said to be on its way,we'll update you soon when we get the news!
