Valve today announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now available via Steam.
CS: GO expands on the classic team-based action gameplay that Counter-Strike pioneered. Featuring an arsenal of over 45 weapons, remastered maps, new game modes, new visuals, leaderboards and over 165 Steam Achievements.
The game will also arrive on PSN and XBL tonight and tomorrow, respectively.
Counter-Strike is a tactical first-person shooter which originated from a Half-Life mod in 1999. Since then, the series has seen a number of iterations and has grown to be one of the most popular online shooters ever.
