Preview: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive


Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 12 years ago.

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

„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 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.”

CS: GO is being developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment. The title is targeted for release in early 2012 and will be playable at this year’s PAX Prime and Eurogamer Expo.

New Release : Darksiders 2


Based on remarks made at this year’s International Game Developers Association (IGDA) Leadership Forum, THQ executive vice president Danny Bilson revealed that the sequel to Darksiders will be a story that actually runs concurrent to the events in the first game. This is surprising development considering (SPOILER AHEAD) the ending of Darksiders seemed to set up a sequel in which the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse would be reunited in the war against Heaven and Hell (END SPOILER). Whether it’s a follow-up featuring a more badass War, or a concurrent story, we’re certainly intrigued by what’s next in this franchise.
