The Global Offensive is ever changing, and with new conflicts comes new places to do battle… which you’ll get to experience FOR FREE.

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."

Reviews for Counter Strike: Global Offensive

Best FPS there is

Spend 1000+ hrs in this game without being bored! A shooter which requires skill and reflexes from the player instead of making it easy to aim as in other games. EU servers are filled with Russians constantly speaking in their mic's when playing casual, but as soon as you start playing competitive all players do their best to win! No play to win, the things you can pay for are skins for weapons and music packs.

Great game to improve team skills

I have played Counter Strike Global Offensive for over 1200 hours and am still playing. While playing on a team you quickly learn how to play as a team which has overall improved my ability and productiveness in group projects. I recommend this game to anybody who enjoys skill based first person shooters. Unlike games like Call of Duty, this game actually requires skill to play efficiently. I do not recommend gambling as this turns into an addiction and you will lose as most sites are rigged in their favour.

After 700 hours I still play it

I still play this game after 700 hours because even after such a long time you are not even close to being good. This is a game which needs an incredible amount of time to master and that is what makes it so special. Get some friends to play with you and you will be entertained for hundreds of hours. The only bad thing is that Valve has incorporated skins which are their main focus instead of the gameplay. So bugs and glitches are often occuring.

A game where it's not your character getting better,but you!

I spent 1,5k hours on the game itself(not counting all the time spent watching pro matches,watching tutorials and reading guides about it) and I am still willing to spend more time,on community servers,workshop maps and by playing the various gamemodes. This is the game in which I invested more time than ever. At first it's going to be hard to learn,especially if you never played any FPS before,you'll have to learn many mechanics,such as recoil control,proper use of nades,good teamwork. You'll find yourself having to search up so many things that you might wonder if it's worth it. The quite toxic community might not help much and might make you want to quit the game,but after you learn to deal with them you'll stop caring and enjoy the competitive part of the game,which is the reason I invested more time in this game than in any other. Every time I learn a new smoke,a new spot,a new way to outplay my enemy,I feel rewarded,I feel satisfied. And that's why I keep playing this game.

Time Sponge

The latest, and in my opinion the best Counter-Strike. This one has all the support, and the largest community. The matchmaking is OK, i rarely run into super soldiers on competitive games, and while there are cheaters, they are not as bad as other online games. If you play 10+ hours a week, the item drops are fairly common, which you can then sell on the market, for steam money. I Got a few good games this way on steam sales. The new multiplayer modes are fun. Arms race is a nice idea, and a great way to learn using other weapons then the scoped ones, demolition is a mini competitive run, with less stakes, and the workshop maps can be really interesting. I played this game for more then a 1000 hours so far, and i can recommend it for anyone.
