Counter-Strike: Global Offensive debut trailer

{Warning: The following trailer may not be suitable for all ages}

Without a doubt Counter-Strike was a pioneer in team-based action gameplay when it was launched 12 years ago. The good folks at Valve are looking to expand upon that with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the next installment in the series which began as a fan-made MOD over a decade ago.

CS:GO will feature new characters, new maps, and new weapons, but perhaps most exciting for fans of the series will be the updated visuals.

It’s being developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment. The title is targeted for release in early 2012 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
