Valve has just announced a new twist to their heavily popular shooter franchise, the Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
At the moment, there wasn’t much details we can go on to learn how the game would look like. So, to get more information on this title, it is best to ask from someone who thoroughly played the game, not a staff from Valve, but an average fan who also happened to loved first person shooter type of games.
Bastian is one of the luckiest man around to get his hands dirty on the new CS, speaking on Twitter, he said that he has tried the PC version of Counter Strike: Global Offensive and cast doubt if it can compete with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 which are set to release later this year, “We only saw the pc version but you could tell that it will work on console. Question is if it can compete with COD and BF3…”
Asked how he can describe the game, “It’s an all new game and it felt completely different on both days because they changed so much over night.It’s real hard to say!” Bastian exclaimed.
However, there are seem to be divided opinions between the older generations of the franchise. The CS: GO in particular has been reported not to live up the expectations it can carry on from the previous reiteration of 1.6 Counter Strike. Even more, Valve has also allegedly did not get help from the 1.6 experts before building up the game.
“Just don’t get that wrong. This is NOT gonna be CS2… Like what you would might expect…” Bastian argued.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive is due for a release next year on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
