Valve, Developer of game franchises such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, and Portal has announced the upcoming release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Targeted for release on Mac OS and a variety of other platforms in early 2012, CS: GO will expand upon the team-based action gameplay made popular in the original Counter Strike.

Counter Strike: Global Offensive will feature new maps, characters, and weapons as well updated versions of classic CS content. In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, and leader boards.

"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 Lombard, VP of Marketing 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 London Games Festival.
