Counter-Strike

Loading

Counter-Strike, or more commonly known to the world as just CS, is the very first game in the popular online multiplayer series known as Counter-Strike. The game was ported to Xbox in 2003, and it fully launched on the OS X and Linux in April 2013.

In this game, which was originally a mod, players pick teams, either the terrorists or the counter-terrorists, and they try to accomplish their missions.

Terrorists have to do as their name describes best, conduct various heinous acts and entice terror. Terrorists will try to plant bombs and take hostages, while the other team tries to stop them. Players that pick the Counter-terrorists have to prevent the terrorists from accomplishing their missions, so your job will be to defuse bombs and save hostages.

At the end of each round in this game, players get rewarded. Your rewards will increase in accordance with your performance in the previous match, and the in-game currency that you get is used to buy more powerful weapons.

Counter-Strike was a mod for Half-Life and it was created by two people, Minh "Gooseman" Le and Jess "Cliffe" Cliffe. Later down the line, the game's intellectual property was claimed by Valve Corporation, the developers of Half-Life, the game whose assets were used when this mode was first created.

While Counter-Strike has long seemed one of those games that might just have found its final form and will now be around forever, I am surprised that it’s still breaking its own records. Over the weekend, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive set a new record for the number of people in-game online at the same time, beating a record set in April 2016. That was back before CS:GO went free-to-play, mind, but it’s taken a year for free CS to climb up and topple that mighty record. 901,681 ...

Counter-Strike is 20 this year, incredibly. The Half-Life mod was released way back in 1999, before being acquired by Valve, who then launched the 1.0 version in 2000. To celebrate the anniversary, you can now play an older version of the classic Dust 2 map in CS:GO. A revamped Dust 2 was released in 2017, but Valve's released a "retro version" that you can check out in the Casual Dust 2 map group. It's an enduring, popular map and almost as old as Counter-Strike itself, so i...
