Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the latest video game in the immensely popular Counter-Strike franchise of multiplayer shooters. The game was developed by both Hidden Path Entertainment and Valve. It is one of the most competitive shooters out there and it has been present on the scene for a while now. Many shooters have come into the competitive esports spotlight, but Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has a stable player base that has remained ever since the game first launched.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive officially released in August 2012 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and OS X. The Linux version of the game came out two years later in September 2014.
The gameplay of this competitive multiplayer shooter is rather simple, you pick between two teams, Terrorists, and Counter-Terrorists, and you try to fulfill your missions. Terrorists will try to do what they've always done, and that is plant bombs and take hostages. Counter-Terrorists have to take down the terrorists and defuse their bombs and save the hostages. The gunplay of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is absolutely phenomenal, and all the combat in the game is focused on a player's skill. There is no RNG factor in the matches, it's all pure reflexes, tactical thinking, and aim. The game features eight different modes for you to try out, each with their set of rules and objectives for you to complete.
Valve is constantly updating the game with new content and various patches and updates, and the game also features an in-game loot system where you can find various skins for your weapons that alter their appearance only and have no effect on the gameplay.
