Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in August

Valve announces Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is planned for release on August 21st for Windows, OS X, PlayStation Network, and Xbox LIVE Arcade at the same price of $15.00 across the board:

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) is targeted for release on August 21, 2012.

To be available via the Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam (for PC and Mac), CS: GO will expand upon the team-based action gameplay pioneered when Counter-Strike was launched almost 13 years ago (CS beta 1, August 1999).

CS: GO will be sold for approximately $15 on all platforms.

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO introduces new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

Developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment, the title will be playable in the Sony and Microsoft booths this week at E3 in Los Angeles, CA.

Bah. Some of us are old. We remember when peopled played -the game- and didn't play -the leaderboard-.

Most of the online shooter community is either using a controller ... *cough* or is only interested in being the highest frag count.

Adding bots in allows a lot more people to enjoy a game while giving the option of having other players at the same time. I don't see a downside, unless the bots are hacked Reaperbots who always knew where you were at all times... (UT bots were the best, you could actually sneak up on them.)

I haven't played CS in years, but this looks like a nice upgrade.
