About Counter Strike
The game was originally launched in 1999 as a mod and has evolved to a series of multiplayer first-person shooter video games, in which teams battle to perpetrate an act of and teams of counter-terrorists try to prevent it via situation defusal or rescue.
Several community based spin-off titles have been created over the years including, Neo, and Nexon: Zombies. However the core titles have been Condition Zero and Global Offensive. Games have been released for Microsoft Windows, OSX, Linux, PlayStation 3, Xbox, and Xbox 360.
In the game, players are rewarded based on their individual performance with a virtual currency to spend on weapons in subsequent rounds. Rounds that are won result in more money than losing, and completing objectives such as disabling other players will give a cash bonus.
A player versus player mode is featured in the game, modes such as team deathmatch, hostage rescue, bomb defusal, and player versus environment are choices.
Global Offensive has been transitioned to a free to play model. An estimated 11,000,000 players per month are estimated to play and the game has gathered an active competitive scene with several tournaments. More About Counter Strike.
