About Counter Strike
The game was initially launched in 1999 as a mod and has evolved into a series of multiplayer first-person shooter video games in which teams battle to perpetrate an act and groups of counter-terrorists try to prevent it via situation defusal or rescue.
Several community-based spin-off titles have been created, 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 performance with a virtual currency to spend on weapons in subsequent rounds. Rounds that are won result in more money than lost, 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 assessed to play, and the game has gathered an active competitive scene with several tournaments. More About Counter Strike.
