Counter Strike Global Offensive

Valve confirmed in a morning press release that it is bringing Gun Game to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which is due for release on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Steam early next year. The mode started its life as a mod for Counter-Strike: Source, and it will be brought back in updated form as two different match types in the new game:  Arsenal: Arms Race and Arsenal: Demolition.

No details were revealed about how each of the two options will work, but their matches will unfold on a set of mode-specific maps, with eight of them in all. Valve is working with the developers of the original mod to ensure a faithful translation.

Gun Game might be familiar to fans of the Call of Duty series, as a modified version of the Counter-Strike original was included among the Wager Match options in Black Ops. In the original CS mod, all players start the match with a pistol and then unlock a new weapon with each kill. You frag your way through through the game's arsenal, with the knife being the last weapon you must use.

We'll have to wait a little bit longer to find out what the difference between Demolition and Arms Race is. It could be something as simple as free-for-all/team deathmatch. Whatever the case, it's great to hear that Valve is working with the mode's original architects to bring us something special.
