Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is an online first-person shooter developed by Valve Corporation and Hidden Path Entertainment. It is the fourth game in the Counter-Strike series. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, OS X, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on August 21, 2012.


The game is a sequel to the Counter-Strike series, which is a mod of the Valve game Half-Life. As in the previous games in the series, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a team-based game, in which players use firearms and explosives to fight against each other. It is played from a first-person perspective. Each player must choose to play as one of two teams: terrorists or counter-terrorists.

The objective of the game is to complete the mission, whether it is to plant or defuse the bomb, or to rescue or protect the hostages.  The game pits two teams of five players against each other: the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists. Both teams are tasked with completing a set of objectives, either defending or attacking the map, depending on the team's chosen game mode. If the team completes the objectives or kills all of the opposing team, they win the round. The game is won by either completing the final objective or by killing all the players on the other team.


Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has improved graphics compared to its predecessor, Counter-Strike: Source. The game also includes new maps, characters, and weapons. The graphics of the game are excellent, and the gameplay is very smooth. The weapons are realistic and the maps are well designed.
