Late last week, Valve released a short cinematic trailer for multiplayer shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. While impressive, it was a bit on the short side. Now they've unveiled the extended cut, clocking in at four minutes.

The video shows a team of terrorists attempting to destroy a nuclear power plant by planting explosives in its core. Counter-terrorists are deployed to stop them. The fierce battle between the two forces ends with a last-minute defusal of a bomb.

What I really like about this video is that, unlike most cinematic trailer, it's representative of the actual game. I've experienced many CS:GO matches that play out exactly like this. Furthermore, the trailer was made with the Source Filmmaker, so it's utilizing the actual in-game assets. The nuclear power plant in this video is a map from the game.

CS:GO is an updated version of the former Half-Life mod. A team of terrorists and a team of counter-terrorists square off and must either complete opposing objectives or wipe out all enemies. The game features a mixture of old and new maps, weapons and characters all dressed up with current-gen visuals.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will be released digitally on the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac tomorrow. It'll be priced at $14.99.
