Sixty Minutes Of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Gameplay Footage Released

At the Intel Extreme Masters Global Challenge, a team of Europeans faced off against a team of Americans in a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive match. Intel had the good sense to record the match and post it on the Internet.

The teams battle it out on the "de_dust2" map for about an hour. This map is played in "Defusal" mode. A team of Terrorists must plant a bomb at one of two sites. In order to win the round, the Counter-Terrorists must prevent the bomb from being planted until time expires or, failing that, defuse the bomb. Either team can also win by simply wiping out all their opponents.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will have a mixture of old and new maps and odes. Matchmaking and leaderboards will be supported as well. Cross-platform multiplayer is supported for the PS3, PC, and Mac. The PS3 edition can also be played with Move.

Valve, who is co-developing CS: GO along with Hidden Path Entertainment, plans to release the game in early 2012.
