I think I’m going to cake my pants… again! Here’s the first vid of Counterstrike Global Offensive – via Gametrailers. As you may have read from our last post on this there will be some new additions and apparently Cross Platform matches is another!! That’s right, the indication is that PS3/PC/Mac (but not Xbox) can kill each other and scream fan-boy obscenities at one other – Great!! What better game to do it on eh?! Matches will be made against each other based on skill, regardless of input device or platform. This is possible because PS3 players can use a mouse and keyboard combo to even the odds, or you can just use the standard game controller. You can even use PlayStation Move motion controller if you’re feeling masochistic enough.
The beta is available this October but will probably require an invite from Valve. Counterstrike GO will also be at PAX and most other gaming events from here on out so we are sure to get more peaks at this wonderful, skilled, strategic, god of shooters, game. Can you tell I’m a fan? If you want a full rundown Kotaku, who have played the actual Demo have the full skinny here.
