Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gets epic launch trailer

Normally when a new game launches we get a little snippet of CG with some tidbits about what kind of story the game will tell, but Valve went all out with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This trailer tells the story of a single round of CS (more or less in real-time) stylishly through the Source Filmmaker.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is due out on PC tomorrow. CS:GO will be based on Counter-Strike Source, but will also bring together a bunch of new content as well, including the new Arsenal mode, as well as a big graphical face-lift.

    This game looks cool. I just got a M4 like in the game and they have a bunch of other guns from different games.

    Great Trailer. Can't wait to play the game myself when I get to it.

    I've been playing the PC beta of this game for a while and overall its fun but I rather buy it on a console system than on PC because of how many hackers I have met already. I'm not sure if there'll be a difference on the console version but regardless, I don't sit well with hackers so I try to get far away from them as possible.

    Hey GamesRadar, I think the video player needs some improvement. Firstly, no matter what computer I run it on or whose, videos always skip, lag, or take a good minute to start playing. Secondly (and lastly), the lack of resolution choice does the player no help. Sometimes it'll dip in quality, both visually and aurally, and take almost 15 - 20 seconds to come back to what should be great quality. 15 - 20 seconds isn't a whole lot of time, but for trailers, every second counts. Just thought I'd throw in my two cents.

    Played the beta for 30 minutes on my lunch break today. The server i was on is already ate up with hackers. Love the game though, take it over COD any day.
