As you now know, Valve announced Counterstrike: Global Offensive, or CS:GO as it is also known. Our team here has been working closely with Valve for quite a while on this project and we're very excited for everyone to know about it.
Last week Valve brought in professional CSS competitive players to play the PC version and give our team feedback, and next week, the Xbox 360 version will be playable at PAX for anyone who comes to Valve's booth too. When you come to PAX or the show in London, after you play a round, you will get a code for the upcoming PC beta too.
We'll be there at PAX, watching, taking notes, and making sure that we prepare and iterate to make the best possible Counter-Strike game for you, no matter what your preferred platform is.
Also, if you didn't already know, there is an official Twitter account for the game that will have the very latest and greatest info coming out about it. Follow @csgo_dev (http://twitter.com/csgo_dev) and you'll be plugged in!
