Counter-Strike Global Offensive Beta footage leaks, looks promising


For those who were not lucky enough to be accepted into the Counter-Strike Global Offensive Beta program, new game-play footage from the beta leaked onto the internet today showcasing the games beauty and simplicity.

The current beta program began on November 30th and accommodated around 10,000 beta testers. Unfortunately for those who were not accepted into the beta program, the only tease you can get is from leaked screnshots or videos of gameplay footage. As you can see in the video above, the game looks amazing. This game has come a long way compared to preview installments. The game has mostly aesthetic improvements, and we are not complaining!

One thing to note is that the weapon selection screen has been totally revamped. It is now intuitive and easier to use.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is due for Windows (via Steam) in early 2012 and will have an updated version of classic maps, as well as some new maps. The game will also have new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leaderboards, new characters, and new weapons.
