In a sign that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will not be all about competitive play, Valve has just announced that CS:GO will include the popular Gun Game mod when the new CS game is released in early 2012. Read on for more details and 9 new screenshots from the game.
Valve is working directly with creators of Gun Game to create Arsenal Mode, which will include two variants: “Arsenal: Arms Race” and “Arsenal: Demolition”. The new game mode will add eight new maps and expand on the classic Counter-Strike gameplay. In the Gun Game mod, players start with a basic pistol and must score kills to receive better weapons. Presumably Arsenal mode will work in the same way.
Michael Barr, project lead of the Gun Game mod, said via press release: “We are excited that Valve reached out and is working with us to ensure Arsenal Mode is the best version of Gun Game.”
CS:GO is targeted for release on Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam (for PC and Mac) in early 2012.
