Counter-Strike: Global Offensive does Mac, PC launch

updated 09:27 am EDT, Wed August 22, 2012

Only Valve's second simultaneous Mac/PC release

Valve has released Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, a long-awaited update to its multiplayer first-person shooter. The game is available through Steam, and marks just the second time that Valve itself has done a simultaneous Mac/Windows launch through the service. In the past couple of years Valve has turned more attention to Mac support for both first- and third-party releases, compensating for the fact that most Steam content is otherwise Windows-centric.

Rather than serving as a full sequel, Global Offensive presents a graphical overhaul, along with an assortment of new maps, characters, and weapons. It also introduces some new gameplay modes, as well as leaderboards and matchmaking functions. The game costs $15; on a Mac players must have at least a 2GHz Intel processor, 2GB of RAM, and ATI Radeon HD 2400 or NVIDIA GeForce 8600M graphics.

    I'm really starting to like Valve. Not only are they creating native ports of some good games on the Mac (Left 4 Dead 2, etc), they've committed to the Linux platform now, which should be available in the next year or so.
