Counter-Strike: Global Offensive hits consoles and PC in August

Priced at $15 on digital distribution stores

Valve has confirmed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac will be out on August 21.


"To be available via the Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam (for PC and Mac), CS: GO will expand upon the team-based action gameplay pioneered when Counter-Strike was launched almost 13 years ago (CS beta 1, August 1999)," said the press release.

The game will launch on all stores for $15.

"CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO introduces new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more," adds Valve.

The game will be playable on the E3 show floor so expect more details soon.
