Valve has announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Global Offensive is developed by Hidden Path Entertainment in conjunction with Valve, and is described as an updated version of the classic Counter-Strike content, and will also feature new modes, maps, weapons and characters.

“Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999,” said Valve’s Doug Lombardi.

“For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise.

“CS: GO promises to expand on the CS’ award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac.”

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is due in early 2012 on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN.
