<Counter-Strike: Global Offensive> Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (2011) is the latest game of the Counter-Strike franchise, running on the Source engine. The game is available on PC, through Steam, as well as Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game contains the well known hostage and bomb scenarios and has several new game modes not included in its predecessors, including "Deathmatch", "Demolition" and "Arms Race". The Arms Race and Demolition game modes are based on the popular mod "Gungame".

Deathmatch is a game mode in which the player's goal is to place highest on the leaderboard by killing players on the enemy team with whatever weapon they wish to use. Weapons cost no money and only rifles and pistols may be bought. Players have a short invulnerability period to buy weapons before moving and respawning is allowed. In the end, the three players that got the most points are showcased under the "[Team Name] Wins" message.

Demolition is a fast paced mix of bomb planting and gun progression. There are no buy menus, you start with a rifle and if you get a kill that round – you get a progressively weaker weapon in the next round.

Arms Race game mode is a single extended round with instant respawn. All players start with the same weapon and get a new one each time they kill an enemy. The progression of unlocked weapons ends with the knife. The first player to get a kill with every weapon wins the match.

New weapons have also added: Molotov grenades which create a pool of fire in the ground, Decoy grenades which create fake weapon sounds and a taser melee weapon, the Zeus x27.

Technology-wise, a new method of lighting has been implemented, wherein outdoor lighting (which previously was handled by a light_environment entity and produced only static lighting) now casts harsh, directional shadow maps similar to env_projectedtexture. Details about the inner workings of this method have yet to be revealed.
