Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the fourth title in Valve’s hit multiplayer first-person shooter series. A pioneer of team-based action gameplay, Counter-Strike pits two teams (terrorists against counter-terrorists) against each other in objective-based battles. Plant bombs, defend hostages and engage in bloody warfare in pursuit of victory.

Since its release in 2012, CS:GO has attracted millions of players to its servers. As one of the most-played games on video game platform Steam, the title constant attracts concurrent players in the hundreds of thousands. Given the title’s popularity, CS:GO esports is now a major part of the scene, having generated prize pools of more than $50 million through competitions such as the World Electronic Sports Games and ELEAGUE.
