Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pre-orders available from today


Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now tantalising inches away from being available to pre-order, with the official Counter-Strike blog now playing host to a big old sexy blue pre-order button. The offer is due to go live today, ahead of the game’s release on August 21. You can either keep refreshing the CS:GO Steam page, or go for a nice walk and check it when you come back later. You can literally do whatever you like as long as you remain within the boundaries of the law and social conventions.

Here’s the trailer, if you’ve somehow managed to avoid it until now. Meanwhile, top Counter-Strike players are urging rival Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Source communities to rally around Global Offensiveas the single, unified and ultimate competitive FPS.
