You've seen the debut trailer, you've read Totilo's take on the game, now see the first eight screenshots for Valve's upcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

In case you're only just joining us, CS:GO is a new take on the venerable multiplayer shooter promising a few tweaks to the system, new weapons, new maps and even a casual mode for those either new to the game or returning after a long layoff brought about by fear and/or dislike of the game's experienced, hardcore fans.


There'll even be cross-platform multiplayer between PC and PS3, the latter able to use a mouse and keyboard (though the game will also be released on Xbox 360).
