Valve has this week started accepting pre-orders for their new Counter-Strike: GO sequel to the popular Counterstrike FPS game launched back in 1999.

CS: GO promises to expand on CS’ award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac.”
Valve is also offering a CS: Complete package which includes the full set of games in the series: CS, CS: Condition Zero, CS: Source, CS: GO, at a 66 percent discount until the end of today. Unfortunately there is still no news on when Xbox 360 console gamers will be able to purchase the new game.
