One of my biggest fears in Valve bringing Counter-Strike to consoles and all gamers is the possible loss of server-side mods. One mod I've always been particularly fond of is GunGame. The hand-crafted mod is all the way past Version 5. How are they going to bring all of that wonderfully addictive gun progression to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive?
Hire the original modders, duh!
In an official statement, GunGame project lead Micheal Barr said:
We are excited that Valve reached out and is working with us to ensure Arsenal Mode is the best version of GunGame.
"Arsenal: Arms Race" and "Arsenal: Demolition" will bring eight new maps to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and release with the game. CS: GO will be in beta testing this Fall and will release early next year. Until then, check out the new screens sent over with this announcement.
