Counter-Strike fans can rejoice, as Global Offensive is now available to pre-order on Steam. Valve is offering a 10% discount for all pre-orders, so $13.49 will net you a copy instead of $15. There is no four-pack available at this time, but that could change in a week or so. CS:GO launches on August 21, which gives you a right around two weeks to decide if the newest CS is for you. Pre-ordering does grant you access to the beta on August 14, which should get everyone ready for the new installment. The beta for CS:GO will continue to run up until launch, but next Tuesday brings a massive patch for it. The full details of the patch can be read at the source, but suffice to say everything is receiving a tweak.
The mod turned game that took the gaming world by storm so many years ago has been improved with new maps, characters, weapons, and gameplay modes. We will have to see if Counter-Strike: Global Offensive can do the same. The PlayStation Network and Xbox Live versions will also launch on August 21, but those will be at the full price.
