Counter-Strike has long be a staple of multiplayer action on the PC and now it’s moved onto PS3 and Xbox 360 with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It’s a Valve product, so that means they have a nifty opening video, but this is different than their usual fare.

While this video shows all the signs of a Valve product, including professional cinematography, it is purposefully lacking any humor. The video still does a great job of subtly introducing gameplay elements available in the game itself with a tension filled plot between special operations soldiers and terrorists.
