Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is arguably the most popular online shooter in the world today, but one modder has nostalgically re-created the original Counter Strike maps in this amazing mod that brings the old-days back to life.
Counter-Strike: Classic Offensive re-creates several maps from version 1.6 of Counter Strike and ports them to Global Offensive, giving them a modern, updated look in the process. It's not just the environments that have changed, though. The author has made changes to everything, weapons, sounds, the way stats work, and even the physics, to make the game feel right at home in these classic environments.
“The goal of my mod is to bring back the 1.6 feeling of Counter-Strike, that means: weapons, sounds, stats, physics, etc... some stuff such buying ammo or even choosing your player model won’t be possible without plugins but I plan to make the mod without them, even if they’re really useful... servers could still use them though.”
While it's obviously not possible to re-create every feature from CS 1.6, due to obvious differences in engine, there's enough here to give you a great sense of nostalgia while simultaneously feeling fresh with it's updated graphics and clever use of assets. Combined with the new weapons, skins, player models and sounds, it makes for a truly excellent experience.
If you're looking forward to playing this, it'll be out on December 25th - so consider it another Christmas present to look forward too!
