In a posting on its official Steam Web site, Valve software announced that it hadn't called it quits for the holidays just yet. Two new player models for Counter-Strike: Source will be released this week, and there's a chance of a Day of Defeat: Source update also arriving in time for the holidays. Looking slightly into the future, Valve is planning to release a completely rebuilt version of the Counter-Strike map cs_militia in the new year.
Exlusiveburner / revthegod has no clue what he is talking about (They got owned too much i guess) ... And stubbornTH has a point, this game is awsome. And updates are allways welcome as well. I was getting tired of the old skins any way. Soon it will be allmost perfict like it's predecessor (in my opinion) and i hope it will be even more popular that it's predecessor(hopefully )
Notice how the conversation has completely left the news post? Anyway, should be an interesting update for the fans currently playing.
Counterstrike is all about strategy, to someone who doesnt play it that much it may seem simplistic but its all about pin-point accuracy and working well as a team. Its sucha solid game to begin with, stop worrying about making another one, i personally would rather have them tweak the one they have now into the best possible game
How is this in any way significant? Yes, new maps are awesome, but I suck at them, so I'm bitter. Just give me my dust and dust_2 and I'm happy. Valve is hardly doing anything by releasing player skins, they just want to appear to be doing new things. I'd like a more substantial release, i just can't think of it yet. Toronto Darkly w00t
I'm already used to 5 different player models, but a new militia map is awsome. Valve just own. Hard.
Counter-Strike is the best shooter ever - pity they screwed it a bit with source - why bring new stuff to a crappy game - just make a new game with perfect gameplay
Hope we can choose the models we play in this time. Unless we already can, havent played in five months.
Good news :) By the way, it is almost definite that THERE WILL NOT BE ANOTHER COUNTER-STRIKE (after counter-strike:source) UNTIL HALF-LIFE 3 (which has been confirmed). So, yeah. Just wanted to make that clear.
I loved cs_militia and confused it with de_nuke and I was disappointed when I joined my first game. Yeah, I liked nuke but militia was one of my favorites. Can't wait for the new models and map.
Finally! My favorite CS map of all time comes to Source. Now if they would just make dod_caen for DoDS we'd be in business.
silversklsim: Counter-Strike: Source is not Counter-Strike 2. It's been stated that Counter-Strike: Source is a REMAKE of the original mod, made with the Source engine. That's why it has all the old maps and weapons.
Bring the graphics up to par? Have you been smokin' crack? CS:S still has some of the best graphics around! (FEAR is the only thing I've seen that comes close.) Every time I play I'm in awe of what Valve has done. Upgrade your cpu and video card and take another look dude.
Well, I think it is definitly time that CS got some new character models, the old ones are getting, well, old.
counter strike isnt that great of a game to begin with..so updating it more and more really is a waste when they could be working on a new game all together...its so basic but sum people love it...you get kills you buy better weapons to get kills and you get killed...there's sum strategy involved but not enough....they should just start working on Counter Strike 2 and skip adding HDR to all these outdated maps with outdated guns(except for the modded ones which are better then originals) bring the graphics up to par add new weapons and new maps with new game types
