Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Will Receive Darude Sound Pack

Sandstorm has not yet been confirmed.


Finnish trance DJ Darude is creating a sound pack for Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Sound packs replace the default sounds for guns, reloads, and player actions.

News of the Sandstorm pack was announced on the CS:GO Reddit, where Counter-Strike and Sandstorm fans from all corners of the world gather. The official and verified Darude account revealed the custom sound pack was made to celebrate the release of his new album, Moments.

It is unclear as of yet whether his 90s smash hit Sandstorm will be part of the Darude Counter-Strike: Global Offensive sound pack. The DJ has been very noticeably dodging questions regarding the inclusion of the track.

The track, which goes "Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun, dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dundun dun dundundun dun dun dun dun dun dun dundun dundun," has become something of a meme on the internet as of late.

Responses to any YouTube comment asking "what song is that in the video" more often than not get the reply "Darude - Sandstorm," regardless of if it is Sandstorm or not. But before that, it was the Counter-Strike player's anthem.

Why? We're not quite sure. Maybe because Europeans really loved CS back before it became the global competitive shooter sensation it is now. But, thankfully, the community has matured to the point where we can all enjoy Darude's Santstorm.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is one of the most popular games on all of Steam. It is the top overall game on the platform with more than 614,000 people playing the game, outpacing even DOTA 2.
