A new update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive released yesterday evening has introduced a rather sizable number of new changes and content, including a new "Huntsman" weapon case, a "Bank Collection" of themed weapons, and the first "Community Sticker" capsule.
The new "Huntsman" case features 15 newly introduced weapon finishes made by both Valve and members of the community. Additionally, the "Bank Collection", which is now dropping at the end of matches, features 15 camoflauge and money-themed weapons, while the "Community Sticker Capsule One" capsule has introduced 18 community-created sticker designs.If cosmetic items aren't quite for you, however, the update has also introduced a wide number of changes for several maps, including a fixed bomb exploit on Seaside and improved park visibility in Overpass. The UPS, M4A1-S, and CZ75a weapons have been made available to use in community Arms Race and Demolition games, which must be added to the server config file by the host. Last, but certainly not least, the update has also added a rather lengthy list of UI improvements, including the ability to adjust the size, colour, and positioning of numerous HUD elements such as the radar and the health/ammo listing, various new tooltips, and an overhauled settings menu.
Updated: 14/05/14A full trailer has been released, revealing the gameplay and campaigns featured in Left 4 Dead: Survivors will actually appear largely the same to that of the original game. Four new exclusive characters have also been revealed, who will likely remain exclusive to this Japanese arcade port.Original PostEarlier today, Japanese developer Taito teased that an arcade version of Left 4 Dead is in development. As with the company’s previous Valve-related arcade port, Half-Life 2: Survivor, Valve has licensed out the series name to Taito, who will use it to develop their own modified title.
Details are sparse on the project thus far, but, given the differences between Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Survivor, it is likely that this version of the game will be very different from the Western release in order to appeal to the extremely large Japanese arcade scene. This somewhat bizarre live action trailer was also shown, featuring people in zombie make-up walking the streets, scaring people and… playing video games.
The video, uploaded back in February, originally revealed "Project Z", a seemingly work-in-progress title which now appears set to be replaced by the aforementioned "Left 4 Dead: Survivors" name revealed on the website earlier today.
