Valve has announced today that they are working with former Counter-Strike modders to make their game modes an official part of the upcoming title, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The two new modes are based on a mod called Gun Game from the original. However, they'll be getting a new name as "Arsenal: Arms Race" and "Arsenal: Demolition." We don't have any specifics on how those games will play, but we do know a bit about the mod they're based on.
In the original Gun Game, players started with only a basic pistol and needed to score kills in order to gain better and better weaponry (eschewing the model of the original game which had players using points to buy whatever equipment they preferred.)
Counter-Strike has had dozens of mods over the years, and it will be interesting to see if Valve chooses to include any of those as well. Certain games like "Zombie Mod" cast some players as zombies that must "spread the infection" to other players. (Though you've got to use your imagination a bit since "zombies" which just players who could only use a knife.)
