Valve announced this morning that the next version of Counter-Strike, dubbed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, will hit PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and both PC and Mac on Steam for approximately $15 on August 21 of this year.

Courtesy of Valve and Hidden Path Entertainment (Counter-Strike: Source, Defense Grid: The Awakening), CS:GO is intended to introduce the classic adversarial shooter to new audiences with updated versions of content that CS players have been shooting each other for nearly 13 years.

CS:GO also includes the features gamers expect out of a modern online game: matchmaking, leaderboards, and the like.

Check back later in the week for hands-on impressions from the GI team on the show floor at E3 2012 here in Los Angeles.
