Counter-Strike is the #1 online action game in the world. After a one-year public Beta, Counter-Strike was commercially released in Fall 2000. It has sold over 1 million copies worldwide, been named Game of the Year by several gaming publications, and is the headliner at competitive gaming tournaments around the world.
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero (CS:CZ) advances this award-winning series by introducing single-player action and special enhancements for online play. CS:CZ is a tactical action game that challenges you to compete with and against cunning computerized opponents in mission-based campaigns across the globe.
As a squad leader in an elite counter-terrorist operative, use specialized maneuvers and weapon skills to complete over 20 brand new missions, each containing numerous objectives. Drop into challenging scenarios -- from harsh jungle environments to severe arctic terrains, unforgiving deserts to dangerous international city streets. Rescue hostages. Escort VIPs to safety. Locate and defuse bombs. A collection of entirely new episodes challenge your ability to think quickly and strategically.
Success depends on fine-tuning your squad units, each with unique weapons, combat styles and resources that enable fresh approaches to every mission. To improve your chances in the field, learn elite skills and enhance player attributes in special training missions for weapon accuracy, bomb defusal, and other specialized expertise. Each completed mission earns players cash rewards that can be used to purchase equipment and weapon upgrades.
Powered by an enhanced Half-Life engine, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero introduces new game technologies including highly-detailed models; atmospheric enhancements, such as snow and rain; and more dynamic special effects -- taking the #1 online action game into new territory.
Condition Zero also introduces never-before-seen elements to the game series. New, sharper character models and locale-specific skins enable detailed squad customization options -- over 160 character combinations in all. An arsenal of new advanced weaponry and equipment is available to teams, including upgraded firepower, bulletproof riot shields and more.
True to the game’s roots, each map is available for multiplayer gaming. Play through each mission with a friend in co-op mode, jump online for traditional multiplayer excitement, or hone your skills in skirmish mode against CS:CZ's unparalled AI.
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is a co-production by Gearbox and Valve. In the collaborative spirit of CS, Gearbox and Valve tapped the creative talents of mapmakers and technology designers in the CS community. And several of the tools and technologies created in the making of CS:CZ will be released to the MOD community after launch.
