Counter Strike: Global Offensive, is one of the most popular online multiplayer games ever. What started out as a simple shooter literally became a global phenomenon. Between its tight gameplay, infinite replayability, and frequent updates, the game was a hit. So much so that it even got full-on competitions for the best players to test their skills in. Now, a couple of modders have taken to Indiegogo to help improve the game even more.
Two modders have made a full-on campaign on Indiegogo in hopes of turning Counter Strike into a western shooter. Something they note has never been done before on Counter Strike. The goal here is to not totally redo the game per se, but rather, to make a series of high quality playable maps, along with some other assets, to give Counter Strike a fully western persona.
The two behind this note that they do have modding experience. In fact, some of their past work has been making and modding maps for Counter Strike. Which once available to the public, went right to the top of the CS: GO charts in terms of downloads. They also note that these maps, once made, will be absolutely free to download on Steam.
So why the campaign itself? They state that though they’ve done this before, it takes a lot of time. Especially since for these western levels, they’re doing them all by scratch, so thus it’ll take even more time. This Indiegogo will help fund the process, as well as fund the servers that their maps would run on.
The campaign is live now, and is asking for $2,000.
