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 VIP’s to safety, locate and defuse bombs and much more. A collection of entirely new episodes will challenge your ability to think quickly and strategically.

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, and an arsenal of new advanced weaponry and equipment are available to teams, including upgraded firepower, bulletproof riot shields and more.

Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is a co-production by Ritual and Valve. In the collaborative spirit of CS, several of the tools and technologies created in the making of CS: CZ will be released to the MOD community after launch.
