Valve Software has, once again, proven that releasing mod support for your games is the right way to go. This doesn't just make sense from the standpoint of a fan, but from the standpoint of a developer and publisher, as well.
When Counter-Strike: Global Offensive launches next Tuesday, players will already have an excellent community mod to download. PlagueFest.com is ready to go with a Counter-Strike update for their popular Counter-Strike mod, Zombie Mod. Truth be told, the update is ready to go now if you're lucky enough to be a part of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive beta test.
It was important to us as we developed CS:GO to make sure it was as moddable and extensible as any CS game. So this is just one of many mods that will be available to CS:GO in the coming months. Are you actively developing a mod for CS:GO? Let us know.
Without their previous support of community-developed modifications, Valve would undoubtedly not be able to boast a popular, day one mod for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Check out PlagueFest.com for more information!
