In 2004 Valve released a remake of Counter-Strike built in the new Source engine developed for Half-Life 2. Improved visuals, physics and updated weapons offered a pretty alternative to the much-loved competitive online shooter, but divided die-hard fans. As with the original, teams must fight to plant or defuse bombs, rescue hostages or take out the other team over a series of rounds. If you're shot, you're out until the next round begins.
Valve teamed up with Hidden Path Entertainment to keep CS:S updated. Hidden Path would later play a big part in building the follow-up, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
