If there's one universally acknowledged truth held among video game marketers, it's that people who play video games also like trance music. So it makes sense that Darude – the Finnish trance producer who's 'Sandstorm' went belatedly viral last year – is currently working on a custom sound pack for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Darude announced the news on Reddit, where Counter-Strike fans (or Darude fans, I can't be sure) were generally positive about the news.

Others had some useful suggestions.

The producer didn't indicate when the sound pack would release, though that's him working on it at the top of the page. It's to help promote his new album Moments, which released in August.

To jog your memory, here's 'Sandstorm'. If you don't need your memory jogged, just watch the video anyway. Thanks for the heads up, Kotaku.
