Same as with the previous events, Operation Hydra offers new content, including co-op missions or additional community maps, as well as numerous assignments with increasing difficulty levels and new skins available through the Operation Hydra Case. When it comes to content, the players are left with a new set of maps (7 - 4 new and 3 legacy maps) and three game modes: War Games, Wingman, and Weapon Expert, offering additional gameplay modifiers.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive had debuted in 2012 as a new incarnation of the popular Counter-Strike. The game has quickly garnered a cult and prolific following thanks to the unique gameplay which is easy and casual while being demanding at the same time. As always, we are taking part in team-based matches that take place on small, yet complex maps.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Video Game
- genre: Action
- developer: Valve Software
- publisher: Valve Corporation
- platform: PC, X360, PS3
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is another, after Counter-Strike: Source, attempt at refreshing the popular shooter that started out as a Half-Life modification. Despite the changes and all the time that has passed, the title remains great teamwork-based action game.
There are four game modes available: Arms Race, Demolition, Classic: Casual, and Classic: Competitive. The first is a variation of the classic deathmatch — after killing an enemy, we receive a new gun. The second one works similarly, although the game is divided into rounds, just like in classic modes. The third, as the name suggests, is meant for beginners, and its task is to introduce them to Counter-Strike by disabling friendly fire, among other things. Classic: Competitive, in turn, is devoid of all conveniences.
The matchmaking system was also overhauled, and now seeks opponents based on our skill level. Apart from Valve servers, the players may also host their own games.
